GOOD EGG: The Karl Lagerfeld brand has revealed the campaign shot for its collaboration with upscale French silverware brand Christofle on a limited-edition cutlery set.
Launching in the fall, the 24-piece set of silver-plated flatware, part of Christofle’s Mood line, will be available in two egg-shaped storage capsules dressed in a play on shadow and light, inspired by the Art Deco movement.
Karl Lagerfeld, a longtime Christofle connoisseur, with many pieces in his own home, lensed the campaign image which showcases a signed black egg-shaped capsule in lacquered stainless steel placed on a black podium against a black background.
Lagerfeld was one of the world’s foremost collectors of Art Deco furnishings before selling his collection at auction in 1975 — though the period continues to feed into his streamlined design aesthetic.
It’s not the first time Lagerfeld has dabbled in tableware: In 2011, the multitasking designer created a collection of crystal glasses with Swedish brand Orrefors.
