Becoming Karl Lagerfeld | Preview (Disney+)

In 1972, Karl Lagerfeld (Daniel Brühl) is 38 and not yet wearing his iconic hairstyle. He is a ready-to-wear designer, unknown to the general public.



While he meets and falls in love with the sultry Jacques de Bascher (Théodore Pellerin), an ambitious and troubling young dandy, the most mysterious of fashion designers dares to take on his friend (and rival) Yves Saint Laurent (Arnaud Valois), a genius of haute couture backed by the redoubtable businessman Pierre Bergé (Alex Lutz).

 



Becoming Karl Lagerfeld plunges us into the heart of the 70s, in Paris, Monaco and Rome, to follow the formidable blossoming of this complex and iconic personality of Parisian couture, already driven by the ambition to become the Emperor of fashion.

 

Between glamour and clashes of egos, grandiose parties and destructive passions, discover the story of Karl before Lagerfeld. 





A story told for the first time on screen and adapted from the bestseller "Kaiser Karl" by Raphaëlle Bacqué (published by Albin Michel) that brings together a star-studded cast.

 

The series also highlights the fashion and cultural personalities who rubbed shoulders with Karl Lagerfeld at the time. Jeanne Damas, fashion designer and actress in "La Sincérité" and "Rock'n Roll", lends her features to Paloma Picasso, and singer-songwriter and model Claire Laffut to those of Loulou de La Falaise.



Highly anticipated 6-episode Original drama series “Becoming Karl Lagerfeld” (previously “Kaiser Karl”), produced by Gaumont and Jour Premier, will premiere all episodes on June 7, 2024, exclusively on Disney+.
