COCO NUT: Karl Lagerfeld, the ultimate expert on Gabrielle Chanel, was so enamored with Justine Picardie’s recent biography of the fashion legend that he created a series of original sketches for a new edition about to be published by Steidl. The designer and Picardie, a British journalist, are to host a cocktail and signing session for the launch of the French edition on March 24 at landmark Paris bookstore Galignani, one of Lagerfeld’s favorite haunts. A German edition is slated for release in April, with the English version to follow in June.

Harper Collins first published the book last year. It recounts in detail Chanel’s foray into London society during the Forties and Fifties, and her love affair with a German official. The Steidl version retails for 38 euros, or about $53 at current exchange.
