Byzantine fragments by Karl Lagerfeld

For CHANEL pre-fall 2011 karl lagerferld used Byzantine fragments from church of San Vitale in Ravenna. The UNESCO-protected monument is a treasure trove of glittering glass and enamel mosaics, which attracted the lens of Karl Lagerfeld in 2010. Portraying richly-dressed figures laden with jewels, these images bear witness to the extravagance of Constantinople and the splendour of its iconography.
