Karl Lagerfeld: A Line Through Cinema
To celebrate The Costume Institute’s spring 2023 exhibition, Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty, on view at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, Metrograph presents a series that honors Lagerfeld’s dazzling work as a costume designer, screening alongside several of Lagerfeld’s favorite films.
Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty (May 5-July 16) examines the designer’s unique working methodology, focusing on the late designer’s stylistic vocabulary as it was expressed in through lines—aesthetic and conceptual themes that appear time and again—in his fashions from the 1950s to his final collection in 2019.
