In July 2008, Mr. Lagerfeld had agreed to participate in Isla Moda project but further to the financial crisis, the owners of the islands were not in a position to fulfil their obligations under the agreement and were forced to postpone the project sine die. Consequently, Mr. Lagerfeld has put an end to his collaboration with Isla Modas owners. – from Karl Lagerfeld's Communication Director
