To designers like us, these books provide endless inspiration. The influence of these fashion icons still make an impact, bringing an element of sophistication and innovative design to interior spaces. From the fabrics to the finishes, runway moments often find their way into the upholstery, wall covering and color choices of current interior design.
Fashion lovers will delight in flipping the pages of these beautiful books, which infuse any space with color, shape and distinct personality.
Below we share a few favorites from the collection.
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.
This particular book is a favorite of mine thanks to a recent experience with the brand and the incredible work of Karl Lagerfeld.
During a recent trip to New York City, I was fortunate enough to tour The Lagerfeld exhibit at the Costume Institute at The Met and found it incredibly inspiring. As a designer, being able to learn more about his complex creative process and enjoy behind the scenes moments, as well as viewing some of his most iconic work, was a highlight of my trip.
But back to the book! Filled with more than 600 photographs, plus an essay by fashion writer Patrick Mauriès, this book (See cover below) offers an unrivaled overview of the house of Chanel as seen through the eyes—and lens—of Karl Lagerfeld himself.
