When Karl Lagerfeld debuted the Karlito, a fluffy bag charm made in the designer's own image, on the fall 2014 runway, it sparked something of a Karlito kraze. Since then, the cute caricature has graced everything from studded clutches (aka the "Punkarlito" collection) and fleece sweatshirts to teeny-tiny enamel pins, sneakers, and iPhone cases. And now Fendi has unveiled up-close looks at the Karlito in watch form.
As "a charm for wrists," the timepiece from the exclusive "Fendi My Way Karlito" collection embodies all the beloved characteristics of the original, including Lagerfeld's signature countenance with his equally iconic sunglasses as the dial (set with diamonds, of course), a detachable hot pink, white, and black fur mane that pays homage to the original Karlito pom, and a white leather collar and black tie created to resemble the designer's uniform.
If anything could convince us to go analog again, it's this. So really, it's only a matter of time before we see the Karlito timepiece on the wrists of influencers and Lagerfeld's army of It-girl muses alike, i.e. CaKe (Cara Delevingne and Kendall Jenner).
For now, the most we can do is rank this at the top of our wishlist.
