King Karl

There are few fashion designers that are distinguishable by their silhouette alone, have teddy bears created in their likeness, or a career that spans over five decades. In fact, when I say few - I mean one. There is only one Karl Lagerfeld, and his influence within the fashion universe is virtually unparalleled. Of course, we all know of that everything he touches - be it the house of Chanel, Fendi, Valentino or Chloé - turns to sartorial gold, which is why I couldn't be more excited about the launch of his hot new label, KARL.

The collection is signature Lagerfeld. It's cool, slick and sharp with an air of rebellion. There are fuss-free wardrobe staples (vests and tees) and standout high-style updates. Think metallic shorts, sequin-sprayed collars and biker gilets. So, having scoped out the entire collection, here is my definitive KARL edit.
Drumroll, please....
