Justin Bieber teased a photo shoot and hinted at a collaboration with Karl Lagerfeld at his Instagram Thursday night. Naturally, speculation about their project is now everywhere.
To cut to it, after Bieber met Chanel designer and weird but legendary Karl Lagerfeld at a celebrity and fashionista stuffed party on Tuesday, the unlikely couple have been hanging out.
In fact, they got busy. Justin did a photo shoot with Karl on Thursday, which seems to be the start of a secret project.
“Big things coming with my friend @KarlLagerfeld,” Justin wrote next to his latest (at press time) Instagram.
The 20-year-old’s singer’s collage post is a fashion meets pop culture wet dream.
In two of the photos, Bieber — shirtless, naturally — is doing things with his hair.
Another reveals the “Believe” superstar in a white toweling robe looking reflectively into the distance while Karl does his best Bond villain impression.
And the last? The mystery that is Lagerfeld looks positively chirpy with Justin’s arm around his shoulder. Just like two guys in a bar. A select bar, granted. But you get the point. They got on.
Which bodes well for more Justin Bieber and Karl Lagerfeld in the future.
With no news forthcoming on the Calvin Klein Underwear campaign front, even after (or perhaps, especially after) the Canadian’s strip at Fashion Rocks last month, if “big things” — as in more than just one photo shoot and working with Chanel — are in the works, that trumps a CK contract.
Here’s a taster.
In the shot above, the Chanel Kaiser looks as if he got totally into working the lens in that moment.
Lagerfeld is known to be skilled photographer, although it’s not known if he shot the whole shoot. But it could be a sign of good things to come that the iconic designer took a hands-on approach and it will be interesting to see the results of Karl’s collaboration with Justin.
Meanwhile, the singer has now left the City of Light after his flying visit and an unfair face-off with paparazzi on Tuesday after dining with Kendall.
According to reports the Biebs rocked up to the opening of the L’Arc nightclub Thursday night. And look who he met.

But back to Lagerfeld and Bieber’s hush hush project.
Were they working on a magazine spread, a new fragrance promotion or a major Chanel campaign with the shirtless one as its new face?
Now that really would be “Big things.”
