Karl Lagerfeld,Kanye West Talk Fashion.
Chanel icon Karl Lagerfeld and rapper Kanye West held court at the Mercer Hotel on Wednesday, talking business over lunch.
The duo turned heads at the SoHo spot where our spy reports, “They were in a deep conversation, then later appeared to be getting devices out to discuss design ideas.”
West had infuriated Lagerfeld, a regular guest at the hotel, as he and Jay-Z recorded their album “Watch the Throne” there, causing the Kaiser to complain about the noise and commotion caused by their entourages.
But Lagerfeld and West have bonded over their mutual love of fashion, and West appeared in this year’s “The Little Black Jacket” project, a look at celebs in Chanel jackets photographed by Lagerfeld.
