Karl Lagerfeld Used Acid And Fire To Make Prints For His New Photo Exhibit
Because Karl Lagerfeld doesn’t already have a lot on his plate, the designer’s latest project is a photo exhibit in Saint Moritz, Switzerland that features images of his muses etched onto glass panels.
“It was never done that way for screen-printed photographs on glass and burned in,” the designer told the paper.
“The effect is great for portraits, and I will do more and more of it…Nothing is more exciting than something new — a new material, a new spirit, a new technique, a new point of view, a new expression, a new feeling. That’s right for fashion and for photography.”
Or perhaps money. The paper reports that the price for a Lagerfeld photo has been on the rise, and that a triptych of glass panels would cost a buyer more than $401,600.
Well, thank goodness the internet exists. Here’s a free look at Lagerfeld’s newest photo exhibit:
