It can't be stated strongly enough that Lagerfeld sits at the very top of the high fashion industry in terms of his design and style influence. Also, you must separate his personal style from the incredible craftsmanship and quality of his work at Chanel, Fendi, and the House of Karl Lagerfeld.   BTW, what he's wearing in this picture is very tame compared to contemporary men's high fashion. This specifically is a high fashion play by Apple.
Arguably (though it would be very difficult to argue), Karl Lagerfeld is the single most influential fashion designer IN THE WORLD. I say very smart move, Apple. I also think this watch would be priced well upwards of $50,000 and only a handful would ever be made.
Lipstick on a pig.
The conspiracy theorist in me feels as if it's intentional on Netflix's part. I, for one, would quickly zoom through all the good stuff if I could easily find it and then cancel as soon as the House of Cards season ended.
But is it patented? I mean really, really patented. 
I think the MBA is going away and will be fully-replaced by the macBook. When that happens..I'd guess 2-3 years. For example, they still sell the non-Retina 13" MacBook Pro and will likely do so until IDK? A year or two ago they still sold a non-Retina 15"MBP. I suspect they'll draw down inventory on the 13" MBP and ramp volume and lower prices on the current MacBook as soon as logistically and economically feasible. 
I guess I'm not so orthodox about it and understand the annoyance with folks who refer to the MacBook as a tablet. For me and others, however, this feels like a new kind of device somewhere between a Mac and an iPad. For many, the compact form factor, a single-port design, Retina display, and a long battery life, all enable a tablet-like charge-and-go. Such design decisions reference the iPad design (which we all know emanated from iPhone and so on). Hence, the "-esque" ,...
I didn't think the comment was troll-ish or off the mark, but that's just me. Apple appears to have applied a lot of what they learned designing iPad and iPhone to making this machine.
It's clear that Apple's hardware teams have pretty much a blank check to design the absolute best possible machines. I really don't think ANY other personal computer company's hardware division is even close to having this type of freedom-even if they had the talent.
