I am a huge fan of Karl Lagerfeld but his obsession with himself has got to stop. Don’t get me wrong. The guy is a genius but creating a bear in his own likeness is like building a shrine to himself. Granted I still worship him because of his brilliant collections season after season for Chanel.
Karl knows a thing or two about what sells and I am sure Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld fans with some Gs lying around will snag one of these limited edition Steiff bears that retail for $989 at Neiman Marcus and Bergdorf Goodman. This is uber excessive spending and not even this fashionista can justify spending that much on a bear.
I know there are only 2500 bears available worldwide but in these times, can we really justify buying a Sh***y bear that will be sitting on a mantle or somewhere safe because of fear of destroying it? Ok so the bear is cute. It has a Swarovski crystal belt and tie and comes autographed by Karl himself. It even has custom made boots and awesome shades just like Karl’s but really oh really. Check out the bear for yourself here.
