Hilary Alexander of the Telegraph sat down to chat with Karl Lagerfeld in his studio just days before the Haute Couture show (tomorrow!). In the interview, Karl charms us as is his way, and he tells us what he’s into: books on the origin of language, pretentious intellectual pursuits and Anna Calvi. Even better than hearing Uncle Karl wax poetic on luxury, is getting glimpses of the collection itself. I love the black chokers – so simple and chic! And those very simple, very flat, very pointy ballet flats need to be on my feet this spring!
