Karl Lagerfeld’s Fashion Drawings from Tiziani Archives Available With Palm Beach Modern AuctionsDec 09, 2021 12:00 EST
Karl Otto Lagerfeld was a German fashion designer and creative director renowned for his innovative designs and meticulous style statement. As a creative head of Fendi and Chanel, Lagerfeld breathed a new life into the fashion houses with his groundbreaking designs. In 1963, when the American designer Evans Richards set up Tiziani in Rome, he hired Lagerfeld as a freelance couturier. Their debut collection was immensely successful, and their loyal patrons included celebrities such as Doris Duke, Elizabeth Taylor, and Principessa Borghese. Karl Lagerfeld’s stint at Tiziani developed into a significant association in the business of fashion. Palm Beach Modern Auctions presents sketches derived from this momentous collaboration in an upcoming sale. The selection of sketches on offer includes Lagerfeld’s noteworthy fashion drawings and memorabilia from Tiziani’s archives.
The mixed-media drawings on heavy card stock more than exemplify Lagerfeld’s visualization of an outfit. These sketches illustrate the process of design and document specific notations to the production team. In many of his drawings, the couturier incorporated model names, samples of fabrics, and vital markings. Details of accessories, trims, accents, and eye makeup demonstrate Lagerfeld’s diligent approach to designing much like his own dressing sense. The available sketches show electric blue blouses, psychedelic dresses, and many other outfit combinations. To view the complete catalog and register to bid online, visit Bidsquare.
