Lagerfeld Confidential

3

“Fashion is ephemeral, dangerous and unfair,” is icon Karl Lagerfeld’s verdict on his globe-trotting, air-kissing world, captured here by Rodolphe Marconi. Shot in deeply unglamorous wobbly-cam, this intimate, amusing portrait only reveals about Kaiser Karl what the great image-maker chooses to show. Even his childhood anecdotes and off-the-cuff witticisms have a practiced polish. His restless, relentless schedule is a glossy grind, enlivened by fleeting A-list cameos.
