This box has a small image of Karl Lagerfeld without sunglasses. Mr. Lagerfeld creates sketches of beautiful designs for the house Chanel. In this piece is a pamphlet that came with a Chanel product. The pamphlet is unfolded to show printed sketches that spell out C.H.A.N.E.L. The letter "L" sketch shows Karl's self-portrait wearing his famous sunglasses.
