These photos, shot by the legendary Karl Lagerfeld, were taken in and as a homage to the diversity of modern day women with a historical twist.

With a theme which hints back to the early A.D Era all the way to international wear from around the world, these looks and recognizable female figures gives these blast-from-the-past outer-wear the up-to-date spin to piece every look together.
