Fashion house Karl Lagerfeld announced their collaboration with supermodel, actress, activist, and Karl’s muse Amber Valletta on the Spring 2021 conscious accessory collection. The collection will be created with innovative and sustainable materials sourced with minimal ecological impact. The KARL LAGERFELD X AMBER VALLETTA collection will include a special edition K/Kushion bag, inspired by Lagerfeld‘s cushion, that designer carried with him on his travels, ever since his childhood. K/Kushion will be available in two eco-friendly material options.
More than five years ago, Amber and I started discussing the possibility to jointly develop a sustainable project. We were not ready back then, but continuously kept this objective on the radar. I’m so excited to now bring Amber on board as a sustainability collaborator, to work on such a project and be able to benefit from her great insights and our shared passion for environmental sustainability. Amber and Karl worked together for many years, and she is a true member of the KARL LAGERFELD family. – Pier Paolo Righi, CEO of KARL LAGERFELD.
Karl and I had so much history together, and I’m excited to be partnering with his namesake brand for a project that’s so meaningful to us both. When I received the first proposals for the co-branding and saw our names together, I was very touched and even emotional. The K/Kushion bag is such a versatile style, and I love how ours will be made with innovative materials and respect for the environment. – Amber Valletta.
The profits generated from the sale of the KARL LAGERFELD X AMBER VALLETTA K/Kushion will be donated to a charity that supports the goals of the Fashion Pact. The collection will launch in March 2021 at KARL LAGERFELD stores worldwide, plus on KARL.COM, Zalando and more.
