What’s Krazy Unkle Karl up to this week, you ask? Oh, you know, the usual. Powdering his hair, dressing like a goth French cowboy, designin $37,500 collars that are so high they resemble bondage gear. Wait, what was that last part?

Lagerfeld is well known for a lot of his sartorial tics, but perhaps the most identifiable of them is his penchant for high, stiff collars. Indeed, detachable collars have been a huge accessories trend in fashion circles for almost a year, so it only makes sense that Lagerfeld would release one in his own image. What’s surprising about the move is that instead of incorporating them into one of the many lines that he designs, Lagerfeld chose to release a one-off fine jewelry piece under his own name, sold via Net-a-Porter.

The collar features rows of small black diamonds, totaling 40 carats, with a central emerald that weighs in at just over 22. In case all that sounds just a little bit too decadent for you, take a bit of comfort in knowing that “a percentage” of the profits from the collar will be donated to CLIC Sargent, a children’s cancer charity. No word on exactly what that percentage will be, but is anyone else mildly surprised that it’s going to kids? Unkle Karl doesn’t seem like the type to suffer the chaos of children particularly well. Who knows, though? Lagerfeld’s always surprising us.

If you’re interested in the collar (or would just like to gawk at it some more), you can inquire about purchase via Net-a-Porter.
