Anyone who’s even semi-serious in the art and design world has heard of Karl Lagerfeld. As the head designer and creative director for Chanel and Fendi, it’s safe to say this German designer knows a thing or two. Pair that reputation with Faber-Castell, one of the world’s oldest manufacturers of art supplies, and you have the recipe for one hell of a collaboration.
Dubbed the Karlbox, the entire piece hosts 350 tools for drawing and painting, neatly packed in a traditional Chinese wedding chest. It comes with everything an artist could ever yearn for in the world of drawing, including 120 Albrecht Durer Artists’ watercolor pencils, 60 Polychromos Artists’ color pencils and 60 pastels, 60 Pitt Artist pens brush and finalizers and plenty of other utensils for unlimited possibilities. However, while these possibilities are indeed endless, the number of KarlBoxes are not. Only 2,500 sets exist worldwide and are a bit difficult to get your hands on. However, if you do, expect to drop upwards of $3,000 for a complete set. Each edition is also numbered and comes with a certificate of authenticity. [Purchase]
