I was able to find more images from the Karl Lagerfeld for Sephora collection that those of us in the U.S. unfortunately won’t have access to Three words: Karl-shaped-eyeshadow. If a doll, snowglobe and nail polish with killer packaging weren’t enough, the Karl Lagerfeld for Sephora collection also includes a makeup case with Karl’s likeness on it and an eyeshadow palette with Karl-shaped eyeshadow. The more I find out about this collection, the more disappointed I get that it won’t be available in the U.S.! So jealous of those of you in Singapore and Europe!

Yesterday I posted about Karl Lagerfeld’s holiday collection for Sephora and mentioned that in addition to a snow globe and a doll, he also created some cosmetics. Part of the cosmetics collection includes a set of black and gold nail polish and it comes in this really cute box. I’m so sad this is not a U.S. release!

Karl Lagerfeld is Sephora’s “Designer of the Year” and has created a doll, snwo globe and cosmetics collection for Sephora. The cosmetics collection includes eyeshadow, nail polish and accessories for the holidays. The collection will be available in Sephoras in Singapore and Europe beginning on November 6. Why is this not available in the U.S.? I’m so SAD!!!
Roberto Cavalli recently opened a boutique in the Ginza section of Tokyo. When asked about why he chose his particular location he stated: “I want it to be that [shoppers] come to find me. They shouldn’t find me by accident walking in Ginza. I think this is a really winning strategy. I will demonstrate this to the dear Messrs. Chanel or other people like that. Fine, you dress the grandmothers and the mothers and I’ll dress their kids.”
Mr. Cavalli, please don’t kid yourself. The only people that buy your clothes are people who have terrible taste. And, please don’t dress up as Karl Lagerfeld anymore. Thank you.

It was funny because Karl and I were doing a shoot for Japanese Vogue, where I was talking about the underwater themes in my record, and he was saying how he wanted to do an underwater theme for his show. Then he said: ‘Wouldn’t it be nice if you came down on a big wire like you were floating?’ and I was like: ‘What?’ And he said: ‘We can get all these harps together…’ and all these ideas were coming to him just really off the cuff… so I thought he was joking and then he put his hand on mine and said: ‘Ok, so we’ll do it, I’m glad we talked.’ It was all really spontaneous! It was great to be a part of the spectacle, it wasn’t purely just my performance. It was about the clothes, and the models, and this whole set as well so it was quite nice being a part of something so exquisite and exciting. The clothes were wonderful, they all looked like beautiful, pastel-coloured fish in this underwater landscape with the pearls all over them.

Karl Lagerfeld has ridden the wave of collaborations and is no refocusing his energy on himself – his own signature “masstige” (mass + prestige) collection that is. Karl – the name of the new collection – will be less Chanel and have more of a rock ‘n roll feel that we see in Karl Lagerfeld’s eponymous collection. Consisting of 100 pieces ranging from $95 to $450, Karl will debut exclusively online on Net-a-Porter.com and then roll out on KarlLagerfeld.com on February 28th.
“It’s my today’s taste and style and a reflection of how I think a great number of people would like to be dressed now,” is how the designer described the collection.
Future plans for Karl also include menswear, availability in 20 high-visibility retailers and pop-up shops in major cities around the world.
Natalie Massenet, founder and executive chairman of The Net-a-Porter Group, stated:
“It’s a very strong, well-edited collection with a great mix of street attitude and timeless chic. It also is an entire wardrobe that mixes and matches well with itself,” she said. “While it has great contemporary price points, it has enough edge to resonate with a sophisticated fashion consumer who is looking for great new items at any budget.”
Lagerfeld will also be launching Karl Lagerfeld Paris – a premium line with a price point ranging from $411 to $3,425. Karl Lagerfeld Paris will launch during Paris Couture Week.

Florence Welch has been one of Karl Lagerfeld’s muses for some time. She performed at the Chanel Mademoiselle Dinner in Paris, Karl styled her for Vogue Japan and she performed recently at the Chanel Spring 2012 ready-to-wear show. In their latest collaboration, Karl Lagerfeld photographed Florence Welch in Chanel for the “Shake It Out” new limited edition vinyl single. The photographs are stunning – I’ve never seen Florence Welch look lovelier. What do you think?

Halloween is just a few weeks away and it’s hard to go anywhere without seeing a reminder of the upcoming holiday. While my days of dressing up are done, I still like to imagine what I would be for Halloween if I were celebrating. One of my favorite costumes that comes to mind is Karl Lagerfeld. Uncle Karl’s style is unique and instantly recognizable so it’s a perfect Halloween costume. And, you can put it together with some stylish pieces that you may already have – or can incorporate into your existing wardrobe. Here’s what you will need:
1. A wig. If you can’t find a white one, you can put your hair in a pony tail (or a darker wig) and cover your hair (or wig) with baby powder – just like they did back in the day;
2. Leather (or faux leather) fingerless gloves;
3. Black sunglasses;
4. Black Tie (or White) – the wider the better;
5. A brooch with a gemstone to use as a tie clip;
6. A long chunky silver necklace to wear over your tie;
7. A white high-collar shirt;
8. Black jeans – a funky finish like wax coating gets you extra points;
And, if you’re going as chubby Karl from the 1980s then you can’t be without a….
