Karl Lagerfeld and Choupette as Cartoons in His New Collection
Yes, the word’s out: Karl Lagerfeld will launch a new collection featuring himself and Choupette in cartoon version.
We already know that Lagerfeld is a big fan of two things in life beside fashion: cartoons and his beloved cat, Choupette.
And what he loves even more is to take a comic approach to his own persona. I think beside all the robots, toys and teddy bears in his likeness, we all remember the launching of the Barbie doll dressed like Lagerfeld from Fall 2014.
The doll created a complete madness at the Paris Fashion Week and then went to shake off the internet, too. Net-a-Porter had 999 dolls available for $200 each and they sold out almost instantly.
Now, of course they are reselling on eBay, but one piece of that Karl-mania will cost you anywhere between $900 and $3,500.
But now, Lagerfeld’s taking everything to another level. A more professional one to be more precise.
The designer hired for the new collection French artist Tiffany Cooper to design a capsule collection. Get ready to hang Lagerfeld himself in your closet because this collection is bringing clothing and accessories featuring illustrations of the Kaiser and his cat, Choupette.
But as I was saying before, Lagerfeld loves to take a comic approach to his persona and he’s already proven it to us.
It first came the video game starring Lagerfeld as a Tokidoki cartoon and you had to take his signature sunglasses off and then later came the cartoon version of Choupette that appeared in a commercial for the “Monster Choupette” collection.
And if that didn’t convinced you yet, the master even held a competition on his website, called of course “Karltoon” and it became a huge gallery of 170 comic strips featuring his image.
Anyways, one thing is certain: there is no one better to be turned into a cartoon than Karl Lagerfeld. And it makes everybody happy, especially himself.
And now with the collaboration with the talented artist Tiffany Cooper, we’re expecting to see a killer new collection!
The good news is we don’t have to wait that much anymore, the collection will be launched on April 1 at the glamorous Colette Paris and then it will be distributed further to Lagerfeld’s stores the following days.
