It be­gins with a sketch. The hum­ble pen­cil in the grips of a cre­ative is the en­trance to a world of end­less pos­si­bil­ity. “To me, draw­ing is like breath­ing and writ­ing,” says Karl Lager­feld, fash­ion de­signer, artist and pho­tog­ra­pher. “Th­ese are things that al­most re­lax me.”

Lager­feld has teamed up with fel­low Ger­man na­tive, Faber-Castell, on a lim­it­ededi­tion col­lec­tion of artist tools in­clud­ing wa­ter­colour pen­cils, fine­lin­ers, pas­tels and pen brushes, all housed in a black lac­quered beech wood box. Only 2,500 of the el­e­gant Karl­box were pro­duced, with just 50 sets avail­able in Sin­ga­pore for S$4,588 at Tangs, Tang Plaza. www.colours-in-black.com ≠
