Fashion label Karl Lagerfeld is showing off its “humor and self-mockery” through a capsule collection and animated video starring the namesake designer and his furry friend Choupette.
French artist Tiffany Cooper has created a mini-collection of fun ready-to-wear apparel and accessories, showcasing her mordant and yet warm-hearted sense of humour while capturing the designer’s signature style.
Tee-shirts and sweatshirts dotted with patches feature images of the couturier executing a frenzied dance before the eyes of the rather nonplussed cat, or facetiously donning a grass skirt while Choupette grabs a ukulele on a Tahitian beach. The duo also plays pretend-we’re-Indians in a summer camp tent before noshing oversized ice cream cones and milkshakes, then sauntering off on roller-skates towards new adventures.
Like the memorable Fendi keychain in his likeness, the collection shows Lagerfeld’s sense of humor and good-natured ability to poke fun at his iconic image. It’s a good thing too, considering Cooper has also illustrated brilliant mock movie posters including “Breakfast at Karl’s” and “Karl Bond.”
The collection is available online at StyleBop.com and in Karl Lagerfeld boutiques.
