If you don’t already believe that Karl Lagerfeld is superhuman, his most recent announcement might finally sway you. The designer—whose incredible work includes collections for Chanel (both couture and ready-to-wear), Fendi, and his more accessible namesake label—has taken on yet another project, one that is slightly different in scope than what we’ve seen on the runway.
As reported by WWD, dance director Benjamin Millepied has tapped Lagerfeld to design ballet costumes for Brahms-Schoenberg Quartet, which premieres in July. Of course, this isn’t Lagerfeld’s first foray into the theater space. In 1980, he designed costumes for Les Contes d'Hoffmann, and has done so for several other performances since. Opera News acknowledges this past work as paving the way for fellow luxury designers to extend their talents to the stage. We can hardly wait to see the romantic designs he creates for the dance piece this summer.
