Karl Largerfeld is being honored in an innovative exhibit at Bundeskunsthalle Bonn museum in Germany. We may like to poke fun at the cat loving designer but the fashion veteran has some 50 years of experience in the industry having built not only at his own label but also worked hard at Chanel and Fendi. Titled “Modemethode” the exhibition was partially created by paper art studio Wanda Barcelona whose paper palace will house of Largerfeld’s famous Chanel designs. The dresses will be displayed on disc-like white pedestals. The exhibition is a tribute to the designer’s creative process and will also include a recreation of Lagerfield’s desk, covered in his books and drawings.
Meanwhile, the display will be set up against a backdrop of more than 40,000 paper cutout suspended from the ceiling making it resemble a white paper fairyland. On the ground, columns created from paper sketchpads will charm visitors with their enchanting flower-like details. The 3,400 sq. foot hall will be a paper paradise, a perfect setting for Largerfeld’s beautiful clothes.
The display will be available for viewing until the end of September.
