Neiman Marcus Hosts ‘Karlito’, Fendi’s Charmed Accessory

The fashion world is bugging out over Fendi’s latest accessory, and Neiman Marcus at Town Center in Boca Raton is one of only five stores holding a trunk show for the must-have statement. The limited-edition Karlito Bug Bag keychain will be available on Sept. 16 and 17 from 10:30 a.m to 4:p.m at the Fendi store inside Neiman Marcus.

The luxurious mink, fox and goat fur keychain retails for $1,750 and already had a waitlist of more than 600 people as of July.

Karlito is modeled after fashion legend Karl Lagerfeld, creative director for the brand. It has his trademark white hair, tailored high-collared white shirt, black tie and his signature black glasses.  It’s even adorned with a colorful ponytail, available in pink, orange, or green.

The Karlito charm began as a personal gift from Fendi designer Sylvia Venturini to Lagerfeld. But when it-girl Cara Delevingne opened up the Milan’s Fall Fashion Week show dangling the keychain between her fingers, fashionistas were dying to get their hands on one.

This wasn’t the first time Delevingne was seen playing with a Lagerfeld doll. She has posted pictures on her Instagram clutching a knit mini-Lagerfeld, posed with it in magazine shoots and appeared alongside it in Chanel’s 2013 short film “Women Only”. Perhaps this was what inspired Venturini to design the keychain. It was after all Delevingne’s walk down the runway with it that ignited the craze.

Only a limited number of charms are available, and Neiman Marcus expects them to sell out very quickly. For more information contact 561/417-5151.
