Karl Lagerfeld - Karl Lagerfeld Loves Fashionable Paris

Karl Lagerfeld's favourite shop is Colette in Paris.

The Chanel designer - who was born in Hamburg, Germany, but now spends most of his time in the French capital - loves the city for its shopping opportunities, especially the department store renowned for its trendy clothing.

He said: "My favourite shop is Colette on Rue Saint-Honore. For jewellery I go to Lydia Courteille on Rue Saint-Honore and for books Galignani on Rue De Rivoli. For clothes I shop at Dior Homme."

The 77-year-old sartorialist has a particular affinity with Paris - renowned as one of the world's most fashionable cities - and thinks it is incomparable to any other place on the globe.

He added to Stylist magazine: "In Paris I walk in the streets like peasants walk in the village where they are born. There is something in the air.

"Who doesn't love Paris? You cannot compare it to any other city. Don't ask me why but that is the way it is. I have houses in the south of France, Vermont and Monte Carlo but I never go there. I like houses for the sake of having houses, but in Paris I am most at ease."

Despite his love of spending money on expensive homes and clothes, Karl recently professed to thinking design can be good even if it is done cheaply.

He said: "Sure, high fashion can expensive because of the materials and the level of craftsmanship, but design should be good on every price level - and that's what the high street does so well. Today, you don't have to have loads of money to be well dressed."
