A new exhibition of Karl Lagerfeld’s photography just opened in Zurich

Just a few days after his passing, Swiss gallery Gmurzynska will display the late designer’s photographs in an impromptu show

On Tuesday morning, the fashion industry was hit with the tragic news of Karl Lagerfeld’s death. While fashion remained at the forefront of his five-decade career, the German designer also frequently expressed his passion for photography.

Now, just three days after his death, Galerie Gmurzynska has managed to compile over 20 years of Lagerfeld’s work into a retrospective-style exhibition, which opened yesterday in Zurich.

Entitled Homage to Karl Lagerfeld, 30 Years of Exhibitions, the exhibition will showcase everything from his celebrity portraits of the likes of Nicole Kidman, Cara DelevingneLinda Evangelista et al, all the way through to his more recent street-style shots. The designer has a long-standing relationship with the gallery, meaning images from his very fist collaboration with Gmurzynska, in the late 90s, will also be on show.    

Karl Lagerfeld: 30 Years of Exhibitions will run until May at Galerie Gmurzynska and will be complemented with a gallery publication as a homage to the life and work of Karl Lagerfeld. Book your flights now.
