Disney Orders New Series About Karl Lagerfeld

03/09/2021

Karl Lagerfeld changed the way we approach and see fashion. He was one of the most innovative designers in the industry and worked as creative director for Chanel, Fendi, and his namesake brand at the same time—not to mention so many others throughout his career. His deathDS in 2019 was deeply felt not only by fashion professionals but by the entire world.

Fortunately, Lagerfeld’s legacy will be reincarnated in an upcoming series. Disney has just announced Karl Kaiser, a new TV show that will recount the German designer’s journey and its little-known details, starting in the summer of 1972 through to his success at Chanel.

The new series is based on a biography written by Raphaëlle Bacqué, who investigated some of the most important behind-the-scenes moments throughout the designer’s life. Of course, the program will also investigate his personal life and relationships, such as her romance with Jacques de Bascher, as well as his rivalry with Yves Saint Laurent.

The lead actor has yet to be released, but Ewan McGregor’s portrayal of Roy Halston Frowick in the recent Netflix series Halston encourages images of a dreamy cast. Pre-production is already underway, and, in addition to the author of the biography, screenwriters Isaure Pisani-Ferry and Jennifer Have have signed onto the project which is expected to hit the small screen in 2022.

In an official statement, Disney Vice President of Programming Pauline Dauvin said: “We were immediately seduced by the idea of an adaptation of Bacqué’s biography, which will mark the first collaboration between Disney and Gaumont on a French original show. The series shows a unique moment of transformation in the fashion industry in France in the ’70s, embodied by an icon with multiple metamorphoses, Karl Lagerfeld.”
