In 1963, American designer Evans Richards opened a fashion house in Rome under the name Tiziani, employing Karl Lagerfeld as his fellow couturier in the firm. Their first collection was a huge success, and within a short time, faithful clients included Elizabeth Taylor, Doris Duke, Gina Lollobrigida, Principessa Borghese and many others. Mr. Lagerfeld remained with the firm until 1969.
Palm Beach Modern Auctions first offered a selection of sketches and memorabilia from the Tiziani Estate in a January 2014 sale which gained worldwide press and a blog post from Choupette (Karl Lagerfeld's Birman cat). Additional pieces from the same collection have recently become available, and we are pleased to offer them today.
