Publisher's description: 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 DVDs of 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.
