Created in 2005 by Italian artist Simone Legno, lifestyle brand tokidoki produces clothes and accessories featuring unique Japanese-inspired artistic interpretations. The tokidoki label has signed collaborations in the past with brands such as Levi’s, Skull Candy, RIDE Snowboards and LeSportsac, but Legno’s skill of rendering iconic characters in the cutest, most adorable ways possible, has recently been exercised on one of the most iconic figures of the fashion world – none other than Karl Lagerfeld.
King Karl has let himself be reinterpreted in the unique tokidoki style, ending up as three adorable figurines available as limited edition. Even Choupette, Karl’s cat, and probably the most adored pet on the Internet right now, has been reinterpreted in a tokidoki version, in the arms of a super cute Mini Karl.

The Karl tokidoki caricatures have also been printed onto a series of clothes and accessories – a superhero-like clutch, T-shirts, pants, a scarf, tote bags and an iPhone case, available as limited edition in Karl Lagerfeld concept stores in Berlin, Amsterdam and Paris, as well as online, through Net-A-Porter.
