Vogue Paris Christmas Issue 2016
The outspoken designer has worked alongside his model muse Lily-Rose Depp and the Vogue Paris editorial team to create the special double issue. Inside, Karl reminisces on one of the longest and most illustrious careers in fashion, spotlights his leading ladies and shares his greatest reads, with – of course – a special appearance from Choupette.
The issue also has a collector’s cover photographed by close friend Hedi Slimane.
“Having Karl Lagerfeld as guest editor-in-chief of Vogue is a first, even though, with a singularly long career and a dazzling talent spanning fashion, photography, design and literature, he has been a major figure for the magazine for years. With a look as iconic as Elvis’, a razor-sharp wit and legions of fans, he is undoubtedly the most emblematic fashion figure of our times. We think we know what Karl is all about, but this issue proves that he still has the power to surprise us,” writes Emmanuelle Alt, Vogue Paris editor-in-chief.
