Breaking: Karl Lagerfeld Is Not Wearing Black

Whatever happened to all black everything? It's rare to see Karl Lagerfeld wearing an ensemble that isn't predominantly black, but the Kaiser was spotted in New York's SoHo neighborhood on Tuesday wearing head-to-toe olive. He paired his green tweed suit with his customary high white collar and fingerless driving gloves and affixed an oversize bumblebee brooch to his blue and brown striped tie.

Lagerfeld once said that he sticks to black because "in black you can forget about yourself. I don't think about myself when I am looking at materials and doing fittings . . . When you work in fashion, and you have to work with all the colours, you can't be there in green, pink or something very fancy, because, in the end, you have the feeling that you are just a sample yourself."

The designer will be among his samples this week. He's currently in New York shooting Chanel's Spring 2013 campaign with models Stella Tennant and Ondria Hardin. He's also scheduled to do a shoot for Harper's Bazaar and to speak at WWD's CEO Summit. We wonder if the black will be back by the time he takes the podium?
