Karl Lagerfeld x Kaia
At the incredible age of 16 and in her 2017 catwalk debut, Kaia Gerber, daughter of supermodel Cindy Crawford, walked an impressive 18 shows for a number of high fashion brands including Versace, Saint Laurent, Prada and - of course - opened Chanel. We can confirm that Gerber will now be adding designer to her enduring CV. Karl Lagerfeld has asked the young talent to create a capsule collection for his line. Combining the German’s Parisian aesthetic with Gerber’s LA style, the Karl Lagerfeld x Kaia collection will consist of ready-to-wear and accessories.

“When Karl first told us his idea to collaborate with Kaia, we were all excited by the incredible potential and power of bringing their two worlds together,” Pier Paolo Righi, chief executive officer of Karl Lagerfeld, told WWD.
“We have been working intensely over the last months with Kaia in LA and at our studio in Paris. It was exciting to see her clear vision, passion and engagement, and the collection will definitely inspire many young women,” he added.
The collection is set to launch in September with a series of events in Los Angeles, New York and Paris, before hitting Lagerfeld's stores and Karl.com. An impressive collaborative project that may not need it, but we wish our client, Karl Lagerfeld and the stunning model the best of luck. We eagerly await a peak of the upcoming collection.
