Karl Lagerfeld Collaborates to Create Velvet Glasses

Karl Lagerfeld is collaborating with Italia Independent, founded by Lapo Elkann, a man who is also often seen with statement glasses. An Italian industrialist and entrepreneur, Elkann has worked on many projects, including the Fiat x Gucci collaboration. One of the categories that he produces is eyewear, which he has perfected a velvet-like finish.

The two eyewear lovers, (I mean, when was the last time you saw Karl without glasses?), will create three pairs of optical glasses and sunglasses each, with two being unisex. When asked about the collaboration Lagerfeld stated: “I love velvet gloves on iron hands and velvet sunglasses on steel eyes.” (WWD).
