The best-selling Chanel Catwalk was the first book to gather every Chanel collection ever created by Karl Lagerfeld in a single volume - a unique opportunity to chart the development of one of the world's most influential fashion brands and discover rarely seen collections.
Now fully updated (with twenty-two new collections) and concluding with Lagerfeld's final collection for the house, the book will be a lasting tribute to Karl Lagerfeld's Chanel. This definitive publication opens with a concise history of Karl Lagerfeld's time at Chanel and a brief biographical profile of the designer. It goes on to explore the collections themselves, organized chronologically.
Each collection is introduced by a short text unveiling its influences and highlights, and illustrated with carefully curated catwalk images, showcasing hundreds of spectacular clothes, details, accessories, beauty looks and set designs - and of course the top fashion models who wore them on the runway. A rich reference section, including an extensive index, concludes the book.
