If you have eight minutes of down time today, do yourself a favor and watch this video. In it, Karl Lagerfeld interviews himself about, well, himsel
From designing dozens (yes, dozens) of collections every year, to photographing his own campaigns, to creating a cool new beauty line, and raising one of the most adorable kittens we've ever seen, there really doesn't seem to be much Karl Largefeld can't do. Except, maybe, sleep. The latest in the never-ending series of Karl exploits is this video lookbook for his new, lower priced line Karl by Karl Lagerfeld, where the designer tries his hand at working the turntables. Obviously, Karl does a pretty great job, and the visual effects are pretty cool too. "It's a new mix," the designer intones at the end. Indeed.
We've been seeing bits and pieces of the Karl by Karl Lagerfeld collection online--we even got to style a model using pieces from the collection--but it finally (finally) goes on sale today at Net-a-Porter, starting at 10 a.m. Pieces range in price from $50 for a canvas tote to just over $1,000 for leather pieces. The Cut and Vogue UK both got a hold of the full look book modeled by Lagerfeld muse Saskia de Brauw. It makes us want to slick back our hair and wear silver leather RIGHT NOW. On another note, we know that Karl is relatively tech savvy and carries around multiple iPads--and Net-a-Porter just tweeted that Karl is now on Twitter.
