This marks the first design collaboration for Cindy Crawford’s daughter
Kaia Gerber has already achieved many of the things that most teenagers can only dream of, from opening couture shows, fronting international fashion campaigns and appearing on the covers of well-known magazines.
And now the 16 year old model’s got a new string to add to her bow: co-designing a capsule collection with the legendary Karl Lagerfeld.
Launching on 30th August, “Karl Lagerfeld X Kaia” spans ready-to-wear, accessories, footwear, sunglasses and jewellery. It fuses Karl’s Parisian DNA with Kaia’s carefree Malibu style.
“I’ve loved being part of the creative process and working with Karl is a dream,” Kaia said about the collab. “It’s given me a new appreciation for how hard designers work and how much thought thought goes into every collection.”
Karl, who called on Cindy Crawford’s daughter to open the Chanel spring/summer 2018 show, praised the model-of-the-moment. “She has a youthful, independent attitude that is inspiring,” he said.
The lookbook was shot in LA and photographed by Karl himself, a budding photographer at his renowned studio, 7L, in Saint-Germain-des-Pres in Paris.
