Lagerfeld Confidential | 2007
This is the first time fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld has agreed to let anyone document his life. Fascinated by the "man behind the sunglasses," Rodolphe Marconi allows us to see beyond the "Karl Lagerfeld mystery." The confrontation between the "image" created by Karl Lagerfeld and the image hidden behind the glasses questions the modern media: with the raw and sensational "reality image" on one hand, and the artificial, supernatural fashion image on the other. Today Karl Lagerfeld is part of a worldwide heritage. He is revealed as an intellectual insomniac with a thirst for literature, films and paintings; a fan of Art Deco and contemporary art; a lover of aesthetics in the extreme as well as luxury; and an amiable man behind the acerbic tongue.
