Karl Lagerfeld is on a mission for his Signature collection due out in January. He wants to bring unusually chic and overstated pieces to the everyday pocketbook. Brilliant. According to Karl, this has been a long time coming. It’s just taken a while to get collaborators and investors to agree that the market would respond well. Lucky for us, the time has come for Karl to show us his resourceful high fashion skills.
Karl, an 100-piece masstige women’s line priced at about 60 to 300 euros ($95 to $450), and the higher-end Karl Lagerfeld Paris line — priced 300 euros to about 2,500 euros ($411 to $3,425) — will both be introduced on Jan. 25 during Paris Couture Week. The Karl line will then make its debut exclusively on Net-a-Porter, with sales on KarlLagerfeld.com starting Feb. 28, while Karl Lagerfeld Paris will first be sold for Fall 2012. Um, are you as excited as I am?
Get ready. You’re welcome.
