Fendi keeps churning out its furry, pricey, impossible-to-get Karl Lagerfeld keychains. Encouraged by Karlito sales of more than a million dollars, the fashion house is reprising the accessory for spring/summer 2015. As modeled by Lindsey Wixson in Fendi's new ad campaign, the continuously waitlisted keychain looks a little different this time around, with a blond mohawk for little Karl.
Fendi is doubling down on Karlitos, bag bugs and more furry creatures. There's now a $600 Karlito iPhone 6 case with the same silver fox and goat fur as the keychain. Fendi's spring/summer 2015 campaign also reveals a furry watch, while pre-fall 2015 features sweaters, sneakers, and backpacks adorned with fuzzy little monster faces.
