How exciting is this! Now you can have an only yours and all yours Karl Lagerfeld bag with the original sketch for the bag signed by the Kaiser himself. If you are a Karl fangirl like me, you are already salivating at the thought of getting closer to what seems a piece of Karl himself.
To celebrate the launch of the KARL LAGERFELD global online women’s flagship store on karl.com, fashion icon Karl Lagerfeld and artnet have partnered for an exclusive auction of three one-of-a-kind handbags, each accompanied by its original sketch. Designed by Karl Lagerfeld exclusively for the partnership, the unique bags have been expertly crafted by hand, while the rare sketches are coveted as pieces of art in and of themselves and are seldom made available for sale. The exclusive handbags and original sketches are currently live for bidding on artnet Auctions now through November 10, 2015.
The 3 unique bags each with an original drawing are definitely innovative yet easy with Karl’s playful yet timelessly classic touch.
