For spring/summer next year Karl Lagerfeld takes the Lagerfeld man to the West Coast of America.
Classic Hollywood elegance meets contemporary tailoring in the new collection, unveiled at the Bread & Butter trade show in Germany earlier this week.
Mixing fabrics, the collection introduces suit jackets in jersey and knits, while the classic tuxedo jacket becomes a light trenchcoat with zippers and waterproof fabric that reinterpret classic tailoring. Colour contrasts are also key; classic black sports jackets are updated with a navy sleeve, while much-loved classics, including a biker jacket in supple leather, nod to Herr Lagerfeld’s classic Hollywood influences.
The fine details aren’t missed out: accessories, including a wide range of bags in matte leather, moccasins, classic lace-up Oxfords and luxe trainers in woven leather, round out the luxurious, retro feel of the collection.
