Creator, photographer, designer and editor Karl Lagerfeld is releasing his first line of crystal in collaboration with Swedish institution Orrefors.

Lagerfeld’s collection includes champagne flutes and coupes, coasters, bowls, vases, as well as water and liqueur glasses. Transparent, black or milky white, sometimes engraved with the KL monogram, the series typifies the Karl Lagerfeld ethos of ultra-strict lines and functionalism.

These will be available in Europe as of 1 September 2011, then released in the United States for sale exclusively at Bloomingdale’s from 15 October, to go nationwide on 1 November.
