Lucie Kaas’s iconic Karl Kokeshi was among the pieces included in a Sotheby’s auction containing over 1000 pieces of Karl Lagerfeld’s private estate, including valuable books, silverware, his original drawings, and renowned paintings. The Karl Kokeshi was in possession of Karl Lagerfeld since 2016, when Lucie Kaas first launched the collection. At the time Karl Lagerfeld was the creative director of Chanel and the piece caught the eye of those who worked closest to the legend.
Designed by English artist Becky Kemp, the Karl Kokeshi was and continues to be a tribute to Karl for his unparalleled contribution to Fashion, Art and culture.
For the team at Lucie Kaas, the news of being included in such an auction was an honor itself, with names such as Pierre Jeanneret & Charlotte Perriand, Zaha Hadid, & Christian Liaigre being auctioned side by side with this piece from the brand.
