Italian Artist Chronicles Fashion Faves In Art
Palombo's second book of illustrations, which comes out next year features a variety of his illustrations. "Karl's Journey" shows fashion designer, Karl Lagerfeld, in his signature white ponytail, blacked-out sunglasses and trim silhouette touring around Paris before boarding alien ship (I always suspected he was not of this earth). The images, in the gallery below, have a childlike sweetness to them, capturing both Lagerfeld's severity but also his mysterious charm. As Palombo says on his blog: "If you are feeling disappointed in the world and can no longer find the will to dream or unleash your imagination, don't be sad, just turn your attention to the delightful Karl Lagerfeld and he will be able to show you more than one way to do so."
