When Karlito, a fur pom-pom made to look like Fendi creative director Karl Lagerfeld debuted in 2014, it had over 600 customers on its waiting list so far. Since then, the tiny, furry visage of Lagerfeld has graced everything from studded clutches and fleece sweatshirts to teeny-tiny enamel pins, sneakers, and iPhone cases. And now Fendi has unveiled Karlito to be wear on the wrist. Yes, we’re talking about the timepiece from the exclusive “Fendi My Way Karlito” collection.
Each watch features an ironic caricature of Karl’s iconic look, complete with his distinctive sunglasses on a silver, black and white lacquer opalin dial. Three diamonds serve as indexes (approx. 0.02 carat), while the bezel is decorated with sleek black steel which is set upon a leather band. The Fendi logo proudly stands at 12 o’clock.
The watch comes on Black Fendi Flamingo calfskin leather strap, and with stainless steel pin buckle. For some extra wrist candy, a removable tri-colored Arctic fox fur collar can be slipped on to the watch’s band. Retail: $1,495
