Karl Lagerfeld, Designing for Winemakers?

This man can literally do anything, but not without his shades and leather gloves

Karl Lagerfeld, Chanel’s leading man, has had quite the busy week. In addition to showing his collection in a mock airplane during Spring 2012 Couture Fashion Week in Paris, getting a cat (Choupette!), launching a new line for Net-a-Porter, and interviewing himself (wait, what?), he also found time to announce a wine label.

The wine, a 2009 Gran Cru Classé, is a mix of grapes, including cabernet sauvignon, merlot, petit verdot, and cabarnet franc. The bottles are being released in honor of the 350th anniversary of Château Rauzan-Ségla, the winery Chanel has owned since 1994.  

Lagerfeld is designing the exclusive bottle label, making this edition sure to be as sought-after as a 2.55. It's up for pre-sale here

Watch Karl interview himself, face to face, something you definitely don't want to miss.
