Simon Procter, Karl Lagerfeld’s photographer, is providing a glimpse into the iconic fashion designer’s backstage work. The exhibition features exclusive images capturing the backstage ambience of one of the most iconic and well-known fashion houses.

Large-scale photographs are displayed throughout the beautiful lobby, bringing Largerfield’s perfectly curated shows to life. Some of the images combine multiple photographs, resulting in a one-of-a-kind depiction of the designer’s life, work, and legacy.

Procter displays glimpses of Largerfeld’s time in New York as well as his famous Fall-Winter 2017/18 runway show that featured the Chanel Rocket. Many famous faces can be recognised in the pieces, including Kaia Gerber, Lily-Rose Depp and Cara Delvigne.
