For anyone who was around in 1987 *ahem* you may remember a three-part series, The Story of Fashion which was narrated by Karl Lagerfeld. The original was first screened on the A&E channel in the U.S. but will now be re-released on DVD. According to Cathy Horyn, the films "are still pretty interesting and informative, if dated in places. Of course, the designers look astonishingly young. Mr. Lagerfeld, without his many rings, discusses everything from French court clothes to Mary Quant."

Keep your eyes peeled for the box-set, priced at $49.99.
