Venue: Main Gallery, 21-31 Old Bailey Street, Central, Hong Kong

Schoeni Art Gallery is proud to present art photos by Karl Lagerfeld in collaboration with Baystar Hong Kong Photo Production. The charity exhibition will feature a limited collection of 45 art photos produced by Karl Lagerfeld and Adnan Taletovich – a professional fashion model and photographer – for the very first time in Hong Kong and Asia. Adnan Taletovich has collaborated with Karl Lagerfeld in numerous photo shoots for Karl Lagerfeld’s men’s clothing campaign and “Photo KL” perfume. This rare photograph collection not only features familiar faces of world renowned models such as Linda Evangelista, Helena Christensen and Patricia Velasquez, but also reflects the artistic style and mastery of a great designer and artist – Karl Lagerfeld.

Many of the images in the collection were shot at Karl Lagerfeld’s residences in Paris and Monte Carlo, in the 1990’s. The images embrace an extravagant mystery quality with ultimate elegance and sophistication, which echoes the power and poise so distinctive of Karl. In one of the street scenes work, the production team managed to get a street closed for shooting in the Le Marais district in Paris. The almost theatrical scene aims to relive 19th century with Kristen McMenamy dressed in the typical androgynous style. A few of the works in the collection also reveal off-scene jovial moments captured through the eyes of Karl Lagerfeld, including one with Helena Christensen playfully pulling off Adnan Taletovich’s towel.
