Imagine being 16 and getting to design a collection with Karl Lagerfeld. Well, you would have to be Kaia Gerber, daughter of Cindy Crawford, to do so. The Kaia x Karl capsule is coming, and so shortly (three months) after her debut season on the runway, no less. This just shows Gerber's massive influence on the community—her 2.7 million Instagram followers hold their own weight.
The line itself, which releases in September, will hit the crossover between Kaia's West Coast, laid-back style and the refined Parisian chic Lagerfeld is known for. According to WWD, it will have all kinds of items: things for nighttime and daytime, and accessories as well as clothes. It will be released in Karl Lagerfeld stores and on Karl.com, along with a select few other stores.
It's fitting for Gerber's first collaboration, as she finished her first catwalk season (gracing 18 runways) by opening the Chanel show for Lagerfeld. In a statement, chief executive officer of the Karl Lagerfeld brand Pier Paolo Righi said that "the collection will definitely inspire many young women," making us look even further forward to what Kaia and Karl have in store.
