Karl Lagerfeld – Parallel Contrasts: Photography – Books – Fashion
Closes: 11 May 2014
For over 50 years, Karl Lagerfeld has enjoyed great success as a fashion designer. As Creative Director for CHANEL (since 1981) and FENDI (since 1965) he has become one of the most important players in the international fashion world, but has also gained fame as an astute and sharp-tongued aphorist of the everyday. During this period, Lagerfeld has also worked for other fashion houses and launched sensational collections under his own name. Since 1975, alongside fashion, he has been designing jewellery, furniture, musical instruments, books and toys and, in cooperation with musicians, directors and architects, opera and theatre costumes, stage sets and architecture. Karl Lagerfeld is more of a snapshot than a retrospective, showing the man’s seemingly boundless creative energy in all its facets: fashion, drawings and photographs, films and books, product design, advertising.

The inaugural exhibition of the newly renovated Costume Institute examines the career of the legendary twentieth-century Anglo-American couturier Charles James (1906–1978). Charles James: Beyond Fashion explores James’s design process, focusing on his use of sculptural, scientific, and mathematical approaches to construct revolutionary ball gowns and innovative tailoring that continue to influence designers today.
