K-A-R-L. The famous first name of the world’s most famous designer was spelled out all over his Karl Lagerfeld collection — as the plastic clasps of colorful new handbags, as charms on the chain of a cross-body bag, and playfully printed across a sweatshirt. Accessorieswise, what wasn’t done in Lagerfeld’s likeness was done in his cat’s.
Voila, the Choupette range of bags, small leather goods and sporty shorts and tops. After all, the two are now internationally recognized soul mates, and the point of this collection is to be all about Lagerfeld. In addition to the standard black-leather perfectos, white shirts and jeans, the designer threw an appealing curve ball of color and print into the clothes, brightening them up with pink, yellow and faded blue denim.
