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 multiple eras.

Filled with more than 600 photographs plus an essay by fashion writer Patrick Mauriès, the book offers an unrivaled overview of the house of Chanel as seen through the eyes—and lens—of Karl Lagerfeld himself.

Organized chronologically, the photographs highlight fashion superstars including Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista, and Kate Moss in such glamorous locations as Coco Chanel’s Paris apartment, the French Riviera, and Rodeo Drive.

When Karl Lagerfeld was appointed to the helm of the then-sleepy fashion house Chanel in 1983, he set out to radically reinvent its image—not only through bold collections, but also by shooting the house’s campaigns himself. Lagerfeld’s photographs breathed life into the brand.

His campaigns spanned the house’s collections—luxurious haute couture, ready-to-wear, cruise, accessories—and established Lagerfeld as a sought-after fashion photographer.
