Karl Lagerfeld’s Sketches from the ’60s Go Under the Hammer

During the 60’s, Karl Lagerfeld drew the sketches for the House of Tiziani, and now some works from his tenure at this label will go under the hammer at Palm Beach Modern Auctions on January 11. Half a century ago, a Rome-based Tiziani designed film costumes and wardrobe for Elizabeth Taylor and other celebrities. Lagerfeld’s designs at Tiziani stood out mostly because of the details he added to his sketches, such as earrings, flowing hems, trims and makeup.

Rico Baca, auctioneer and co-owner of the West Palm Beach auction house, hopes that the Lagerfeld signature and the attitude of the women seen in his sketches will attract buyers to the upcoming auction, which will feature an archive of more than 300 sketches of Tiziani designs.

Though the sketches are likely to fetch a fine amount at the upcoming auction, Lagerfeld doesn’t deem them nearly as valuable. Actually, if they were still in his possession, he’d have discarded them years ago, since he throws everything away. In 2007, he told The New Yorker: “The most important piece of furniture in a house is the garbage can! I keep no archives of my own, no sketches, no photos, no clothes – nothing! I am supposed to do, I’m not supposed to remember!”
