Earlier this year, we got a hint that supermodel-in-the-making Kaia Gerber was to design her first fashion collection with none other than Karl Lagerfeld. And today, we’re finally getting a first look at the collaboration between the legendary designer and rising It model. The Kaiser and Gerber, who opened Chanel‘s Spring/Summer 2018 got together to make the designer’s largest capsule collection so far.
With this collection, Lagerfeld is likely looking to replicate the success of Tommy Hilfiger’s collaboration with Gigi Hadid. The ongoing collaboration produced four collections and runway shows, reportedly sky-rocketing sales at Hilfiger thanks to Hadid’s top model influence.
California girls, mark your calendars! The #KARLXKAIAXREVOLVE pop-up shop will be open from Friday, August 31 to Sunday, September 2, daily from 12:00 to 6:00 p.m. PST at the REVOLVE Social Club (8070 Melrose Ave). Don’t miss your opportunity to discover the collection in person. If you’re not in L.A., shop online from Thursday, August 30 at KARL.COM and REVOLVE.COM. #KARLXKAIA
In campaign images shared by WWD, Kaia models several looks from the collab, including a wetsuit-inspired outfit, lots of leather, cool suiting separates, and some unexpected pink pieces. There’s also a range of sunglasses, jewelry, bags, and hats in the mix as well.
The fall collection will be available to shop starting August 30 and coinciding with its launch, the brand will host a series of events held in LA, New York, and Paris. No word yet on what those events will entail, but it’s likely you can expect Kaia, Karl, and lots of Instagram-worthy moments.
With an incredible debut runway season and several major campaigns already under her belt (Chanel included), the 16-year-old’s first big design project is just the latest feat in her rise to achieving It model status.
