Kaia Gerber Is Adding Designer to Her Résumé With a New Karl Lagerfeld Collection
Just three months after making her runway debut, Kaia Gerber is expanding her fashion résumé and trying her hand at designing. The 16-year-old has joined Karl Lagerfeld to design a capsule collection, set to launch in Fall 2018.
"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, CEO of Karl Lagerfeld, stated in a press release. "We have been working intensely over the last months with Kaia in L.A. 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."
The Karl Lagerfeld x Kaia collection will feature footwear, sunglasses, jewellery, and so much more. The brand hasn't released any previews of the designs, save for this shot of Kaia holding a studded leather glove, surrounded by Karl's design team. We do know the range will feature California-vibe pieces for day and more French-inspired pieces for night. Get a second look at the sneak peek ahead.
