Karl Lagerfeld Does Le Petit Larousse 2009

  • Pin it

The Kaiser will feature a very important cover this year. The cover of Le Petit Larousse Illustré 2009.

His love for books is notorious. I don’t know if that was the reason he got involved in this Larousse enterprise (after all, I imagine he didn’t got into the security vest campaign because he liked yellow), but the sure thing is that he’ll dress up the mini Larousse. Black covers, check. Karl on, check. La Semeuse inside, check. (half naked, but who cares it’s a drawing of a naked busted woman on a dictionary cover? It’s Lagerfeld! So chic!) .

Petit Larousse Illustre 2005 Christian LacroixHave to be honest here – Le petit Larousse Illustre in the bookshelf above my desk when I was in school. Worked with it almost every day. How am I supposed to let my children use the petit Larousse (if needed) with a naked woman on the cover? I’m not trying to be the prude one, I’m just saying he should’ve toned down a bit. And dress that Semeuse un peu! It’s a dictionary, quand même!

Just for the record – Christian Lacroix had his own cover back in 2005. Which one do you prefer? (via)
