Karl Lagerfeld designs second collection of Diet Coke bottles

Previously designed by Matthew Williamson and Roberto Cavalli among others, Diet Coke and Coca-Cola bottles have been getting collectable makeovers by fashion's biggest names since 2003. These bottles won't reach the selected stores until summer this year, but you'll have to get ready to pounce on these drinkable desirables before the collectors do.

Chanel's creative director is a big fan of the brand. He reportedly lost 90 pounds in 2001 by only drinking Diet Coke and eating steamed vegetables.

The designer has also been known to employ Diet Coke butlers who bring him the drink in a Lalique crystal goblet.

Lagerfeld says: 'As everybody knows, I drink Diet Coke and nothing else, night and day.'
