Summary: When it comes to Karl Lagerfeld, there’s no doubt that the man is a genius. An industry icon, his carrying on of both the Chanel and Fendi lines never takes away from his own namesake line, which, this season, is exceptionally chic and exudes impeccable construction. Designed with couture fabrics and almost entirely in black and white, Karl’s elegant draping and folding techniques result in pieces that are beautifully structured, employing duality in his use of sharp angles and soft, rounded curves. Playing beautifully with jackets, mini-dresses and flared, high-waisted shorts, he embraces the looks of the season, without engaging in inconsequential trendiness. With this collection, Karl went for minimal accessories, instead accentuating with metallic belts and gleaming embroidery. Above all, Karl Lagerfeld is known for making statements – but this season, the statement made is one of utter elegance: impeccable tailoring and clothing that radiates confident timelessness. Designing always for class, Karl’s collection is stylish sophistication at its very finest.
