An ambivalent character, king of autofiction, Karl Lagerfeld was the first narrator of his long life, spent skillfully reinventing himself to never look back, towards a past that was difficult to contemplate. Inspired creator, gifted with immense culture, spendthrift to the point of ruin, exaggerated in his ways, avid worker, asexual and hygienist, king of barbs and jokes, ultrasensitive and arrogant, Karl Lagerfeld has had several lives. He gained weight, lost weight, rejuvenated, drowning his melancholy in work after the death of his only love, Jacques de Bascher, an unscrupulous dandy who was exactly his opposite and who also aroused the devouring passion of Yves Saint Laurent, helping to break the friendship between the two couturiers.

This biography recounts the multiple existences of an extraordinary man and, through them, almost a century of fashion, which the designer helped revolutionize. This work is the result of a long investigation that began with two exclusive interviews granted to the author by Lagerfeld himself and enriched by the testimonies of those who were close to him as well as numerous personalities: Caroline of Monaco, Bernard and Hélène Arnault, Silvia Fendi, Bruno Pavlovsky, Tom Ford, Alessandro Michele, Valentino, Carine Roitfeld, Claudia Schiffer, Ines de La Fressange, Linda Evangelista, Tadao Ando, ​​Fran Lebowitz...
