Karl Lagerfeld launches his e-commerce site with artnet.com. Uncle Karl has designed three one-of-a-kind bags featuring his own sketches, and accessories that are to be auctioned online on November 2. Want a piece of this? You will be able to bid on the bags from November 5-10 ;) I've got my eye on the resin postcard clutch (see below)! What about you?
What's more, according to Pier Paolo Right, CEO of Karl Lagerfeld Group BV, Karl's e-commerce site, set to launch in early November, is "going global, in 97 countries, with five languages, including Japanese". The new e-store will introduce new designs fortnightly, featuring the occasional capsule collections developed specifically for the channel, the first being Karl Around the World. Inspired by the designer's travels, the capsule collection will include sweatshirts, sweatpants, crossbody bags, passport holder, sleeping mask, travel diaries, and a nylon shopper.
