Karl Lagerfeld and Faber-Castell launched the Karlbox, a limited-edition collection of high-end drawing tools and artists’ supplies, presented in a collectable box designed by Lagerfeld with exquisite craftsmanship and inspired by a Chinese wedding chest. The limited-edition collection is fittingly labeled Karlbox with a slogan that reads: “Colours in black.” Only 2,500 have been made and each boasts its own unique serial number as well as a certificate of authenticity, and a $2,850 price tag.

“Since I was a child in Germany, Faber-Castell has been the most famous brand, known for its especially good quality,” said Karl Lagerfeld. “That reputation remains just as true today, particularly for artist pencils.”

“What amuses me while drawing is the fact to draw,” added Karl Lagerfeld. “To me, drawing is like breathing and writing. These are things that almost relax me.”


Artists… Ready, Set, GO!

Karlbox is available for purchase online and sold exclusively at Faber-Castell stores, Karl Lagerfeld boutiques worldwide, and Harrods London.
