We remember one of the greatest fashion designers Karl Lagerfeld, a visionary who worked tenaciously to revive the House of Chanel creating more than 15 collections annually. Over the years we published several books on his collections, campaigns and witticisms.
Co-author Patrick Mauriès, who was his friend for 30 years, said: ‘With KL the very last giant of fashion has disappeared. Very few or no one will ever be able to design more than ten collections each year as he has done for decades. But as much or even more than fashion, he loved books and especially art books. It was really a lot of fun, a pleasure and a great privilege to work with him and to add all these new books to the thousands he loved to have around him every day.’
