When the news about Karl Lagerfeld doing a perfume that smelled like books emerged it felt completely legit and plausible, given Der Kaiser’s notorious love for the written word.
However, days later, Steidl issued a statement that would clear Karl Lagerfeld of any implications in the Paper Passion perfume making. So their relationship only goes as far as co-publishing books and owning book stores. It could’ve been worse, right? I guess we’ll just have to wait and see if der Kaiser‘s love for smelling chocolate will actually translate into a perfume, since he recently admitted “I would love to have a perfume based on chocolate.”? Now that would be interesting! Until then, let’s admire Karl Lagerfeld’s sculpture in chocolate of (who else?) Baptiste Giabiconi! Feel free to comment! (I would!) (via 1, 2, 3)
