Karl Lagerfeld is unquestionably one of the fashion worlds most revered icons. As the creative helm of Chanel, Fendi and his own superstar Lagerfeld label – Karl has created some of the 20th and 21th century’s most influential and lasting looks.
It is therefore with great anticipation that the world of children’s fashion waited with baited breath to see what his much heralded kids collection would look like.
‘Karl by Karl Lagerfeld’ is a a super elegant and chic affair, echoing many of the now iconic motifs central to the designers almost 60 year career.
The collection finds inspiration from rock star glamour, using a clean and bold pallet with a contemporary sense of shape and tailoring. We also find playful echoes of the designers own inimitable style; the pointed white collar, the black leather gloves and the monochrome shades …
These are looks for the coolest of kids.
Another central element to the collection is the use of Karl’s cat and best friend Choupette. This smitten kitten’s face and silhouette adorns many of the designs bringing a fun and quirky element, especially to the younger parts of the collection.
We especially adore the Choupette gloves and hat (see the picture further down) such an instant style classic and so uniquely Lagerfeld.
There are also a host of very simple yet bold, contemporary looks, with a much more casual, street wear feel – using the Karl logo to striking, graphic effect – perfect for older kids.
