According to a Page Six “spy,” Karl Lagefeld and Kanye West met up for a lunch date yesterday at the Mercer Hotel in SoHo. (Karl is in town to shoot Chanel’s spring 2013 campaign and speak at WWD’s retail summit. Kanye is here…to perform at the Samsung Galaxy Note II launch party).
Anyway here’s apparently what went down at this intimate lunch: The Kaiser and Yeezy were reportedly “in a deep conversation” and then “appeared to be getting devices out to discuss design ideas.”
While we think it’s more likely Karl was just showing Kanye some adorable new Choupette pix, who knows really? Maybe there’s a Kanye/Karl kollab in the works? After all, Kanye’s line is stalled and we know he has a proclivity for double “K”s.
Either way, it was a happy day in fashion land to see Lagerfeld and Kanye getting along because apparently, they used to have beef. When Kanye and Jay-Z were recording their Watch the Throne record at the Mercer, Lagerfeld, who is a regular guest at the hotel, reportedly complained about the noise their entourage made. We’re glad to see they’ve patched things up.
