KARL: Succession, Karl Lagerfeld at Sotheby's
A two-volume sales catalogue of Karl Lagerfeld's collection at Sotheby's, December 2021.
Sotheby's: For the last twenty years of his life, it was contemporary design by figures such as Mark Newson, Martin Szekely and Ronan and Erwan Bouroullec, with whom he created a new futuristic interior at the dawn of the 3rd millennium. His last residence in Louveciennes was unexpectedly decorated in a style relating to Germany in the 1920s, with furniture designed by Bruno Paul and posters from early 20th century German advertising.
The sales also include numerous lots featuring Karl Lagerfeld – from his portrait by Takashi Murakami to Tokidoki dolls – as well as the designer's personal items; these include bowls adorned with the image of his cat Choupette, a Jeff Koons Balloon Venus, three Rolls Royces, the iconic leather Mitaines that he wore constantly for the last 20 years, and a selection of suit jackets by Dior, Saint Laurent, KL, Comme des Garçons and Martin Margiela.
2 Volumes, December 2021.
