Genius in a Bottle

The creative mind behind Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld, is taking a break from designing clothing to bring his talents back to the world of soft drinks. He’s designed his second collection of Diet Coke bottles, set to hit specialty food stores in June. Lagerfeld is famously a fan of the drink and is rumored to have lost 90 pounds in 2001 by drinking Diet Coke and eating steamed vegetables alone. Yum. The collection of three limited-edition bottles features colorful pink, white and black designs inspired by the new Diet Coke heroines: puppets named Bernadette, Eleanor and Irene. Each bottle, like its mascot, has its own personality and will be numbered and emblazoned with the designer’s famous silhouette. The three-pack comes in collectable prism packaging, also designed by Lagerfeld, and can be bought separately or as a set.
