Lagerfeld Confidential takes you behind the sunglass-clad facade and into the everyday world of fashion’s most iconic designer, the master of re-invention, Karl Lagerfeld. Award-winning French director Roldolphe Marconi’s unique and unobtrusive style of portraiture, exposes Lagerfeld’s trademark: an all-consuming creative restlessness and insatiable curiosity about the world of art, history, politics, music and fashion. The decisively unsentimental designer not only accepts but thrives upon the fickle and frivolous nature of his industry where attachment equates to stagnation – fashion is a moment in time that must be ever-changing.
"Engaging, frequently amusing and occasionally moving documentary about one of fashion's most fascinating figures."
