CHILD’S PLAY: Kids and grown-ups munched on cotton candy and Karl Lagerfeld-stamped marshmallows at an event to present the new Karl Kids collection on Wednesday at Karl Lagerfeld’s headquarters in Paris.
Workshops for kids included one to make a key chain in the shape of Karl Lagerfeld’s profile and a pattern coloring workshop where kids could dress a Karl Lagerfeld figurine.
Lagerfeld’s fashions are now offered for boys and girls from newborn up to 16 years old, along with a range of accessories including black gloves, a black tie and a Choupette headband, named after Lagerfeld’s pet cat.
The feline also appears as the whiskered logo festooned on the clothes.
Lagerfeld’s signature kids’ wear collection is set for spring 2016 retailing, with France’s Groupe CWF having the global license.
Selected pieces will be available at children’s e-retailer Melijoe in December before the full collection rolls out to multibrand stores and department stores internationally in January.
French actress Céline Sallette came with her 6-year-old daughter Alice. “She wants to decide what she wears now,” Sallette uttered with a sigh, while browsing the collection.
The actress has a flurry of films set for release by year-end including “Les Rois du Monde” and “Cessez-le-feu” with Romain Duris as well as the second season of “The Returned.” “I’ll start the shooting of ‘HHhH,’ an adaptation of Laurent Binet’s novel,” she added.
