Prolific designer, fashion personality and creative director of the Chanel and Fendi fashion houses, Karl Lagerfeld can now add one more role to his extensive portfolio: candle. Courtesy of Welton London, the 82-year-old’s likeness has been condensed into its most essential elements, namely the sunglasses and high poplin collar that have become as much a representation of the man as his works. The design was first realized as a sketch by Lagerfeld before being developed into the final product by perfumer John-Paul Welton. Contained within a white lacquered glass atop a biscuit porcelain base, the candle reflects Oriental scents of mandarin, orange, and pink peppercorn in the top notes, bolstered by a heart of jasmine, orange blossom, cardamom, nutmeg and a base of teak. Limited to 300 pieces, the Candle Karl is now available in-stores at select retailers for $300 USD.
