Fendi by Karl Lagerfeld


A sumptuous box filled with Lagerfeld's fashion drawings and sketches for Fendi

This elaborate object offers an as-yet-unseen insight into Karl Lagerfeld's working processes as artistic director for Fendi, a position he has remarkably held since 1965. Fendi by Karl Lagerfeld traces Lagerfeld's unparalleled career at the luxury Roman fashion house, where he has revolutionized the craft of fur (both technically and artistically), and introduced the successful ready-to-wear and accessory lines that have transformed Fendi into a global fashion brand. Through the decades we see how Lagerfeld incorporates eclectic influences--from Eskimo designs and medieval armor to kimonos and the world of informatics--into his own progressive vision.
Fendi by Karl Lagerfeld includes a sketch pad of 130 of Lagerfeld's fashion drawings (those given to the Fendi ateliers to enable them to construct the garments, and selected from an archive of over 35,000), a pad of his logo designs for the house, along with booklets of exclusive interviews with the designer, a poster and a USB key containing his short films--all packaged in a custom-made wooden case modeled on the box of oil pastels which invariably graces Lagerfeld's working desk. Essential for all Lagerfeld and Fendi devotees, Fendi by Karl Lagerfeld illustrates the evolution of contemporary fashion over the past half-century.

The world has lost a legend in Karl Lagerfeld (1933–2019)

We will miss Karl Lagerfeld, who died yesterday at the age of 85. One of the most influential and recognizable figures in haute couture of the last half-century, Lagerfeld was also a voracious book collector, publisher and photographer. We have been honored to carry many books published under his own imprint, 7L, and many books of his own work, published by Steidl. For a proper Obituary and a slideshow of Lagerfeld’s work, continue to the New York Times. > > To see all books on our list, in or out of print, continue to his monograph page. > > Featured image is reproduced from Fendi by Karl Lagerfeld, a limited edition compendium of, among other things, Lagerfeld’s sketches for the Italian luxury brand where he served as artistic director from 1965 until his death on February 19, 2019. continue to blog
