Karl Lagerfeld has been the guest editor for this month’s issue of Marie Claire Spain, that celebrates its 25th Anniversary. Happy Birthday Marie Claire! :)
The issue is filled with lots of articles about Karl, a very interesting interview, and a great selection of his work as photographer. Diane Kruger, Claudia Schiffer, Vanessa Paradis… His usual muses. They tell the anecdote of how he began to photograph the collections and ad campaigns. Twenty years ago, he saw the photos of his collection on a magazine and he thought they were awful (he probably said it aloud), and his friend Eric Pfrunder, artistic director of Chanel, encouraged him to take the photos himself. That’s how Karl Lagerfeld began his career as photographer.
The content revolves around Gabrielle Chanel style, black and white, and Karl’s personality. Here you have some of my favourite photos from the magazine, all taken by Karl except for the editorials. The issue is already on the newsstands.
PS: The issue comes with a very nice tote bag!
