Would you pay anything to dress like Karl Lagerfeld? Net-a-Porter is putting you to the test.

Teaming up with the iconic fashion designer, the online retailer is offering a one-of-a-kind collector's piece: a diamond pavé and leather collar featuring over 40 carats of black diamonds and a 22.33 carat hydrothermal emerald. “I’m renowned for my love of a high collar and I wanted to create a true collector’s item with this one-off piece. Merging the masculine with the feminine and uniting the world of fine jewellery and high fashion, to me this collar is a work of art and a real show-stopper,” says Lagerfeld.

WHERE TO BUY IT

Before being shipped to the to-be-determined owner, the collar will go on public view as part of the 'Brilliant' exhibition at Masterpiece London until 4 July. If the hefty price tag of £29,000 (€35,000, $44,000 USD) seems far-fetched, you should note that the collar also comes with a hand signed sketch by Herr Lagerfeld - a little added incentive for yah!
