German designer Karl Lagerfeld is never seen in anything but monochrome, and his black suits and ties form a signature look that makes him instantly recognisable. The creative director at Chanel and Fendi also runs his own eponymous label and unsurprisingly, its latest accessories collection revels in the colour black. Part of the K/Kuilted range, this mini handbag may look simple at first glance but is anything but. Quilting adds an interesting dimension to the design, while on closer inspection the chain handle is revealed to be made up of studded rings. This is a clever and edgy creation from one of the world’s greatest designers.
