“admiring and ferocious” – France Inter

“This primary biography, fed by means of many first-fee witnesses… we snort, we shudder, we recognize.” – Elle

On the ultimate morning of his lifestyles, Karl Lagerfeld’s simplest better half used to be Sébastien, his bodyguard and proper-hand guy. The king of style insisted on being cremated, along side his universally recognizable ‘equipment’ – the darkish glasses and top starched collar that served as a bastion for his secrets and techniques. It’s only now that witnesses have started to speak.

Thus emerges the tale of Karl Lagerfeld: his father’s previous within the center of wartime Germany, his competition with Yves Saint Laurent (enflamed by means of his simplest love, Jacques de Bascher) and the networks he cast with the most important luxurious producers on the earth as he compiled his huge fortune. Really an extraordinary icon within the historical past of style, Lagerfeld’s legacy lives on lately.
