We already have “Chanel Beach” on our bucket list! The legendary Karl Lagerfeld threw another spectacular show, once again transforming the Grand Palais into a Chanel dream destination. Coco Chanel, the brand’s founder had a special bond with the beach. She would vacation in the seaside resort of Deauville in Normandy, so the beach was a huge inspiration for her collections.
Models designing capsules is the next big thing in fashion. After the planetary success of Gigi Hadid’s collaborations with Tommy Hilfiger, and Bella Hadid’s with Chrome Hearts, another rising star is going the same way. The partnership between the iconic Karl Lagerfeld and Kaia Gerber was announced earlier this year. A few months later, we finally have a first look at what the model-of-the-moment included in her first capsule.
The iconic designer Karl Lagerfeld partnered with the trending Australian beauty brand to create a makeup collection. ModelCo is a very popular makeup label that has been on the market for over 15 years. With this huge collaboration, Karl wanted to expand his influence and satisfy the needs women of different ages. The line will feature more than 50 products including face and lip goodies.
The chief executive officer of Karl Lagerfeld, Pier Paolo Righi stated that ModelCo is a “creative and innovative company, with a team that thinks out of the box. They are very connected with a Millennial audience and deeply grounded in fashion. At the same time, ModelCo resonated with the iconic, playful DNA at the heart of Karl Lagerfeld. This helped to bring this project to life, creatively, in the product palette we developed together. We felt that these attributes made them a perfect match with what we stand for and who we want to connect with. This collaboration presents a new, very relevant way to connect with our audience, for whom we are much more than a fashion brand ‚Äö√Ñ√∂‚àö√ë‚àö√Ü we are a fashionable companion in their daily lives.’
The two brands spent a lot of time making the products special with developing both a quality formula and gorgeous packaging. They wanted to offer high-quality makeup that also stands out in terms of packaging. For the first time ever, ModelCo introduces the special LED light and mirror system for the Lip Lights products. The Lip Lights part of the line includes eight shades of lip gloss, eight matte lipstick colors and four different tones of the special-effect topcoat.
Lagerfeld is one of the most renowned designers in the world, and he exceeds in aesthetics like no one else. So, he made sure that the packaging is as unique as his clothing creations. Karl placed his recognizable logo on a lot of the items as a special final touch. A part of the products will even feature references to his iconic cat Choupette. Aside from the lip goodies, the collaboration will also introduce quality mascaras, long-lasting eyeliner, makeup brushes, highlighters, blush, brow products, eyeshadow palettes and more.
The Karl Lagerfeld x ModelCo collection will drop on May 14. It will be a global launch, so the chances are you’ll be able to snatch it from a store near you or get it online. Europe, the U.K., and the U.S. are the three markets that ModelCo will focus on for the joined collaboration. Prices will range between $15 and $195.

With the athleisure style at its peak, is no wonder that more and more high fashion designers are collaborating with sportswear brands. The legendary Karl Lagerfeld and the skateboarding shoe brand Vans joined their forces for the first time. Many were surprised that the king of couture decided to design a collection for the streets. Although Karl is a long-year creative director of Chanel, the fashion house won’t be involved in the collaboration. Karl’s eponymous label teamed up with Vans on a capsule collection. This is not the first time for Karl to design sneakers. His label offers a variety of trainers, loafers, and pumps.
Vans x Karl Lagerfeld collaboration resulted in 12-piece capsule collection of sleek black sneakers. Without a doubt, Karl designed the new It sneakers of the season. These sophisticated black designs will make you want to ditch your colorful summer sneakers as soon as possible. The sneakers channel Karl’s “evolving design aesthetic with iconic elements from his timeless career.” Lagerfeld upgraded some of the Vans classics. To be more specific, Karl took over Vans‘ Old Skool, Sk-8 Hi, and Classic Slip-On and infused them with his signature design aesthetic. He mixed his recognizable motifs like boucle fabric, K-quilted letter, his profile and Chanel’s tweed with Vans’ checkerboard print.
The Old Skool and Sk-8 sneaker styles are very popular at the moment, so the timing for the collection was just perfect. The slip-on sneakers in this collection are covered with Karl Lagerfeld’s tiny profiles and look insanely cool. The color palette is simple and features only a black, white and gray color.
Besides sneakers, the Karl Lagerfeld x Vans capsule includes bomber jacket, leather backpack, cap and graphic tees. As expected the tees feature the designer’s profile. The profile is just a small detail incorporated under the letter K. The pieces are timeless but they’ll sure be in the center of the attention once the biggest trendsetters get their hands on them.
Vans x Karl Lagerfeld collection will launch on September 7, on the same day the New York Fashion Week starts. The pieces will be available at selected Karl Lagerfeld boutiques and Vans stores. The collection will also launch on karl.com and vans.com. The items will cost between $40-$300. This capsule collection is a dream come true for those who can’t wait to flaunt Karl’s designs on the streets.

Karl Lagerfeld Paris and supermodel Stella Maxwell teamed up on a classy ad campaign. The inspiration and the theme for the campaign came from Lagerfeld’s favorite city. He has shown on many occasions that The City of Lights is an endless source of inspiration for his work. In the shots, Stella is transformed into a stylish and elegant Parisian girl.
“European elegance walks with a contemporary edge‚Äö√Ñ√∂‚àö√ë‚àö√Üall with the designer’s signature wit and insouciance.’- states the official press release for the campaign.
The pictures were taken by Daniel Jackson. This was quite a surprise, knowing that Lagerfeld prefers to shoot his own campaigns. The Fall 2017 collection delivers many unique and chic designs, that are all in Karl’s recognizable style. His love for masculine figures and cuts is still present but is softened with some feminine details.
“We shot [the campaign] in New York with Daniel Jackson. We recreated Paris. The team had set up a whole projection to simulate the city lights, the iconic monuments and all the biggest historical places in Paris. It was pretty rad. It’s a nice little take from being in the city in the city itself.’- Stella told InStyle.
In the ad, Stella is standing in front of a projected screen and moves simultaneously to the catchy music in the background. The projected images show the biggest and most popular landmarks in Paris. The supermodel is dressed in pieces from Karl’s collection and looks like a born and raised Parisian. The striking black and white strapless dress is definitely a statement-making piece. Aside from the astonishing clothes, Karl Lagerfeld Paris offers high-quality bags, shoes, and accessories for Fall 2017.
“Karl knows how to design for the modern girl. You’re so comfortable in Karl Lagerfeld’s collection; comfortable yet elegant and still very cool. He’s always one step ahead of the trends. He knows how to keep it tomboyish but still feminine.’- Stella explained.
During the last Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week, Karl received La Medaille Grand Vermeil De la Ville de Paris. This medal represents the city’s highest honor. Anne Hidalgo, the mayor of Paris presented the award and gave a very empowering speech. She thanked the great Lagerfeld for his work and continuous achievements for the city.
Atelier Swarovski is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year. For Fall 2017, the jewelry brand collaborated with the designer Jason Wu. Karlie Kloss, who is a global ambassador for Swarovski and a good friend of Wu, is the model featured in the ads.
“I designed this collection very much with the Jason Wu woman in mind. She’s strong, sophisticated and sensual ‚Äö√Ñ√∂‚àö√ë‚àö√Ü even the campaign is quite sensual, which was shot with Karlie Kloss who is a longtime muse and friend of mine.’- Jason Wu told WWD.
The photographer behind the shoots is Barnaby Roper. Edward Enniful, who is the editor in chief of British Vogue, took care of Karlie’s styling for the campaign. The brand already teased one official picture, that shows Kloss wearing an impressive statement necklace. The necklace is bejeweled with green, orange, and yellow crystals, and is a very classy and glamorous piece of jewelry. On her left index finger, you can notice a beautiful ring, also a part of the upcoming collection.
According to WWD, the Fall 2017 collection will feature amazing necklaces, rings, earrings, bracelets and a clutch. The prices for the designs will range between $149 and $2,990. The complete campaign will be released in September in several different fashion magazines. The luxurious pieces of jewelry will be sold this fall in Swarovski’s stores and online on the brand’s website. The exact launch date is still unknown.
This is actually the second time for Wu to design jewelry for Swarovski. The two brands previously teamed up on a collection back in 2010. In 2012, Jason Wu produced a short documentary film that explained the inspiration and the work behind his Resort 2013 line. The Austrian brand fully supported the designer and his movie. Jason is the favorite designer of many popular celebrities and influencers. He is the go-to designer of the ex-first lady Michelle Obama, actresses Julianne Hough, Diane Kruger and many others. At the moment he is the creative director of his own brand and Boss’s women’s department.
Atelier Swarovski has a rich history of collaborations with many innovative designers including Mary Katrantzou, Karl Lagerfeld, Jean Paul Gaultier and more. Recently the brand teamed up with Rosie Assoulin and Fiona Kotur. Karlie Kloss became Swarovski’s ambassador and spokesperson in May 2016. The model replaced her Victoria’s Secret fellow Miranda Kerr.

One of the most anticipated collections of the year is officially on its way. When Moschino and H&M first announced their collaboration back in April, we all got super-excited.

The news didn’t come as much of a surprise, considering the fact that the Swedish retailer has released lines with names such as Stella McCartney, Erdem, Versace, Alexander Wang, Karl Lagerfeld, Balmain and more.
