In his youth, Dorian Gray had his portrait painted, and because the painting wonderfully preserved a carefree moment, Gray begged for a trade-off: the painting would age and he himself would remain young and handsome forever. That’s exactly what happened until one day, in a rage, he stabbed the canvas and died. What remained was a flawless portrait of youth.

Karl Lagerfeld, one of the greatest protagonists of the fashion scene, makes his contribution — not completely free of irony — to the subject of the transitory nature of beauty.
