The unlikely duo Claudia Schiffer and Karl Lagerfeld undoubtedly influenced the international fashion world throughout the 90’s. Shortly after German Vogue put her pregnant and naked Claudia Schiffer on its June cover, the venerable German picture newsweekly Stern is dedicating an entire special edition of Stern Fotografie (its 60th) to the eccentric pair. Titled “Claudia & Karl”, the latest issue of Stern’s quarterly special dedicated to photography features six ads, including one by Chanel.
And a glossy book is also scheduled for print on the occasion of their 20-year work relationship.
The 96-page special shows Claudia Schiffer playing different characters straight out of Lagerfeld’s vivid imagination. Claudia & Karl will be available in newsstands on June 8 for the hefty cover price of 18 euros.
Previous issues of Stern Fotografie have been dedicated to the works of master lensmen such as Herb Ritts, Mario Testino and Peter Lindbergh, amongst others.
