Karl Lagerfeld, who at 75 is the most famous fashion designer in the world, is looking for a new male muse. In an airport, while flipping through an Italian magazine, he spots a face—why not him?
Karl and Baptiste will be together from that point on.
Among the old guard surrounding “Kaiser Karl,” the eruption of this new favorite onto the scene kindles tensions. Does he have the beauty of an angel or a demon? Public opinion and the media are electrified with questions about the relationship. What are they to each other? What does Lagerfeld, an all-powerful aesthete whose slightest desire resounds as an order, want from Baptiste? No journalist or biographer can pierce through his armor of mystery.
Today, still grieving Karl’s death but ready to reveal all with passion and sincerity and as much humor as nostalgia, Baptiste Giabiconi offers the most legitimate portrait of a legendary creator. Through this book he promised to Karl, he recalls the backstage world of fashion, the empire of design houses, and a world that most of us can only dream of, but he hopes above all to leave an enduring trace of the love shared between an artist at the end of his life and a young man.
