Two things are certain when it comes to Karl Lagerfeld: he rarely makes a formal appearance these days not holding the hand of his beloved godson Hudson, and his meme persona Karlito has reached cult status.

First spotted being swung by Cara Delevingine on a furry key ring back in 2014, the Karl Lagerfeld‘s cartoon-like glasses Karlito character has now it’s become Fendi’s unofficial mascot, planted on clutches, jumpers, wallets and even earmuffs. Now there’s another addition to the range: Fendi has just released its kitschy Karlito wrist watch, a mishmash of pink, white and black fur (very Fendi), precious stones and leather.watchupdated


The Fendi My Way Karlito watch sports detachable fur

What makes this timepiece impressive is that it’s ever so versatile – that fluffy fur you see is detachable, giving you the choice of a statement piece or a subtle accessory. Available at Designa Accessories (02 8543 4600) and priced at $2195, we think the whack factor is worth the outlay.
