Fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld has joined forces with luxury Swedish glassmakers Orrefors to create a graphic new collection of crystal glassware.

Ideal for those happy to let the vintage trend pass them by in favour of something more contemporary, the Orrefors By Karl Lagerfeld collection features a clean-lined and functional selection of crystal champagne flutes, and coupe, wine, water and liqueur glasses - in transparent glass, and black or white hues - plus monogrammed coasters, and a variety of unique crystal bowls and vases.

Orrefors glassworks have been a Swedish institution for over 100 years, carrying on the tradition of hand-blown (rather than machine-made) glass shaped by master artisans, and the brand's glassware appears on the finest tables in the country including the Swedish Royal Palace.

Pieces from the Karl Lagerfeld collection can be bought individually, and also in gift boxes containing a pair of monogrammed champagne flutes alongside a set of engraved coasters - ideal wedding gift list fodder. The collection will be available from September 1 at Harrods. Visit http://www.orrefors.com/karllagerfeld to see Karl Lagerfeld talk through the range.
