about

The definitive biography of the last iconic fashion designer

“It starts with me and it ends with me."

Karl Lagerfeld stylized himself into a living logo and a myth of the fashion world.

In Karl Lagerfeld: A German in Paris, journalist Alfons Kaiser, who knew Lagerfeld personally for many years, introduces readers to the public and private life of the charismatic fashion designer. Kaiser explores the many eras of Lagerfeld's life: the youthful outsider in the north German flatlands; the urbane genius in Paris; the tireless draftsman; the enthusiastic photographer; the passionate book collector; and the disciplined Prussian workaholic. What is behind this larger-than-life figure who, despite a massively public persona, kept his own life story a secret? Drawing from many previously untapped sources, this biography investigates the man behind the persona: the precocious boy who preferred to draw in the attic than play with his peers; the son who quarreled with his parents but never got away from them; Yves Saint Laurent's competitor, whom he outshone in the end; the brother, uncle, friend—and finally the partner of Jacques de Bascher, the great love of his life.
Alfons Kaiser is an editor at the German newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung and is responsible for the section "Germany and the World," as well as for the monthly Frankfurter Allgemeine magazine. He prefers to write about fashion.
