Karl Lagerfeld has cemeted himself as the King of fashion by appearing on the cover of i-D Magazine’s ‘Royalty Issue’ for spring 2012, as one of nine other coverstars who are yet to be revealed.
Wearing all his own clothes (who could ever style Unkle Karl but hismelf?), the German design legend is pictured wearing an eye patch over his signature black shades, although we’re not quite sure why. He even shot the images himself, surely with the help of a remote control, or perhaps his new kitten Choupette went behind the lens for him?
Inside the issue all things Royal are celebrated as Britain leads up to HRH The Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, from music to fashion to film. If Karl Lagerfeld’s the first cover star we can’t wait to see the rest!
The Royalty Issue is out on March 22nd, available from all good newsagents and online at i-Donline.com from March 19th.
