Versus: Made in Venice

In 1971, Luchino Visconti took Thomas Mann novel ‘Death in Venice’, and developed an classic movie with Dirk Bogarde and Marisa Berenson leading the cast. Björn Andrèsen was casted as the beautiful ‘Tadzio’, the object of Gustav’s obsession, wearing a traditional school uniform while he was in a Venice resort with his family. This uniform was part of Karl Lagerfeld’s 2010 own obsession, while he dressed his favorite male model, Baptiste Giabiconi, in a similar uniform like Tadzio for Chanel Resort, a runway prepared at the same Venice beach in Italy.
