Karl Lagerfeld's enigmatic sketches might finally become something you can emulate. The designer, who is known for his love of sketching and colouring, is working with Faber-Castell on a limited-edition box of colour pencils, sketching supplies and tools. Hear that? That's the rustle of the colouring books you need to get back on.

The collection is encased in a Chinese wedding-inspired chest, which is the cherry on top of a very impressive cake. The price, while jaw-dropping, is not unexpected for such a rare and long overdue collaboration; be ready to part with at least €2,500 (approx. RM11,525) to call the box your own.

Dubbed the Karlbox, the collection is expected to go on sale at Karl Lagerfeld boutiques and Faber-Castell outlets on 1 September before rolling out to other specialty stores on 19 September. No news yet as to whether the Karlbox is coming to Malaysia, but what are friends who live abroad for?
