PARIS — Is Karl Lagerfeld the busiest designer this couture week? Of course he is.
In addition to his back-to-back couture shows for Chanel on Tuesday, he’s gearing up for his long-awaited thrust into masstige on Wednesday, when his new Karl collection goes on sale exclusively on Net-a-porter.com.
And on Friday, writing appointments will start here for his new Karl Lagerfeld Paris collection, licensed to Italy’s Ittierre, in which he gives a more luxurious spin on his graphic style. Karl Lagerfeld president Pier Paolo Righi described the 300-piece Paris line, priced to retail from $300 to $2,500, as having an “advanced contemporary” edge rather than being a classic designer collection. For the first season, the company is targeting about 50 to 60 doors in Europe, and about a dozen or so in America, he noted.

“It transcends the genre that is you think of a sci-fi show — you don’t expect it to be so profound or emotionally riveting,” Evan Rachel Wood told WWD of her Emmy nominated role in Westworld. styled by @samanthamcmillen_stylist 📸 @emmanmontalvan #emmys2017 #wwdeye
