A curated exhibit highlighting Karl Lagerfeld’s most iconic Chanel shows has just launched at Le Royal Monceau – Raffles Paris, just in time for Paris Fashion Week. The new exhibit pays tribute to Lagerfeld’s incomparable legacy, highlighting his monumental achievements at Chanel through the lens of acclaimed British photographer Simon Proctor.

The tribute aligns with the launch of Proctor’s Rizzoli book Lagerfeld, The Chanel Shows, a stunning compilation of a decade of Karl Lagerfeld’s most legendary runways for Chanel; an invaluable resource for fashion lovers and Lagerfeld fans. Simon Proctor, considered to be one of the most outstanding contemporary photographers of our time, relays the energy of these incredible shows through a deliberate mix of re-created photographic artworks as well as candid images of Lagerfeld and the models backstage.  

The exhibit showcases some of the iconic designer's most legendary runways shows for Chanel at Paris' Grand Palais.

Lagerfeld, The Chanel Shows exhibit takes place at Le Royal Monceau – Raffles Paris' art gallery, and features a curated edit of Proctor’s rare, unpublished photographs and artworks which demonstrate the creative evolution of Lagerfeld’s work at Chanel. For those wishing to take a piece of the magic home, signed copies of Proctor’s Rizzoli book are exclusively available for sale at the Parisian hotel’s bookstore.

Lagerfeld, The Chanel Shows tribute exhibit is open to the public and will run until November 15, 2019 at Le Royal Monceau – Raffles Paris.
