"Admiring and ferocious" - France Inter "This first biography, fed by many first-rate witnesses... we laugh, we shudder, we admire." - Elle On the last morning of his life, Karl Lagerfeld's only companion was Sebastien, his bodyguard and right-hand man. The king of fashion insisted on being cremated, along with his universally recognisable 'gear' - the dark glasses and high starched collar that served as a bastion for his secrets. It is only now that witnesses have begun to talk. Thus emerges the story of Karl Lagerfeld: his father's past in the heart of wartime Germany, his rivalry with Yves Saint Laurent (enflamed by his only love, Jacques de Bascher) and the networks he forged with the biggest luxury manufacturers in the world as he compiled his vast fortune. Truly an unparalleled icon in the history of fashion, Lagerfeld's legacy lives on today.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Karl Lagerfeld's personal life is examined in a new book by Raphaelle Bacque.' -- The Daily Mail. 'Mr. Lagerfeld represented the designer of the future: multitasking, collaborative, a celebrity. He gladly fed and fed off the dizzying cycle of consumption.' --The New York Times."The result is a detailed, sometimes shocking, sometimes sad, sometimes hilarious look at a fashion genius" -- Cellophaneland; "In 2019, the fashion world lost one of its visionaries. In this bestselling intimate biography, recently translated into English, French investigative journalist Raphaelle Bacque interviews several of Karl Lagerfeld's confidants, colleagues and employers." -- Daniella Saunders, Country & Town House;
