Photographer Robert Ferrer is best known for his dazzling fashion show photos and exclusive work for Vogue USA. In his latest book, Karl Lagerfeld Unseen: The Chanel Years, he invites us to discover one of fashion’s best-kept secrets: photographs of stolen moments in fashion’s greatest houses. Fairer opens his archives and takes us behind the scenes of Chanel, from the mid-1990s to the end of the 2000s.
The book’s 250 photographs show the energy of the preparations for the parades tangibly, just as they meticulously recreate the subtlety of the fittings in the intimacy of the famous salons – ivories and blacks – on rue Cambon. Texts signed by Lagerfeld’s closest collaborators and friends offer a fresh perspective on his creative process and reveal the genesis of the creations that became iconic.

Fashion is a living art, its clothes are all cultural, generational and identity symbols. With this publication, Mathilde Berthier and Céline Cabourg have chosen to approach their new work, Clapper-Sock and Corset: 60 Fashionable Objects.
In this 288-page book, the authors question shapes, circulation, and fashion symbols, by revisiting the grammar of 60 symbolic pieces. They explore different labels of class, gender, and generation, through concrete examples that provide a better understanding of the social and cultural issues of fashion.
Mathilde Berthier, journalist for fashion magazines such as Jalouse and Grazia, and Celine Cabourg, who specializes in writing long formats on social issues, offer an original and rigorous approach to fashion, based on their own experience and journalistic knowledge.
The book is an intelligent blend of history and sociology, which offers an in-depth reflection on issues of fashion over time. Readers will be able to discover iconic pieces such as the slipper stocking and corset, as well as other garments that have marked the history of fashion and have a special meaning for society.

French fashion brand Chloé celebrates its 70th anniversary with the release of its first anthology, Chloé – Défilés, in collaboration with the Maison. This publication provides a rare glimpse into one of the world’s most forward-looking fashion brands and highlights over 130 groundbreaking collections, from brand founder Gaby Aghion (with over 1,100 outfits worn by supermodels), to current Creative Director, Gabriela Hearst.
Organized chronologically, each new chapter in Chloe’s story is introduced through a biography of the creative director. The strengths of each collection are described in short texts analyzing their sources of inspiration, accompanied by carefully selected catwalk images. Provides a wealth of valuable information on the inspirations, technologies, and trends that have defined the brand’s history.
Since its inception in 1952, Chloe has become an iconic fashion brand, offering luxury ready-to-wear based on simplicity and femininity. The designers who succeeded each other within the House contributed to shaping the bohemian chic style that marked the history of fashion. Karl Lagerfeld, who joined Chloé in 1964 as a freelance designer before taking sole creative reins for the brand, fashioned retro fashion inspired by the 1920s and 1930s, in the spirit of freedom, decadence and elegance of the 70s. The following iconic directors – Martin Stepbon, Stella McCartney, Phoebe Philo, Claire Waight Keller and Natasha Ramsey-Levy – each brought their own special touch to the uniquely feminine essence of the Chloe woman.
