To celebrate the e-commerce launch of the designer has created three limited edition bags and here's how to get them...

Set the date for November 10, 2015! That's the day three one-of-a-kind Karl Lagerfeld handbags will go to auction on artnet. The bidding war will coincide with the launch, which will be available in 97 countries. Along with the bags the original corresponding sketches will also be up for the taking. 

Speaking about the auction, Jacob Pabst, artnet's CEO says: "We are extremely proud to be partnering with Karl Lagerfeld, whose enduring success and influence are unprecedented. Karl has been a legendary figure of the fashion world for decades, but his talent extends well beyond his numerous collections. His fashion shows and his stores become art installations, while his drawings and his photography show us the extraordinary breadth of his talent as an artist." We couldn't agree more.

You'll be able to get a glimpse of the collector's bags, come November 5, 2015 and it'll be worth the wait as these pieces aren't part of the retail collection.
