Karl Lagerfeld is designing Helicopters

Is it just us or is it really just that everyday we open up WWD we find the designer Karl Lagerfeld is taking on a new odd project?! We're really beginning to think Karl Lagerfeld is a robot deep inside. Well, going back to the topic, Karls latest endeavor is designing a helicopter. He’s been tapped by Anglo-Italian company AgustaWestland to makeover both the interiors and exteriors of their VIP helicopters, so we can expect to see a chopper with Lagerfeld‘s face on it hitting the skies soon. The company said Lagerfeld’s “creativity and sophisticated style” would allow it to “introduce a new, limited edition, customized solution” for its growing customer base–and would no doubt attract a certain kind of fashion-y clientele. AgustaWestland also noted that while the collaboration will initially focus on the AW139 twin-turbine helicopter, “the partnership may be extended to other commercial models.” And at the rate Karl is going with these collaborations we’re sure they’ll have a whole fleet in no time. We can’t wait to see the helicopters interior and exterior when the remarkable designer is done designing them!!
