Kaia Gerber Designs a Collection For Karl Lagerfeld
August 20th seems to be a good day for collabs. The latest one to be revealed is the Karl Lagerfeld x Kaia capsule collection – a youthful take on the off-duty model look. The stunning beauty with a supermodel pedigree, Kaia Gerber is one of those girls that has the definition of street-style down to a T – she looks as good off the catwalk as she does stomping down past Bella and Gigi. So, it doesn’t come as a surprise that 16-year-old Kaia just designed her first collection – and for Karl Lagerfeld’s eponymous brand nonetheless. Combining the fashion legend’s signature black & white night-time-in-Paris aesthetic with Kaia’s easygoing L.A. cool-girl vibe, this capsule is exactly the kind of uptown/ downtown mix that will fit into just about anyone’s wardrobe. Nurturing that 16-86 demographic Lagerfeld is oh-so-known for, the collection breathes with youthful energy, yet succeeds in looking grown-up. We can totally imagine one of those cool mother-daughter duos – Cindy & Kaia we’re looking at you – wearing it at the same time. A smart business move for Lagerfeld, and a great next step outside of the world of modelling for Kaia – this is the collection to look out for in the coming weeks. Out August 30th.
