Sometimes the Kaiser amazes me. And he doesn’t even have to speak in order to achieve that! Besides having to draw so many collections per season and photograph so many shoots (not only for his maisons but also for various fashion magazines), he has time to read and to sketch.

It’s a Karl Lagerfeld authentic drawing for Justine Picardie‘s Chanel Sa Vie book that’s scheduled to appear next week (the French edition, the German is scheduled for April and the English edition for June).
This is, of course, a luxury edition of a book already published in 2010 by Justine Picardie (which you can hear talk and explain her book right after the jump; also, you can buy the first edition of Chanel, Sa Vie here) (via)
