Karl Lagerfeld Tapped for Theophilus London Album Art Direction

Adding to his already-ridiculous resume, Karl Lagerfeld has signed on as art director for Theophilus London’s sophomore album.
Per a WWD report, the Brooklyn-based musician’s Vibes record and first official single “Tribe” have that Karl charm, and it sounds like London and Lagerfeld have some history together.
Theophilus told WWD, “I met Karl maybe three years ago. My agent called me with Karl on speaker and Karl was like, ‘Yes, I’ll shoot your cover.’ I was freaking out, screaming. I was like a kid. I’ve always admired him. He’s a genius in so many different ways…I wanted to just shoot for the stars.”
London added, “His whole schedule is booked up for the next three years and he was only free for two hours, so we made it work. He brought all the ideas to the shoot. His handwriting is even on the cover.”
