I'm excited to present a post from one of my favorite sites, ShelterPop!
The fashion designer branches out with his first collection of glassware.
Swedish company Orrefors is offering up a haute new take on their signature hand-blown glassware. Karl Lagerfeld's collection is, as you'd expect, sleek and glossy pieces in his signature color palette of milky white, black and crystal. A few pieces even have his special touch: An engraved monogram. No, not your monogram, though. His. Any KLs out there would be smart to add this to their wishlist. The collection includes glasses — from flutes to coupes to water glasses — as well as vases, bowls and coasters.
The collection is beautiful, no doubt about it. But the quotes from Lagerfeld in this video are kind of the best part. He describes one glass as a "freestanding geometric cloud" and reveals that not only does he hate to drink diet coke out of heavy or cheap glasses, but that plastic cups are even unacceptable while traveling. "Even when you're on the road, if you're spoiled like me, you carry a little box with your own glass." The collection hits stores September 1st. But in the meantime, watch this video about the process, and to get more Lagerfeld gems. Continue reading to watch the video!
