Karl Lagerfeld is the original pioneer behind the scenes for most elite fashion houses. Known for this stint as head designer and creative director for Chanel, Fendi and his eponymous fashion label, Karl Lagerfeld has time and again transformed himself as well his labels. The 80-year old German designer continues his reinvention with another first. Slated for March 9 debut at Harrods, Karl Lagerfeld has announced two new fragrances: ‘Karl Lagerfeld for Him’ and ‘Karl Lagerfeld for Her’.
Though Karl Lagerfeld’s earliest fragrance edition was created in 1978, the fragrance is a first under new licensing arrangements with InterParfums. The 20-year agreement replaced a previous license that the Karl Lagerfelf design house had with Coty, following the termination of that contact through mutual consent.
Karl Lagerfeld for Him is an aromatic – fougere fragrance that begins with fresh mandarin and lavender oil. Its heart of green apple and violet is laid on the base of amber and sandalwood. The men’s fragrance is available in 30, 50 and 100 ml Eau de Toilette.
Karl Lagerfelf for Her boasts a fresh citrus, fruit and flowers on a woody-musky base. It opens with accords of lemon and peach, with a floral heart of magnolia, rose and frangipani soothed with the base of amber wood and musk. The women’s fragrance is available as 30, 45 and 85 ml.
Karl Lagerfeld is also an accomplished photographer who shoots ad campaigns for Chanel, Fendi and his own line each year. The advertisement campaign has also been shot by the designer himself and features French model Baptiste Giabiconi, touted as the world’s highest paid model; and German model Kati Nescher, who was ranked at No. 20 in models.com’s Top 50 Models in 2013.
