Cara Loves Karl “back to school” capsule revealed
The house of Karl Lagerfeld has unveiled its latest creative collaboration, a link-up with British model and actress Cara Delevingne.
Entitled Cara Loves Karl, it is billed as a “perfect for back-to-school” collab capsule, which will debut on September 8 in Karl Lagerfeld stores, on Karl.com and via select wholesale partners worldwide.
Cara is “a character. She’s the Charlie Chaplin of the fashion world. She’s kind of a genius, like a character out of a silent movie,” Karl is quoted as saying in a release, which features images of the collection.
Designed in sustainable fabrics for all genders with signature “transformable pieces that offer a diverse range of styling options in just one garment,” the Paris-based house stressed in a release.
Aesthetically, the clothes blend Karl’s signature black and white German expressionism with Delevingne’s quirky sense of humor. So, Lagerfeld’s classic crisp white cotton shirt is reborn as a two-tone vertically divided white and pale blue shirt, and then dissected with buttons above the tummy. Other mannish versions come with the buttons along the spine. While unisex gent’s suits are cut with deep-gorge jackets with cross straps, worn over Peaky Blinders-worthy wide pants.
Add in faux-fur biker jackets; unisex denim pants; voluminous hoodies and transformable bombers and it’s a neat blend of posh industrial style and European tailoring. While accessories include beanies, totes, bovver boots and fanny packs.
“(Karl) believed in me when so many others didn’t, including myself. He is a visionary, a genius but more than that a dear friend,” comments Delevingne, whose 31 acting credits include Suicide Squad, Anna Karenina and music videos for the likes of Chanel, Dior and Jimmy Choo.
