The feather plastron

For the Paris-Londres collection, the house of Desrues made this spectacular golden feathers plastron. It is with his unique Métiers d'Art collection that Karl Lagerfeld is able to preserve and promote traditional know-how, using these increasingly rare artisans to enhance his creation.
