Karl Largerfeld’s new gig is designing costumes for an opera!

Karl Largerfeld is already known for his beautifully designed clothes and accessories, but now the designer is getting ready to debut his creativity on a new stage. The designer has been roped in to design the costumes for “Brahms-Schönberg Quartet.” The opera will open at Opéra Bastille this summer. Though Benjamin Millepied, is himself stepping down as the Opera’s director of dance, he tapped Lagerfeld for the George Balanchine dance piece.

“This is a more romantic Balanchine. I’ll make it very Vienna Secession,” Lagerfeld told WWD, “That’s the mood of the music.” To immerse himself in the mood of the performance and create the right Parisian atmosphere, Largerfeld rented a large apartment near the Opera Garnier and filled it with his own collection of Art Deco furniture by Louis Süe and André Mare.

We’ll be excited to see what are no-doubt going to be some very high-drama costumes!
