The Peak of Collabs? Karl Lagerfeld & A Snow Globe
A few weeks ago Karl Lagerfeld announced the launch of his new brand and said that because he’d now be focusing on a contemporary line, a luxury brand, a website, flagship stores, a men’s collection and pop-up shops under his own name, he’d have less time to work on all of the collaborations (Magnum, Volvo, Orrefors) he’s such a fan of.
So last week, when Florence + the Machine mentioned that Lagerfeld would design the cover for their limited edition vinyl of “Shake It Out” we thought, “Hey, if he’s going to spend time on an extra-curricular activity, this is certainly worth it.” Then Fossil announced that the prolific designer would be making watches for them. And then today, Sephora mentioned that Karl’s whipped up a limited edition snow globe to go with the capsule collection of cosmetics he made for the chain. And by “design a snow globe” we mean he stood a Karl-like figure under a shower of gold flakes.
We totally want one.
