AT HOME WITH KARL

Bored of tedious Instagram-thirst-trap interior decor burning your eyes? Escape into the highly curated world of committed aesthete Karl Lagerfeld in a new book that documents his life in houses, from Monaco to Paris, Biarritz, Rome and Hamburg. Each residence was painstakingly fashioned entirely of its own uncompromising vision, from his starkly minimalist 200-year-old apartment in Quai Voltaire — ‘like floating in your own spaceship over a very civilised past’ — to the extravagantly ornate 18th-century mansion Hotel Pozzo di Borgo (right, recently the scene for Marni and Victoria Beckham’s Paris Fashion Week shows). Not to mention his complete embrace of Memphis style in his Gio Ponti-designed block in Monaco; which included Masanori Umeda’s boxing ring as well as the Carlton bookcase. Heaven.

Karl Lagerfeld: A Life in Houses’, by Patrick Mauriès and Marie Kalt (£75; Thames & Hudson)

LOUNGE LIKE JAGGER

Pulling on that scraggy old pandemic tracksuit is nothing short of depressing. Elevate your at-home experience with Olivia von Halle’s new limited-edition collection that takes a cue from the illustrations of Mary Blair, one of Disney’s first female artists. This is no Cinderella merch, though. Artful robes and pyjamas with heavily embellished lion head motif feature alongside weighty silk velvet slips and co-ordinating slippers. ‘My all-time style icons are Diana Vreeland, Daphne Guinness and Coco Chanel,’ says von Halle. ‘Recently it’s Bianca Jagger — her iconic wedding suit inspired this season’s new cocktail pyjama, the Jagger.’ From £125 (oliviavonhalle.com)
