Kaiser Karl: after Balenciaga, Disney is interested in Karl Lagerfeld

It’s the current trend on Disney+. The firm with big ears continues series on fashion and cult creators. Karl Lagerfeld aka Kaiser Karl will soon be entitled to his biopic series.

After Cristóbal Balenciaga on Balenciaga announced on January 19, another great designer will be entitled to his series on Disney+, and not the least, since it is Karl Lagerfeld, himself.

It will tell the rise of Kaiser Karl, Lagerfeld's nickname and the title of the series, in the world of Parisian haute couture in the 1970s. The series, which does not yet have a broadcast date, will focus more precisely on the year 1972: when Karl Lagerfeld, 38 years old, aspired to become the most recognized French couturier. However, at the time, Yves Saint Laurent, protégé of Pierre Bergé, was the undisputed figure of fashion. Rivalry, ego conflicts and decadence will be there…

The casting is more than attractive since it brings together the German actor Daniel Brühl (Karl Lagerfeld), Arnaud Valois (Yves Saint Laurent), Alex Lutz (Pierre Bergé) and Agnès Jaoui (Gaby Aghion).
