Yep, this is really happening. Here is Karl Lagerfeld in a commercial for Volkswagen "Style," a special stylish add-on package for VW Golf and Polo models that includes lightweight alloy rims, fog lamps, and tinted privacy glass, Racked is reporting. In the 30 second spot, the Kaiser as photographer seems to mutter under his breath something about how stylish the cars are and is surprised that they are German. Vas!? We're in Deutschland!?
We Joined Karl Lagerfeld's 'Kult' and 'Karlified' Our Favorite Fashion Peeps - Take a Look
Net-a-Porter is seriously hyping Karl Lagerfeld's new masstige collection, Karl, which will debut exclusively on their site on January 25. Today they've launched a microsite and app dedicated, as they say in the release, "to all things KARL." They are fast and loose with the k-supplanting, encouraging you to become a member of 'Karl's kult' which grants access to exclusive images of the collection. There's also a Karl app, where users can play a Pac-Man like game where you gobble up Karl heads and a "Karlified" function where you can upload a photo of yourself and then "Karlify" it by posting Karl's hair, collars, and sunglasses on your mug. We decided to have a little fun with the Karlify part of the app and made over our favorite fashion people (and one kat) Karl-style. Take a look.
