Captured by Karl
As the Karl Lagerfeld photo exhibition opens this weekend, we bring you a sneak peek at the images. The charity exhibit by Chanel's creative guru is showcased in Asia for the first time
This Saturday, Art Photos by Karl Lagerfeld, a limited collection of 30 images, debuts the Schoeni Art Gallery. This is the first time Lagerfeld's photos will be exhibited in Hong Kong and Asia. The images were produced by Kaiser Karl himself and Adnan Taletovich, a professional fashion model and photographer who was worked with Lagerfeld on previous collections.
Some familiar faces pepper the exhibition: Linda Evangelista, Helena Christensen and Patricia Velsaquez are a few, and many images were shot at Lagerfeld's home in Paris and Monte Carlo in the 1990s - some reflecting the height of Lagerfeld’s distinctive style and others fun jovial, capturing candid and intimate moments through his eyes.
Prices for the photos range from HK$6,000-18,000, with proceeds donated to the Hong Kong Society for the Protection of Children, and special photos printed on gold and silver paper will also be sold during the silent auction happening on opening night. Get a sneak preview of some of the photos below.
