Introducing the KARLxSHIN artistic collaboration.


KARL LAGERFELD has invited Japanese graffiti artist and designer Shin Tanaka to create a special project for the Parcours Saint Germain, called Paper Toy Mania.


The Parcours Saint-Germain is held every year in Paris’ Saint-Germain-des-Prés neighbourhood. Artists are invited to exhibit original pieces in luxury boutiques, cafés and hotels, creating a living artistic installation throughout the city.


On show in the KARL LAGERFELD Saint-Germain store, Paper Toy Mania mimics the look of large-scale origami. Tanaka was inspired by the imagery and culture of urban fashion, fused with the traditional Japanese art form.
