KARL LAGERFELD has designed a limited edition of the Christofle “MOOD” with just 1,500 exclusive pieces available worldwide “PARIS, FRANCE – Christofle and KARL LAGERFELD are pleased to announce their collaboration to introduce an exclusive KARL LAGERFELD edition of the MOOD flatware set and decorative case. Designed by KARL LAGERFELD, the piece will be available in two exclusive colorways and produced in limited quantities. The first time in Christofle’s history it is collaborating with a fashion brand, and Karl Lagerfeld, is a long-time Christofle connoisseur, with many pieces in his own home. ” Inspired by Art Deco art and architecture, KARL LAGERFELD’s design features structured, graphic lines on the elliptical egg shape, which enhances the contrast of geometry. The polished silver option is made from mirrored stainless steel, with 1,000 pieces available. The sleek black option is crafted from lacquered stainless steel, with just 500 pieces made. Both are engraved with the Christofle coat of arms on one side and KARL LAGERFELD’s signature on the other, and each will be numbered on the bottom. The designs have also been exquisitely photographed by KARL LAGERFELD. The MOOD opens to reveal a 24-piece set of silver-plated flatware, and each piece is stamped with the KARL LAGERFELD silhouette logo. This flatware will only be available in the KARL LAGERFELD MOOD, and not individually sold. The KARL LAGERFELD MOOD is not only a dramatic decorative object, but a useful piece for every home — whether used for special occasions or everyday life. The MOOD is Christofle’s most renowned design that reimagines the classic codes of table setting. It is secretive in its function as it appears streamlined and sleek on its exterior, though it opens to reveal a 24-piece silver-plated cutlery set. The MOOD is synonymous with excellence in silversmithing and reflects Christofle’s avant-garde vision for relaxed entertaining that is both elegant and refined.
“For its first-ever collaboration with a celebrated fashion designer, Christofle quite naturally reached out to KARL LAGERFELD, whose singular and visionary creativity we so admire. Our wish was to collaborate with a designer who embodies French elegance, and whose creations blend know-how, modernity and timelessness. Mr. Lagerfeld’s international stature resonates everywhere Christofle is present. In addition, our collaboration on MOOD allows both Houses to speak to a cosmopolitan, discerning and epicurean hedonistic clientele.” said Nathalie Remy, CEO of Christofle. “The collaboration between Christofle and KARL LAGERFELD was a natural fit,” said Pier Paolo Righi, CEO of KARL LAGERFELD. “We have a shared appreciation for style that is contemporary yet classic, pure and elegant. Karl’s MOOD design is sophisticated in its simplicity and is sure to be an iconic tableware in any home.” TECHNICAL INFORMATION MOOD KARL LAGERFELD: engraved and polished stainless steel case.
