The cuts of the womenswear line imply a wide range of different styles: they are ranging from skinny, straight, boyfriend, boyfriend, flare to jogger fits. Therefore you can pick your favourite cut, depending your own style preference. One of our favourite pieces of this line is a womenswear denim suit that is seductively shining. That effect underlines the sophisticated approach of this piece. Sophisticated. smooth. Slightly sporty. The flare cut of the trousers gives the outfit its unique approach. When injecting this piece into your business wardrobe, you will certainly add a model that is one of a kind. However it can still be worn for severe occasions, such as business meetings. For those of you who prefer it rather classier, there is a dark wash denim suit that teams up with a tailored trousers and a matching blazer. Apart of that, the range of garments for leisure time activities is a wide one: denim jackets, cool shirts and shorts, moto-inspired biker jackets- to name only a few of our favourite picks.
The colour choice comprises, matching the collections’ theme, a lot of denim- inspired hues. However also a bunch of other nuances are repeatedly applied, for example scarlet, lime green, sheer white, pewter and night black. The eye- popping, fluorescent stitchings appear in pink, green, orange and yellow. Worth of mentioning is the detail-awareness of this collection: for example the “ikonik” Karl cartoon application out from the black pocket is inspiring to observe and makes these looks incredibly unique.
The favourite menswear picks contain of jeans, outerwear and shirts. For your contemporary business look, there is a tailored jean jacket with a matching skinny jeans introduced. Both creations are kept in a silvery dark wash. Furthermore also a plenty of leisure time looks, such as jeans and bomber jackets with over- sized logo branding, can be noticed in this collection.
KARL LAGERFELD DENIM can be purchased in KARL LAGERFELD stores, online at KARL.COM and via a premium distribution network of wholesale partners, from the end of February on.
