Fossil, Inc. announced a strategic partnership with Karl Lagerfeld to design, develop, and distribute a line of men’s and women’s timepieces under the Karl Lagerfeld label.
The first timepiece collection is scheduled to launch in spring 2013.
As genial as Karl Lagerfeld seems to be as a designer for Chanel and Fendi, besides perfume, not too many licensees were successful in the past.
Menswear licensee ultimately failed after many years of losses. Then is was picked up again. But, the website, www.Karl-Lagerfeld.de, is dead. And even on his own site, KarlLagerfeld.com, nothing.
