To honor the memory of Karl Lagerfeld, the iconic Chanel and Fendi creative director who died earlier this year, some of his famous friends have come together for “A Tribute to Karl: The White Shirt Project,” which reimagines Lagerfeld’s signature garment.
Kate Moss, Cara Delevingne, Amber Valletta, Lewis Hamilton, Tommy Hilfiger, Alessandro Michele, Carine Roitfeld, Diana Kruger among others, will each design their own interpretation of Karl’s white shirt.
Titled ‘The White Shirt Project’ it will be led by Carine Roitfeld, former Editor-in-Chief of Vogue Paris and style consultant at the Karl Lagerfeld brand. The collection will be presented with an exhibition during the Paris Fashion Week in September.
Since number 7 was Karl’s favorite number, a total of seven designs will be made 77 times and sold for 777 euros each. The proceeds will go to the French organization “Sauver la Vie”, which promotes medical research projects at the University of Paris Descartes and was also personally supported by Karl Lagerfeld during his lifetime.
