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.
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.
