Chanel Catwalk: The Complete Collections
The best-selling Chanel Catwalk was 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. This definitive publication features a concise history of Karl Lagerfeld and Virginie Viard's time at Chanel as well as brief biographical profiles of each designer. The collections (from Haute Couture and Ready-to-Wear to Cruise and Metier d'arts) are organized chronologically. Each one is introduced by a short text unveiling its influences and highlights and 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. A rich reference section, including an extensive index, concludes the book.
