On January 21, Shanghai’s 18Gallery will open Karl Lagerfeld: Photographs, a rare collection of images produced by Lagerfeld and his former muse-turned-photographer Adnan Taletovich. Shot over the course of the 90s between Paris and Monte Carlo, the black and white prints emit a range of emotions ranging from melancholy and seductive to valiant and impish, with supermodels Helena Christensen, Patricia Velasquez and Linda Evangelista making playful cameos throughout the series. Through extreme close-ups and blurry silhouettes, Lagerfeld and Taletovich create a mysterious aura of romance, classicism and sophistication. -Christina Mannatt
