He is one of the most recognisable men on the planet, yet one knows little about the person, about the man behind the façade that is Karl Lagerfeld. What is he like? What drives him?

His self-stylization, in which secrecy plays an important part, puts him alongside icons such as Andy Warhol and Jean Cocteau. His carefully crafted image is a marketing tool but also a representation of himself: “There is a glass wall between myself and the rest of the world.”

This intimate portrait of Karl Lagerfeld will break through this glass wall and show the person behind the iconic façade.
