Karlbox is a special creation by pony-tail wearing fashion legend, 83-year-old Karl Lagerfeld for Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) and it is actually quite ironic because Karlbox actually contains 350 items of drawing paraphernalia which is no doubt geared towards a person who do art and as we all know, most artists are not well off – certainly not as well to do to splurge a cool $2,850 for the Karlbox. Yep. That’s right. Nearly 3 grand for a bunch of pencils, markers, charcoals, and watercolor brushes – all arranged neatly in accordance to their color and contained in this beautiful black lacquered beech wood cabinet that opens like some makeup artist box.
In addition, essentials like sharpeners, sharpening knife and sandpaper block are also included. Basically, it is a complete package. The only things not included are suitable paper to draw or paint on and a Kensington lock to keep it from being stolen. There’s, of course, Karl Lagerfeld’s mark on it, by the way of a pony-tailed silhouette of the designer himself found on the inside of the box. In case you are wondering, for the amount you need to drop for a set, you are looking at over 8 dollars per item. That’s kind of expensive by any stationery standards and yet, it is already sold out. If you want one, you’d better get yourself on the wait list. Also, we not sure if it helps if you know that the set is made by Germany heritage art supplies maker, Faber-Castell.
