This investigation into the art of Karl Lagerfeld (1933–2019) explores his extraordinary sixty-five-year career, from designs for Chloé and Fendi in the 1960s and 1970s to his celebrated leadership in the 1980s and beyond at Chanel and your own brand. Inspired by the "line of beauty" theorized by the 18th-century English painter William Hogarth, this stunning publication pursues the straight and serpentine "lines" and their intersections in Lagerfeld's work as a means of understanding his unique creative process.
Andrew Bolton is the Wendy Yu Curator in Charge of the Costume Institute at The Metropolitan Museum of Art.
