Friends of Karl Lagerfeld team up for ‘The White Shirt Project’ in memory of late designer

It’s been five months since the departure of famous designer Karl Lagerfeld. Leaving behind an unforgettable memory and unmatched talent, which can barely be reprised by another, the late Chanel Creative Director is been remembered once again by his industry friends with the invention of ‘A Tribute to Karl: The White Shirt Project’.

Karl disclosed in an interview some time ago, “If you ask me what I’d most like to have invented in fashion, I’d say the white shirt. For me, the white shirt is the basis of everything. Everything else comes after.” Due to the designer’s hopes for a white shirt invention, a handful of his famous friends which include, Kate Moss, Cara Delevingne, Diane Kruger, Amber Valletta, Tommy Hilfiger, Alessandro Michele, Takashi Murakami and Carine Roitfeld are teaming up together for the project, inventing Karl’s signature shirting which he purchased from Hilditch & Key.

“After Karl’s passing, so many people wanted to share their admiration for Karl and express their emotions. The participants in this tribute are all people who Karl knew, who he felt connected to, or who inspired him,” said Pier Paolo Righi chief executive officer of Karl Lagerfeld, of the selected few.

All proceeds from the project will benefit the French medical research charity Sauver la Vie, which the designer supported for many years. Carine Roitfeld will oversee the project in her capacity as style advisor at Karl’s eponymous fashion brand ‘Karl Lagerfeld’. The shirts will be on display for the first time during Paris Fashion Week for sale in September at Karl Lagerfeld’s headquarters on the Rue Saint Guillaume. Seven of the final designs will be replicated 77 times and sold for charity at a price of €777 (€700) in accordance with Lagerfeld’s favourite number seven.
