Karl Lagerfeld is heading to the library for inspiration. The iconic Chanel designer has partnered with his publisher Steidl to create a perfume inspired by the smell of books called Paper Passion. An addicted book-lover who owns around 300,000 books, Lagerfeld readily confesses that he cannot refrain from buying more books. His passion has even pushed him to be the owner of a book store and a publishing house in Paris located at 7, rue de Lille, both known under the name 7L. Steidl and Lagerfeld plan to open another bookstore in New York City soon.
