Set to take place from May 5 to July 16, Karl Lagerfeld: A Line of Beauty will offer attendees the opportunity to come up close and personal with some of the late designer’s most iconic collections dating back to the ‘50s up until his passing with 150 garments on display, accompanied by several of his complex sketches.
