The Bag Lady is turning positively vert with envy this week after our sister site Kiss & Makeup landed a particularly welcome invitation: a trip to Karl Lagerfeld's Parisian HQ along with beauty gurus Shu Uemura. The brand has recently partnered with Lagerfeld to create a new cosmetic range inspired by Japanese contemporary culture and contemporary art.

In between sampling the products, the team also got the chance to check out some not-yet-released pieces we were dying to see as they were offered an exclusive early preview of Karl Lagerfeld's spring/summer 2013 bags and accessories range. Ooh la la! They kindly snapped us some sneaky photos from the collection, so here it is in gallery form for you to enjoy.
