Happy #artbookfriday! Today I have a true collectible and must-have for all fashion lovers for you. Freshly published in September it’s a true keeper and a beauty for every coffee table. You should get it before it’s sold out.
“Chanel: Catwalk” is one of the biggest books I ever held in my hands, but no wonder, it presents every single collection fashion legend Karl Lagerfeld ever designed for the famous couture house. First of all it’s an adorable book object: black linen and a silver shimmering imprint make the cover as classy as the fashion it contains. And I just love that it has four bookmark ribbons. I mean how awesome is that? You know by know that I love book ribbons and this one has four of them.
It contains more than thirty years of fashion history. When Karl Lagerfeld moved to Chanel in 1983 as the new artistic director, he revolutionized the, at the time, boring designs of the traditional Haute Couture house. Until today Lagerfeld’s catwalks have been one of the most popular events of international celebrities and the press. “Chanel: Catwalk“ is a collection of all collections for Chanel in a chronological order. It also contains a brief introduction, a short biography of Lagerfeld, a description of every collection and most important more than 1200 images. For the first time ever, it’s possible to follow the development of the house under his leadership using carefully compiled catwalk photos in all details. Above all, early Lagerfeld designs have never been seen in such abundance – a unique opportunity for fashion experts and fans.
In addition, the spectacular sceneries of the Lagerfeld shows can be admired as well as the squad of Supermodels, which run regularly for him. There are catwalk photos of Claudia Schiffer, Linda Evangelista, Naomi Campbell and Stella Tennant, as well as Kate Moss, Cara Delevingne and Kendall Jenner.
