Chanel: the first book to gather every Chanel collection ever created by Karl Lagerfeld in a single volume. Now fully updated to include Lagerfeld’s final collections for the house and those of his right-hand and successor, Virginie Viard, this revised edition includes twenty-eight new collections.
Louis Vuitton: This definitive publication opens with a concise history of the house, followed by brief biographical profiles of Marc Jacobs, the first creative director 1998-2014, and Nicolas Ghesqui, who helms the brand today, before exploring the collections themselves, organized chronologically. Each collection is introduced by a short text unveiling its influences, highlights and is 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, from Naomi Campbell and Gisele to Kate Moss and Cara Delevingne. A rich reference section, including an extensive index, concludes the book.
Dior: The first comprehensive overview of the legendary house of Dior, from its founding in 1947 to today, featuring over 180 collections presented through original catwalk photography.
Versace: This definitive publication opens with a concise history of the house, followed by brief biographical profiles of Gianni Versace and Donatella Versace, before exploring the collections themselves, organized chronologically.
Chloe: The first comprehensive overview of Chloé’s collections was presented through catwalk photography and published in collaboration with Chloé to celebrate the house’s 70th anniversary in 2022. Founded by Egyptian-born Gaby Aghion in 1952, Chloé pioneered luxury ready-to-wear that was all about ease and femininity, offering an elegant Haute bohemian style for the modern, liberated Parisienne. Resolutely contemporary, the house spotted and hired a young Karl Lagerfeld as early as the 1960s: he stayed for over two decades, achieving fame and recognition worldwide through his Chloé work before Stella McCartney (and her then assistant Phoebe Philo) succeeded him straight out of fashion school.
