It's Lagerfeld's World

We're a little worried that Karl Lagerfeld has just designed the HAL 9000. Lagerfeld collaborated with German safe maker Döttling to create the world's most expensive safe, the Narcissus. For around $330,000, the Narcissus is tall and skinny at six feet tall and less than a foot deep. Its smooth, steel body is sheathed in chromed aluminum like a modern monument to a pharaoh, and the two butterfly doors open to reveal walls of watch-winders and jewelry drawers. The Narcissus will, of course, be hyper-exclusive. "Only 30 models will be made," WWD reports, "and the first one belongs to Lagerfeld." [WWD, subscription required]
