This candid portrait for a young, monocled Karl Lagerfeld was taken in 1973, at a time when he was producing ambitious collections for Chloé. Both men forged up a lasting friendship, connecting over their shared love of photography. Lagerfeld was a great admirer and collector of Newton's work - recently noting during an interview with Aperture magazine; "I collect Helmut Newton, tons of them. Very beautiful and huge ones. The last thing I received from him was a beautiful photo of David Lynch and Isabella Rossellini." Image is on a 20"x 24" silver gelatin sheet with the image measuring 16"x 21" and displays the beautiful finish silver gelatin prints are revered for.

This photograph is part of a collection of vintage prints were gifted to Newton’s agent Norman Solomon, in recognition of the work he had carried out in promoting Newton’s “Private Property” series of exhibitions in 1985. The print comes with a Certificate of Authenticity signed by Norman Solomon. The ownership rights of this print are supported by an original agreement with Newton in 1984, and supplemented by a further agreement with The Helmut Newton Estate in 2012. They have been stored in conservation condition and are excellent examples of vintage Helmut Newton photography.
