photography, dance, music, reading,
theatre and visual arts.

The Reading Room

With monthly encounters in the library-studio,
experience the spirit of contemporary conversations
with public figures.

according to Karl Lagerfeld. They will share books
from their core library: personal books,
selected books from Karl Lagerfeld’s library
and new releases from the bookshop.
