The Daily Mail has a good point.
So it was slightly surprising to see the 76-year-old leave his hotel in New York with a mountain of luggage which would be more suitable for the likes of Naomi Campbell or Mariah Carey. As a man who clearly sticks to what he likes, it was somewhat mind-boggling as to what could possibly be contained within the matching bespoke flight cases. Karl rarely strays from his trademark monochrome look, which he accessorises with fingerless leather gloves, sunglasses and stacked black heels. In 2007, and 2008 he could be seen wearing virtually the same outfit, save for a change in jewellery.

We love when Lagerfeld opens his drawers filled with white collars. And how about that peek the audience gets of his room, filled with rails and rails of black tailored coats? Amazing.
