The fantasy, a saga about a prince who is incognito as a white bear and falls in love with a peasant, was recently reprinted. Held at the newly updated Trevi Fountain, the show highlighted not only the national treasure but also Lagerfeld’s beautiful fairy tale-inspired fashions. The accompanying visuals are a sight to behold.
