Karl Lagerfeld x Shin Tankana - KarlxShin Paper Toy Mania

Screen Shot 2013-10-20 at 15.01.05Fashion designer, photographer and creative director for both Chanel and Fendi , Karl Lagerfeld has teamed up with the super cool Shin Tanaka in order to make some toys out of paper.

Karl has taken a brief break from the fashion world and has turned his energy in to working Shin Tankana. Shin has come a very long way in his years  of using the Asian art of origami in order to create replicas of some of the coolest sneakers on the streets to becoming internationally iconic design star. Like Karl, Shin is a perfectionist and is known for paying close attention to detail. Karl’s iconic glove, sunglasses and cat have all been paid much attention to.

Check out the amazing project at the Karl Lagerfeld store in Paris from now until October the 27th. It’s been rumoured that project will travel all around the world including berlin next month. If you one of the unfortunate folks that can’t make it to Paris or berlin, catch a sneak preview of the project below
