For our second annual #BoF500 ‘Polymaths & Multitaskers’ special print edition, BoF meets fashion’s consummate multitasker, Karl Lagerfeld, who manages to balance his work for Chanel, Fendi and his own brand, as well as a steady stream of photography and illustration commissions, by cultivating a zen-like detachment from his work.
Today, BoF brings you an exclusive first look at Louis Vuitton’s ‘Celebrating Monogram’ collaboration with six art and design legends: Karl Lagerfeld, Frank Gehry, Cindy Sherman, Marc Newson, Christian Louboutin and Rei Kawakubo, each of whom have re-imagined the fashion powerhouse’s iconic monogram.
