The KARL LAGERFELD Fall 2019 collection is a celebration of KARL’s iconic aesthetic, fusing timeless classics with a sophisticated, rock-chic feel. Styles are inspired by masculine influences of military tailoring and historic armour, updated with feminine seaming, pleats and trims. Next to the signature black and white palette there are saturated jewel tones like rich emerald green and intense burgundy; the look is further elevated with perforated leather and textured boucle fabrics.
Casual but sophisticated, this curated offering embraces athleisure style combined with KARL LAGERFELD’s iconic “RUE ST GUILLAUME” address logo. Jackets, knitwear, trackpants and sweatshirts are ideal for pre-and-post workout, while technical leggings and tank tops can be worn for a chic gym session. In accessories, the range features more than a dozen athleisure-inspired styles: a grainy leather bucket bag, a tote, a weekender and a trolley, plus a nylon offering of bum bags, a backpack, a crossbody and a large tote.
Early fall days are all about romantic silhouettes. Seaming details reference a knight’s armour, while soft layers of fabric and peplum cuts create an effortlessly feminine feel. The essential fabric is leather — both real and faux — which appears on a pencil skirt with zipper details, a fringed skirt, a long-sleeved dress, biker pants and iconic moto jackets. Additional key pieces include a poplin shirt with cascading tails, flared trousers, and an athleisure bomber jacket made into a long, pleated dress.
The focus of the styling is on heavy seaming details and structured tailoring with contrast stitching, buckle details and zipper trims, featuring a predominantly monochromatic colour palette and occasional pops of vivid purple and bronze jewel tones.
The collection features a wide assortment of outerwear including down puffer jackets, a tailored full-length coat and a technical down parka, as well as a statement faux fur coat, customised with an all-over striped KARL Logo.
For everyday wear styles are accented with modern volume on shoulders the collection includes a range of cable knit turtlenecks, dresses and cutout sweats for daytime looks. Evening wear pieces feature metallic pleating, liquid-effect fabrics, foiled mesh, eyelets and festive boucle. There’s a wide variety of black dresses with fit-and-flare, bodycon and wrap silhouettes as well as a tuxedo-jumpsuit with zipper details. For casual weekends, there is a range of cozy sweatshirts and hoodies, plus a cashmere-blend “KARL” tunic.
