Product description


"If you are a Karl fan you need to run and not walk to get your hands on this book. If you are not a fan but have great respect for his accomplishments, you need to read this book." New York Journal of Books

"Covering his thoughts on everything from life and fashion to children, the book takes its audience into the mind of one of fashion's most eccentric minds." The Daily Beast

"If anyone in the style realm comes close to being as quirkily quotable, it's designer Karl Lagerfeld, whose assorted barbs and quips are compiled in The World According to Karl..." -Los Angeles Times

"This amusing collection of Karl-isms...it's impossible to choose just one, which is why this is a must-read." -Teen Vogue
