Mr. Karl Lagerfeld's work as a photographer will open today at the Maison Europeenne de la Photographie. Quote from WWD: "As in fashion, the designer is propelled by the new, and said he is fascinated with techniques new and old, from resinotypes and Polaroid transfers to black-and-white images he hand-colors with Shu Uemura makeup. “Moving ahead is what I think is the most exciting, non?” he said. Lagerfeld first picked up a camera in 1987 when, frustrated with the images done for press kits at Chanel, someone suggested he do it himself. “Famous photographers like [Helmut] Newton didn’t do press kits then,” he shrugged."
Tara Subkoff resurrects Imitation of Christ:) so happy to hear that she is well again and on her feet to take up this Adorably cute/ cool collection IOC.
A new book about Marc Jacobs and his team is out (or coming soon)!!! "The Men & Women of Marc Jacobs" by Brian Bowen Smith. It's a photo essay featuring shots of over 150 employees which gives us the family album of the coolest "family" on the planet:)
