Lagerfeld: 10 best sets
Stylist, photographer, set designer. Genial, eclectic, reserved. Visionary, eccentric, perfectionist. All this and much more was Karl Lagerfeld. An unique mind that has gone through the world of fashion and design, leaving an indelible mark. Black, like the color that was absolutely his favourite. Black, like the emptiness left in the fashion industry.
In this article we want to retrace 10 of his most beautiful sets. We want to remember him through images, rather than through words. Because we all know who Karl Lagerfed was. But not everyone knows how much Karl Lagerfeld has contributed in making the combination Architecture-Fashion special and inimitable. A voice always attentive to the incessant search for beauty. Because it is beauty that saves us from habit. It is the beauty we carry within us, within our mind, that can change the world.
10.Revolution on the Runway
The Grand Palais turns into a Parisian street. Women dressed in Chanel clothes, come together in a protest in favour of women’s rights. A real feminist revolution.
Bright colors, perfect scenography, great communicative power. Karl Lagerfeld uses the catwalk as an expedient to deal with strong, important themes. Tenth place for this roaring parade!

The Grand Palais is transformed into a Supermarket. Here the models put on show the different looks and the different ways of understanding the act of shopping. From casual clothing up to the elegant one. All, of course, signed Chanel.

Chanel simulates an apocalyptic scenario at the Grand Palais. The models walk between an audience characterized by the presence of rubble and a decayed stage. A stage on which a gash opens up on another reality. A reality that transports us and makes us fly with the mind.
Neutral colors and breathtaking views. White, black and gray for clothes, characterized by drama and indestructible resistance. Sixth place for this apocalyptic parade!
