Karl Lagerfeld by Alfons Kaiser Pdf

The definitive biography of Karl Lagerfeld—the last iconic fashion designer—now in paperback! “It starts with me and it ends with me.” —Karl Lagerfeld Karl Lagerfeld stylized himself into a living logo and a myth of the fashion world. In Karl Lagerfeld: A Life in Fashion, journalist Alfons Kaiser, who knew Lagerfeld personally for many years, introduces readers to the public and private life of the charismatic fashion designer. Kaiser explores the many eras of Lagerfeld’s life: the youthful outsider in the north German flatlands; the urbane genius in Paris; the tireless draftsman; the enthusiastic photographer; the passionate book collector; and the disciplined Prussian workaholic. What is behind this larger-than-life figure who, despite a massively public persona, kept his own life story a secret? Drawing from many previously untapped sources, this biography investigates the man behind the persona: the precocious boy who preferred to draw in the attic rather than play with his peers; the son who quarreled with his parents but never got away from them; Yves Saint Laurent’s competitor, whom he outshone in the end; the brother, uncle, and friend—and finally, the partner of Jacques de Bascher, the great love of his life.

Diet by Karl Lagerfeld,Jean-Claude Houdret Pdf

"One fine morning I woke up and decided that I was no longer happy with my physique. Although I was overweight, I had gotten along fine and had no health problems. But I suddenly wanted to dress differently, to wear clothes designed by Hedi Slimane….But these fashions, modeled by very, very slim boys—and not men of my age—required me to lose at least eighty pounds....I did not think that it was possible to lose so much weight in one year....[But] in fact, it took me exactly thirteen months." —Karl Lagerfeld "Karl Lagerfeld’s case is spectacular as it shows how it is possible, through determination and willpower, to return to a harmonious balance even when excess weight is of a long-standing, deeply ingrained nature. I hope that many will be inspired by the example of the slimmed-down, elegant, and indefatigable Karl Lagerfeld to lose either the few pounds they feel should be sacrificed for their happiness or the several dozen pounds that are detrimental to their survival." —Dr. Jean-Claude Houdret The Karl Lagerfeld Diet, developed exclusively for Karl Lagerfeld by Dr. Jean-Claude Houdret, reveals the secret techniques of Lagerfeld’s amazing weight loss regimen. By first addressing the mental and behavioral causes of varying degrees of obesity, this book provides valuable insights and useful tips for preparing the mind and developing the willpower necessary to commit to this diet. It then provides one hundred twenty gourmet recipes devised by Dr. Houdret, which cover breakfast, soups, starters and salads, eggs, seafood and fish, meat, pasta and pizza, vegetables, sauces, and desserts. Topping it off, Lagerfeld provides his personal tips for staying slim, attractive, and fit with additional chapters on skin care procedures, cosmetic treatments and surgery, general medical care, stress management, giving up tobacco, sleep, and exercise. Both an instructional guide and a motivational coach,The Karl Lagerfeld Dietis the ultimate accessory for healthy living.

Chanel: The Karl Lagerfeld Campaigns by Patrick Mauriès Pdf

When Karl Lagerfeld was appointed to the helm of the then-sleepy fashion house Chanel in 1983, he set out to radically reinvent its image--not only through bold collections, but also by shooting the house's campaigns himself. Lagerfeld's photographs breathed life into the brand. Now, his campaigns span the house's collections--luxurious haute couture, ready-to-wear, cruise, accessories--and have established Lagerfeld as a sought-after fashion photographer. Organized chronologically, Chanel: The Karl Lagerfeld Campaigns includes a carefully curated selection of photographs that showcase hundreds of spectacular clothes worn by the top fashion models and personalities of each era. Women including Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista, and Kate Moss are photographed in glamorous locations such as Coco Chanel's Paris apartment, the French Riviera, and Rodeo Drive. Filled with more than 600 photographs, plus an essay by fashion writer Patrick Mauriès, the book offers an unrivaled overview of the house of Chanel as seen through the eyes--and lens--of Karl Lagerfeld himself.

The World According to Karl by Jean-Christophe Napias,Sandrine Gulbenkian Pdf

Karl Lagerfeld’s legendary maxims in a fashionable gift format. Karl Lagerfeld was a modern master of couture. He was also legendarily outspoken—his wise and surprising statements popped up like offbeat news flashes. This compact collection of quotations pays homage to the renowned éminence grise of the fashion world. Lagerfeld’s pronouncements on fashion, women, art, politics, love, and life—high and low—are famously oracular, seized upon by fashionistas, acolytes, and sages around the world. Created with the full approval of the late designer, this cornucopia of Lagerfeld’s maxims is required reading for all of us as we negotiate the trickiest curves of modern life. Cultivated, unpredictable, provocative, and sometimes shocking, Lagerfeld’s bons mots are impossible to ignore.

This investigation into Karl Lagerfeld’s (1933–2019) artistry explores his extraordinary sixty-five-year career, from the designs for Chloé and Fendi in the 1960s and 1970s to his celebrated leadership in the 1980s and beyond at Chanel and his own label. Inspired by the “line of beauty” theorized by eighteenth-century English painter William Hogarth, this dazzling publication pursues the straight and serpentine “lines” and their intersections in Lagerfeld’s work as a means of understanding his unique creative process.

I'll Have What She's Having by Rebecca Harrington Pdf

A hilarious look at the eating habits of the fit and famous--from Gwyneth's goji berry and quail egg concoctions to Jackie Kennedy's baked potato and Beluga caviar regimen--Rebecca Harrington leaves no cabbage soup unstirred in her wickedly funny, wildly absurd quest to diet like the stars. Elizabeth Taylor mixed cottage cheese and sour cream; Madonna subsisted on "sea vegetables;" and Marilyn Monroe drank raw eggs whipped with warm milk. Where there is a Hollywood starlet offering nutritional advice, there is a diet Rebecca Harrington is willing to try. Facing a harrowing mix of fainting spells, pimples, and salmonella, Harrington tracks down illegal haggis to imitate Pippa Middleton, paces her apartment until the wee hours drinking ten Diet Cokes à la Karl Lagerfeld, and attempts something forbiddingly known as the "Salt Water Flush" to channel her inner Beyoncé. Rebecca Harrington risks kitchen fires and mysterious face rashes, all in the name of diet journalism. Taking cues from noted beauty icons like Posh Spice (alkaline!), Dolly Parton (Velveeta!), Sophia Loren (pasta!) and Cameron Diaz (savory oatmeal!), I'll Have What She's Having is completely surprising, occasionally unappetizing, and always outrageously funny.

Casa Malaparte by Karl Lagerfeld Pdf

"A house like me, " were the words poet Curzio Malaparte used to describe his villa on Capri. There are only a few buildings which illustrate antique beauty and mystical charm like Casa Malaparte. In this book, Karl Lagerfeld has photographed this most elegiac of structures. Lagerfeld worked for five days in November 1997 to produce these photographs of architecture and nature. He used a special technique to reproduce his pictures -- Polaroid transfers on a particular paper. The results are stunning. The first part of the book shows the perfect integration of the house into the environment, and the second part documents the interior decoration and furniture of the house.

Room Service by Karl Lagerfeld,Devendra Banhart,Johan Renck Pdf

Right from the beginning, Karl Lagerfeld conceived Room Service as a multi-track matrix: a series of photos, a short film and an unusual version of the song "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend," all collected in one deluxe volume. The project began when Lagerfeld was commissioned to create a campaign for Dom Perignon. The storyline he created was an ultra-contemporary fairy tale that recounted an irresistible attraction between two solitary and seductive hedonists whose paths cross at one of Paris's finest hotels--the woman played by Eva Herzigova, and the man by Brad Kroenig. Lagerfeld shot photographs of the stranger-couple's erotic encounter, and Johan Renck shot the film, all in the luxurious George V hotel. Says Lagerfeld, "Johan Renck is a music video genius. He liked the story and put it into action. He followed the script even more carefully than I could have done with still photos." For the song, Lagerfeld chose neo-folk singer/songwriter Devendra Banhart. "After Marilyn, who could have sung this song? A woman? I find Devendra's low-high, ambiguous voice amazing and absolutely perfect. His version of 'Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend' is magnificent, unique and daring." This deluxe volume features tritone printing, an exclusive vinyl single of Banhart's performance and a DVD of Renck's film.

Humorously themed chapters cover diet, beauty, healthcare, fashion tips, secret loves and pet hates for the pampered cat, along with observations and advice from Madame Horn (her vet), and Madame Françoise (her lady’s maid). Photographs taken by Karl himself include his Sacred Cat of Burma on fashion shoots with Laetitia Casta and Linda Evangelista.

Chanel Shopping Center by Karl Lagerfeld Pdf

Chanel's fashion shows are always unexpected, but with the set of Karl Lagerfeld's most recent Fall-Winter 2014/15 Prêt-à-Porter collection for the house, the designer seems to have finally outdone himself. The concept of the catwalk was born anew as the "Chanel Shopping Center," where models jostled with one another as they browsed shelves and placed items in their shopping trolleys. This was, of course, no normal supermarket but a spectacular ironic reinterpretation of Chanel 's beloved codes, where supermarket produce and packaging were re-designed according to Lagerfeld's wit and whim. There were thousands of items to behold including Mont Cambon wine, Mademoiselle Privé doormats, tweed energy drinks, Coco Flakes (to be eaten with no more than Lait de Coco), Paris-Dallas ketchup, lion-shaped pasta, as well as bottled water labeled "Eau de CHANEL No 0." The visual vocabulary of the supermarket equally informed Lagerfeld's collection: from chain shopping baskets, vacuum-packed handbags, bottletop and padlock-shaped jewelry, to iridescent outfits with shoplifter-sized pockets. This book preserves the Chanel Shopping Center in print, and is playfully styled as a mail order catalogue displaying all items seemingly for purchase-but only while stocks last.

Escape from Circumstances by Karl Lagerfeld Pdf

Escape from Circumstances can be described as a "school of seeing". In the past Karl Lagerfeld's photographic work has been characterised by the following subjects: landscape, body-parts and architecture. These topics are reflected in some of his books, in Partipris and Casa Malaparte, to name but a few. This study seems to be the logical consequence of this pursuit and the key to his current creative power. In full-bleed plates Lagerfeld presents the different forms of nature, alongside elements of the human body. The human body stands as a "model" for various types of buildings, which are, in an ideal case, in harmony with the human being and nature. The arrangement of these pictures illustrate the anthropomorphic form in its natural and artificial environments.

Karl: No Regrets by Patrick Hourcade Pdf

Step inside the private realm of the great designer Karl Lagerfeld through the eyes of his fellow artist and close friend Patrick Hourcade. The artist Patrick Hourcade met Karl Lagerfeld in 1976. A friendship that will last more than twenty years is immediately born between the two men, strengthened by their shared passion for eighteenth-century arts. After studying art history, Patrick Hourcade begins working with the creative team at Vogue Paris, while at the same time introducing Karl to his beloved specialty, the arts of the Enlightenment. From then on, he would accompany the great fashion designer on all of his lavish acquisitions--mansions, decors, and works of art. The two would build a magnificent universe together, refined and sometimes overly extravagant, especially at the Grand-Champ chateau in Brittany, the Hotel Pozzo di Borgo in Paris, or at La Vigie, a villa on the French Riviera. Patrick Hourcade tells the story of this aesthetic connection, through previously unpublished documents and a unique biography of Karl Lagerfeld, where he is seen in all of his splendor as well as his weaknesses. This intimate story also crosses paths with the colorful characters who populated the life of the great designer, including Anna Piaggi and Francine Crescent, Laure de Beauvau and Liliane de Rothschild, Pierre Bergé and Yves Saint Laurent, Gilles Defour, Vincent Darré, Guy Bourdin, and Andrée Putnam, and, most importantly, his mother Elisabeth and Jacques de Bascher--his two loves of his life.
