Karl Lagerfeld’s Monokini Returns

For a forthcoming biography of the famed 70s fashion illustrator Antonio Lopez (Rizzoli), authors Mauricio and Roger Padilha—who’ve previously penned a similar monograph on Stephen Sprouse—have been posting teaser images on Facebook, many of them never seen before. The whole gang’s there, not just Lagerfeld, but Bill Cunningham, Antonio’s partner Juan Ramos, muse Jane Forth, Grace Jones, Jerry Hall, et al.
