Karl Lagerfeld teamed up with Coca-Cola to make a limited edition package to be sold at Colette, and not a thing about it surprises us. Naturally, he’d only elect to associate himself with Diet Coke, considering his no-fatties-allowed rules. And of course, he’d make the design an homage to himself. Can’t say the man doesn’t stick to his guns. Do you love Uncle K so much that you would pay $5 for something you could just as easily buy for 99 cents? Die-hard fans can purchase the $80 boxed set (no joke) which comes with one bottle of Lagerfeld’s Coca Cola Light, an impressive display box, and a bottle opener. Ca-ching! If you’re interested, Colette is also counting your calories in another new way this month, with a lunch box program in Paris. On the menu: Vitamin and carrot sticks. Om nom nom.

How weird is it to think that there is someone out there in the world who looks exactly like you? Freaky, right? But what if you were able to see your doppelganger’s face and know her name? Well, get ready to see double because Coke Zero has a new program called Facial Profiler that uses Facebook to find your long-lost twin and even gives you the opportunity to contact her. It picks out pictures from your Facebook profile or you can upload them via webcam and find your face match. So I tried this crazy thingy and discovered that I do indeed have a double. My doppleganger’s name is Lauryn Stone and she’s a 79 percent match. Should I contact her? What do I say? “How does it feel to be so hot?” [Coca Cola Zero] Keep reading »
Coca-Cola undergoes yet another makeover—this time, with primo designers for charity. In order to benefit young women affected by the earthquake in Italy’s Abruzzo region, Coca Cola Light asked eight female designers to come up with fashion-branded bottles for a money-raising auction taking place in Milan later in the month. The results, like Missoni‘s signature print, Blumarine’s rose petals, or Marni’s geometric designs, are a bit mesmerizing to look at. Other designers and fashion houses involved in the project include Donatella Versace, Alberta Ferretti, Etro, Fendi, and Moschino.
