FLYING HIGH: To spy Karl Lagerfeld’s latest surprising collaboration, listen to the skies. AgustaWestland has tapped Lagerfeld to design VIP helicopters, both the interiors and exteriors. The Anglo-Italian company, controlled by Italy’s Finmeccanica, is to initially focus on its AW139 twin-turbine helicopter, though the partnership may be extended to other commercial models. AgustaWestland said Lagerfeld’s “creativity and sophisticated style” would allow it to “introduce a new, limited edition, customized solution” for its growing customer base. The company’s Web site notes that the AW139 is able to carry up to 15 passengers with plenty of luggage at “very high speed."
