Information about the artwork:  Astrid in 7 portraits made in 2012 marks the extension of a long collaboration between Simon, Karl Lagerfeld and Maison Chanel. Years devoted to the study of Classical Painting shine through in this Series. He captures, in the manner of the Dutch master Vermeer, the emerging star of the cinema Astrid Bergès Frisbey. Each of these portraits illustrates the celebrated Little Black Jacket Chanel, freely and brilliantly reinterpreted, until it becomes the astonishing and extravagant headdress of ""Astrid n ° 7"", emblematic of this series. At the same time avant-garde of Contemporary Fashion and yet infinitely Classic.
