Kanye and Karl Lagerfeld met for lunch in NY

What could they be planning?

Karl Lagerfeld and Kanye West are both in New York for business this week. Lagerfeld took time out from shooting the new Chanel campaign (and West from… performing at and attending parties?) to meet up for a gentlemanly lunch at the Mercer Hotel.

A source told the New York Post that the men were engaged ‘in a deep conversation, then later appeared to be getting devices out to discuss design ideas.’


Maybe the lunch was a way for Lagerfeld to thank West for taking part in his Little Black Jacket project. Or maybe the former is just trying to convince the latter to change the lyric to, ‘What’s that jacket, Chanel?’

Wait, wait, we’ve got it: West is going to dress as Lagerfeld for Halloween, and wanted the designer’s help! That must be it… right? Alternate (better) ideas in the comments section, please.
