Disney+ planning French series on fashion icon Karl Lagerfeld

Disney+ has greenlit a new series on the life and career of fashion icon Karl Lagerfeld. ‘Kaiser Karl’ will explore the life and career of the German designer, who was creative director of the French fashion house Chanel from 1983 until his death in 2019.

The show, plans for which Disney EMEA President Jan Koeppen unveiled at the Series Mania TV festival in Lille on Tuesday, will be shot in France and tell the story of the German designer’s phenomenal rise to the top of the French and global fashion scene.

Lagerfeld, a feature of the fashion world for decades with his signature white hair, black sunglasses, and high, starched collars, was creative director of the French fashion house Chanel from 1983 until his death in 2019. He was also the creative director of the Italian fur and leather goods fashion house Fendi, and had his own, eponymous, fashion label.

The Disney+ series, Kaiser Karl, will start in the 1970s when Lagerfeld was just beginning to break into the French fashion scene.
