Diet Coke-Obsessed Karl Lagerfeld Appears on Limited-Edition Bottles, Shoots Coco Rocha For Campaign
Karl Lagerfeld, who reportedly lost 90 pounds in 2001 by consuming only Diet Coke and steamed vegetables and has been known to employ Diet Coke butlers, is now popping up on a series of limited-edition bottles of his favorite zero-calorie treat. A silhouetted Lagerfeld in profile and scripted signature adorn the white, pink, and black package — a collectable available at Galeries Lafayette and Colette as a limited-edition boxed version of the bottle, with matching bottle opener, priced from 47 euros, or $64 at current exchange
Lagerfeld chose Coco Rocha and Baptiste Giacobini for the ad campaign, photographing the former holding his favorite Lalique crystal goblet.
If you love those LeSportsac bags, blind box toys, and various and sundry other items from Tokidoki, you'll be crazy about the Italian artist's new line of makeup for Sephora. With the most impressive illustrated packaging since Tsumori Chisato for Shu Uemura last year, these babies are too adorable not to covet. Here's the collection.
For Halloween, Pepsi released a special limited-edition costumed can. Instead of the typical jack-o'-lanterns or orange and black theme, however, the soda company simply printed Halloween-related words like boo and ghost on the cans. Have you seen them in stores? What do you think of the design?
October isn't just National Vegetarian Month; it also happens to be the 25th year that America's celebrated National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I'm all for finding a cure, and being the gourmand that I am, my favorite place to support the cause is in the kitchen.

For the first time ever, Coca-Cola will release a line of special cans that celebrate Summer.

On March 18th, Cheap Monday will be landing at Inven.tory in New York to sell off fifty limited and numbered pairs of jeans as part of their custom jeans tour. The patched/ripped/dyed jeans retail for just $70 each, so it comes as no surprise to learn that the batch assigned to each leg of the tour--in Stockholm, Copenhagen, Berlin, and London--were all but sold out by the time the second case of beer was finished. See Cheap Monday's photo diary below and, for more, check out the brand's Fall 09 collection where these denim incarnations first made an appearance.
We've been so caught up with Spring 09 happenings and elections and holidays that we nearly missed our chance to report on the Rodarte Archive Sale on Presse Boutique. If you remember, we reported that the online store was to release seven Rodarte items resurrected from previous seasons and, if you remember, that release date was this afternoon. So far (7:21pm EST), the studded gloves ($580) and mohair scarf ($375) have sold out but the rest are still up for grabs (granted, in limited sizes). We're not quite as blown away as we hoped we'd be--there's definitely some color missing, or some extraspecialwow-factor but, alas, Rodarte can do no wrong in our minds. Check out the gallery below for the seven archival pieces included in Presse Boutique's sale. They might not be available forever but you could call it another page in e-commerce history.
