The artist Patrick Hourcade met Karl Lagerfeld in 1976, sparking a friendship that would last more than twenty years, strengthened by their shared passion for eighteenth-century art. Following his education in art history, Patrick Hourcade joined the creative team at Vogue Paris and, in parallel, he introduced Karl to the art of the Enlightenment, of which Hourcade is a fervent expert. From then on, he assisted the fashion designer with each of his lavish acquisitions-mansions, furniture, and works of art. The two built a magnificent universe together, refined and at times luxuriously extravagant. Patrick Hourcade recounts the story of their aesthetic complicity, through previously unpublished documents and a unique biography in which he reveals Karl Lagerfeld in all of his splendor as well as his weaknesses.
