Lagerfeld: The Chanel Shows
Good Morning Mr. Lagerfeld showcases ten years of Chanel’s most influential fashion shows shot by English photographer and artist Simon Procter. Over the past decade fashion shows have evolved into monumental productions, requiring a level of sophistication and creativity on a par with the clothes they present. This has been most evident in Paris at the now legendary runways of Karl Lagerfeld for Chanel. To capture the energy of the events Procter recreates the epic sets – from a luscious forest scene to a rocket launch – combining multiple photographs to illustrate in a single image the many perspectives of the intense but fleeting spectacle. The resulting artworks are held in collections worldwide and published in this book for the first time alongside never-before-seen candid images of Lagerfeld and the models preparing backstage. Good Morning Mr. Lagerfeld offers the reader an unparalleled look into the wide-ranging creativity of today’s most iconic designer making this an invaluable resource for all lovers of fashion and especially admirers of Chanel.
