FIT FOR THE GYM: The Berlin-based online retail giant Zalando has teamed up with the creative director of Chanel and Fendi to create a sports-inspired collection called Karl Lagerfeld Sport City. The e-tailer previously collaborated with Italian blogger Eleonora Carisi in 2014 for an exclusive capsule collection.
Lagerfeld, who once famously said, that “Sweatpants are a sign of defeat,” didn’t seem to be stopped by his own words and designed ready-to-wear and accessories for the gym and beyond. The collection includes sweatpants, dresses, blousons, shirts and bags in fabrics such as breathable neoprene, perforated leather, cotton and crepe. Some looks feature Lagerfeld’s famous cat Choupette as a print.
Prices range from 40 euro, or $45 at current exchange rate, for a bag, to 390 euro, or $440, for a jacket.
Ten pieces were shown at a launch event in Milan, such as a perforated leather and neoprene bomber jacket in black, royal blue and off-white.
