The long-awaiting line of clothes and accessories, which was announced back in January, launched on August 21
Joint collection by Karl Lagerfeld and Kaia Gerber is finally here
Is there anything Kaia Gerber can’t do?
The 16-year old model - daughter of Cindy Crawford, one of the original supers of the 1990s - who has walked for the likes of Chanel, Valentino, Calvin Klein, Off-White, Miu Miu, Chloe and Saint Laurent, can now add another title to her CV: fashion designer.
Gerber has teamed up with the creative head of Chanel and Fendi, Karl Lagerfeld, to launch a joint fashion capsule line, simply called Karl Lagerfeld x Kaia.
Released ready for the autumn/winter season, this neat collection of ready-to-wear and accessories is predominately black (as one would expect of Lagerfeld).
The line segues from tidy body-con dresses with cut-away details, to slouchy oversized athleisure tops, with a belted faux-fur coat and maxi dress thrown in for good measure. Given this line is aimed at the teen market, most things have an easy-to-wear feel, such as jean-jackets and T-shirts cropped through high on the waist, and shirts and blazers that can double as dresses, all with a vaguely sporty air.
Everything comes emblazoned with a hand-scrawled stylised "Karl x Kaia". Gerber herself models the pieces for the campaign, looking predictably amazing.
In a nice touch, and presumably to prove that the model was hands-on with the design process, we get to see her sitting with the design team, looking at the final details, including zips as embellishment and extra-long branded webbing belts, or super-cute lurex over-the-knee socks. The range was launched on August 21, and it is a safe bet that with the combined pull of the fashion supremo and model-of-the-moment, the pieces will sell out fast.
