    :-/ That does seem curious. To be honest, when I think of Karl Lagerfeld, I think of Chanel. BTW: have you sniffed Liquid Karl?

    I bought Liquid Karl on impulse. I havenęt worn it since, itęs a really interesting scent though. Just not suitable for wearing...
    Smells exactly like freshly baked cardamom bread covered with chocolate. Very avant-garde, totally in the vein of Commes de Garcons stuff.

    NEW YORK and PARIS, December 13, 2004 Ų Tommy Hilfiger Corporation (NYSE:TOM) and Karl Lagerfeld today announced an agreement under which Tommy Hilfiger Corporation will acquire the trademarks of Karl Lagerfeld for an undisclosed cash amount. The transaction includes Lagerfeld Galleries and other Lagerfeld collections. In connection with the transaction, the parties have also entered into a long-term contract with Mr. Lagerfeld to continue to design and provide creative direction for Mr. Lagerfeld‚s brands. The acquisition does not include Mr. Lagerfeld‚s agreements with Chanel and Fendi.

    Tommy Hilfiger Corporation and Mr. Lagerfeld plan to build Mr. Lagerfeld‚s brands on a worldwide basis. Their union is expected to draw upon the reputation of Mr. Lagerfeld as one of the world‚s most successful and visible fashion designers, and the experience and global infrastructure of Tommy Hilfiger Corporation. Mr. Lagerfeld‚s collections are currently in a start-up phase, and consist of a women‚s and a licensed men‚s collection. They are distributed within select European and Asian markets.

    As part of the global expansion plan, Mr. Lagerfeld‚s brands will be developed within the U.S., particularly through the upscale department and specialty store channels. The goal is also to expand the distribution of Mr. Lagerfeld‚s women‚s and men‚s collections geographically, and pursue opportunities for growth across multiple categories.

    David Dyer, President and Chief Executive Officer of Tommy Hilfiger Corporation, stated, „This acquisition is an important first step in our long-term strategy of building a multi-brand portfolio of businesses. The Karl Lagerfeld name has tremendous cachet. We believe this opportunity will provide an exciting, new growth platform within the upscale apparel segment and complement our existing business. Since the Lagerfeld business is currently in its start-up phase, we expect that the acquisition will be somewhat dilutive to the Company‚s near-term results. However, we see Mr. Lagerfeld‚s brands as contributing significantly to revenue and earnings over the long term.š

    Tommy Hilfiger, Honorary Chairman and Principal Designer, added, „Karl is a true inspiration. Designing for the world‚s most prestigious collections, he has continuously set the benchmark for style, creativity and sophistication. Karl will continue to have autonomy in executing his vision on a global scale, while benefiting from a supportive partner. We look forward to the many opportunities ahead.š

    Mr. Lagerfeld noted, „In choosing a partner to expand my business, I was looking for a company that has built a business on a global basis, and possesses the infrastructure and resources to make our vision for the Lagerfeld brand become a reality. I have been impressed with David, Tommy and their team, and I look forward to working together on exciting new initiatives.š
