In his quest for doing something absolutely new fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld has landed a collaboration with Orrefors famous for their crystal utility and art glass. The collaboration has yielded three mini collections of clear, colored and limited edition glassware.
The collection is sleek and graphic featured in sharp geometric shapes. The color palette is the one favored by the designer – black and white. The colored collection of glassware includes small and large black and white wine glasses and tumblers.
Karl Lagerfeld describes the white glasses as “free standing geometrical clouds”. And his vision of the collection was more geometrical shapes, less fuss and a monochrome color palette.
The limited collection includes flutes, bowls and vases with beautiful glass sphere details. The limited edition gift box comes with two champagne flutes with Karl Lagerfeld‘s initials monogram, coasters for glasses and a poster of designer’s sketch. There is only 5,000 packages.
