For his knowledge and undisputed talent was called the Kaiser of fashion. Lagerfeld’s successful career began in the 1950s when he moved to Paris, he continued his studies and became known through the International Wool Secretariat, an award he won in the category of coats. Thanks to this award he made his way into the fashion scene, working as an assistant to Pierre Balmain, later joined the Italian firm Fendi and the Chanel house, which saved him from oblivion in a few years. After consolidating his career at Fendi and Chanel he founded his firm, which not only reaffirmed his talent but also made him one of the most important references in fashion

Early Years

Born into a upper-middle-class family, Lagerfeld studied at a private school in his hometown. During this period of training, he was noted for his intelligence and scathing personality, which was influenced by the character of his mother Elisabeth Bahlmann a cultured violinist daughter of the German politician, Karl Bahlmann; his father, Otto Lagerfeld was a renowned businessman, a descendant of a family of bankers, who earned his fortune by introducing evaporated milk in Germany.

While growing up in postwar Hamburg, Lagerfeld, longed for the splendor of the 80s of the 19th century, in which glamor and class flourished. When he finished primary school in Hamburg, he decided to move to France, where he continued his academic and artistic training. He attended Lycée Montaigne in Paris, an institution where he studied Drawing and History. However, he left school at sixteen.

Professional career

After settling in Paris he began to move in the Parisian fashion scene, designing and sketching his creations. In 1954, Karl Lagerfeld participated in the International Wool Secretariat, a fashion contest in which outstanding designers participated, who were making their way into the European fashion scene as Yves Mathieu-Saint-Laurent, a young designer considered Lagerfeld’s rival, for his influence and talent. In the contest Saint-Laurent and Lagerfeld, they obtained the first position in the categories dressed and coats, respectively. Thanks to his triumph in the contest, Lagerfeld was hired as a junior assistant at Pierre Balmain, a renowned French firm, which at that time was seen as one of the most important sewing houses in the country. For this same period, his rival was hired by Dior, an event that accentuated the rivalry between young people.

Lagerfeld held the position of assistant at Pierre Balmain for about three years, as he got tired of not being able to shine in the firm with his work. As he mentioned in some interviews, he was not born to be an assistant; so he looked for a position more suited to his talent. After leaving Balmain, he was hired as creative director of House of Patou, a fashion house in which he designed numerous collections following Patou’s style. After a short time, he resigned and began collaborating with the firm Tiziani, for which he designed various garments. Some of the sketches of this period were auctioned by the firm in 2014.

In 1967, he was hired by Fendi, to work in the department of clothing, accessories and leather accessories, in which he worked most of his life. His stage in Fendi is one of the most outstanding of his career, in the course of this Lagerfeld, he revolutionized the way Fendi presented himself, included various eclectic influences such as Eskimo-inspired designs, medieval armor, and kimonos, all these applying his vision, which was well-received by critics of the fashion scene. During his years at Fendi, he introduced successful ready-to-use lines and styles, which made Fendi a global fashion brand.

After excelling at Fendi for almost two decades, he was contacted by Alan Wertheimer, president of the Chanel house, who offered him the position of creative director of the house; by this time Chanel was going through a hard moment, barely kept afloat with the sales of perfumes and some clothing, since Gabrielle’s death left the house uninspired and none of the designers hired in that period he had managed to recover the splendor and glamor that it had held for a long time. Taking into account the situation of the house, Lagerfeld considered the proposal as one of his biggest challenges, joined Chanel in 1983 and shortly after managed to consolidate the house again.

During the first years in the house, Lagerfeld, renewed the outdated style of Chanel, introducing appliques, sequins, and youth styles, without neglecting the elegance of the Chanel style. Starting the new millennium, Lagerfeld, decided to change his diet, losing 42 kilos in just one year, this feat was reported by him and his doctor in the bestseller The Karl Lagerfeld Diet (2004). With a new appearance he continued to design collections entire for Chanel and Fendi; per year he launched twelve collections, two for Fendi and ten with Chanel.

Yves Saint-Laurent Biography

Yves Mathieu Saint-Lauren (August 1, 1936 – June 1, 2008) He was born in Oran, Algeria. French designer considered one of the most prominent figures of haute couture in recent times with Karl Lagerfeld, Paco Rabanne, and Gianni Versace. He trained as a dressmaker in Paris at seventeen and made himself known by beating Karl Lagerfeld in the International Wool Secretariat contest, in the category of evening dresses in a beautiful dress that impressed all attendees. The popularity he had gained led him to get in touch with the renowned designer Christian Dior, with whom he worked until his death in 1957. Considered the natural heir of Dior, Saint-Laurent debuted with the Trapeze collection in 1958 and two years later he created his brand with his lover and friend Pierre Bergé.

FAMILY AND BEGINNINGS

Born into a wealthy family, Saint-Laurent had as his parents the renowned lawyer Charles Mathieu and his wife Lucienne Andrée Saint-Laurent, who at that time were established in French Algeria. He grew up with his two younger sisters enjoying the comforts his parents could provide. He received a careful academic training in his hometown, attending a school with a strong discipline, which deeply influenced his life. Interested from an early age in fashion and literature, Saint-Laurent avidly read fashion magazines such as Vogue and other literary classics.

Due to his particular personality and the sensitivity he showed, he suffered harassment from his classmates, who laughed when he saw him design and dress the dolls of his sisters and the puppets of the school. His mother, with whom he always had a special connection, quickly understood the interest of little Saint-Laurent, so he did not hesitate to support him and find a place where he could develop his artistic abilities. After taking lessons in clothing and pattern making, he moved to Paris, where he began his adventure in the fashion world with only seventeen years. Shortly after settling in the French capital, Saint-Laurent demonstrated his talent by attracting the attention of Vogue director Michel de Brunhoff, to whom he showed some of his first designs.

Fascinated by the young man’s talent, De Brunhoff decided to publish them in the magazine, thus making the designer’s apprentice known. Following the advice of De Brunhoff, Saint-Laurent entered la haute couture school, however, a short time later he got bored and stopped attending. Something impatient to start his career, Saint-Laurent appeared at the International Wool Secretariat contest, in the category of evening dresses with a cocktail dress outline, which impressed the jurors, who awarded him first place over the also recognized designer Karl Lagerfeld, who won first prize in the coat category.

This fact marked the beginning of one of the best-known rivalries in the fashion world, since then Lagerfeld and Saint-Laurent were in constant competition for the best design and support of the most relevant brands. In the early 1950s, De Brunhoff introduced Saint-Laurent to renowned French designer Christian Dior, who was immediately fascinated by the young man’s talent. From 1954, he began working with Dior, becoming his right hand until his death three years later. During these three years, he worked closely with Dior, presenting extravagant and sophisticated designs that were both criticized and admired by the great creator. The admiration and appreciation that Dior felt for his young disciple led him to be called my prince, nickname for which he was known for several years.

YVES SAINT-LAURENT’S CAREER

Left in charge of the Dior fashion house and considered the natural heir of the renowned designer, Saint-Laurent launched his first collection called Trapeze in 1958. Presented through a large parade in which important Parisian fashion figures were present, the Collection was praised by specialized critics. Among those attending the parade was Pierre Bergé, one of Dior’s friends, who later became a partner and lover of Saint-Laurent. At the beginning of the 1960s, he could not continue postponing his obligation with military service, so he had to leave his post in the firm and join the army.

After suffering a severe depression while serving, Saint-Laurent was released from the obligation thanks to Bergé’s influences. Again the fashion world, Saint-Laurent sued the firm, which was then under the command of Marc Bohan, for moral damages with the support of Bergé. With the compensation and investment money of Mack Robinson, he created his firm in 1961 and a year later he presented his first collection entitled Yves Saint-Laurent (1962).

Years later he launched the tuxedo, a design that marked the history of fashion becoming a classic and one of the most used pieces in prestigious ceremonies. With the tuxedo and his evening dresses, Saint-Laurent became one of the most relevant designers in the world of haute couture, standing out for his elegant and affordable style, designed for new generations.

In the course of the 1970s, he revolutionized women’s fashion with sophisticated costumes and dresses designed for mature women. Some of these were modeled by Catherine Deneuve, Marlene Dietrich, Sofia Loren, Farah Diba, and Elizabeth Taylor, who wore one of his designs at her wedding with Richard Burton. At this time he surprised his loyal spectators with the creation of women’s costumes and costumes with a marked androgynous style, with which he tried to create an equivalent to the male tuxedo. Always in search of a new milestone, Saint-Laurent introduced great changes in the feminine and masculine fashion of modern society, such as garments with bare backs, transparencies, and pantsuit, among others.

In those years, he swept the world of fashion with his perfume and the collection dedicated to the Second Empire, with which he obtained the title of king of fashion in Time magazine. His success was overshadowed by the depressive episodes he suffered, which led to Bergé leaving him in 1976. In the eighties he was recognized by the Metropolitan Museum and the Museum of Fine Arts, presenting his greatest creations. His fear of failure and episodes of depression began to affect him and isolate him from the world.

After being honored with the presentation of a retrospective parade of his 40 years of work, Saint-Laurent presented his last line. He retired from the company in 2002 and left Tom Ford in charge since then he stayed away from the fashion world. This prominent designer died on June 1, 2008, in Paris, at age 71.
