On this day in fashion history

2007, Karl Lagerfeld agreed to shoot a Dior Homme campaign despite his position as creative director of rival brand Chanel. Kris Van Assche, who replaced Hedi Slimane at the head of the label in March that year, revealed to WWD that Lagerfeld was on board to photograph the ad campaign for his debut Dior Homme collection..

Karl had always been an outspoken fan of the label – even accrediting his weight loss to it: “I suddenly wanted to dress differently, to wear clothes designed by Hedi Slimane,” he said at the time. “But these fashions, modelled by very, very slim boys – and not men my age – required me to lose at least 40kg.”
