The transphotographiques exhibition in lille

This year, the 7th edition of the Lille Transphotographiques photography festival is dedicated to the passionate and sometimes intense relationship between fashion and photography. “No one but Karl Lagerfeld could represent these two worlds so perfectly,” says Olivier Spillebout, the curator of the exhibition. “He is certainly the most emblematic person in fashion; everyone knows his work as a fashion designer, but not everyone knows him as a photographer. Karl Lagerfeld lets us into his intimate life, the result of a long-term project, a collaboration of top model Brad Kroenig and a designer behind the camera.” This “One Man Shown” shows the many faces of Brad’s masculine identity, as he poses as a “James Dean” cowboy or a contemporary playboy or in a chic tuxedo… A range of identities, which serves as a canvas for Karl Lagerfeld’s exploration of different photographic genres.

Cruise collection after party

A midnight swim in Miami

The Cruise Show after party was supposed to take place in a club on Lincoln Road, but no one wanted to abandon the Raleigh Hotel where the show had taken place. Karl Lagerfeld’s guests, a mix of superstars from the American fashion press, Miami jet setters in head-to-toe CHANEL and iconic actresses including Anna Mouglalis, Diane Kruger and Joana Preiss, all seemed thrilled about this tropical fashion break. The night ended in the pool with a midnight swim.

“Miami is a timeless and free place. With the sea and the sun all year long, it can only be relaxing. The perfect place to show a cruise collection,” declared Karl Lagerfeld. For this season, the designer imagined a collection of chic but laid-back looks: pastel colors, a lot of summery white as well as impeccable black, vinyl and tweed jackets, striped swimsuits, silk satin flares, belted jackets in beige toweling, large and voluptuous sweaters, a combination of structured and voluminous shapes and a collection of fun and luxurious jewelry. Over 300 international celebrities were invited to the early evening show. Among those in the front row: actresses Diane Kruger and Anna Mouglalis, the young Zoe Kravitz and tennis star Anna Kournikova – without forgetting Anna Wintour, of course.
