Karl Lagerfeld has partnered with model Kaia Gerber to introduce an exclusive collection of ready-to-wear and fashion accessories. A fusion of their two points of view, the new collection brings a fresh, cool-girl touch to Karl’s effortless classics.
Karl Lagerfeld’s collaboration with model Kaia Gerber results in “KARL LAGERFELD X KAIA” capsule collection released for Fall -Winter 2018/ 2019 season.

Kaia Gerber put her own twist on the classic handbag, with “K” quilted stitching and a plush velvet finish. In other words: the perfect accessory for a night out.
“When Karl first told us his idea to collaborate with Kaia, we were all excited by the incredible potential and power of bringing their two worlds together,” said Pier Paolo Righi, CEO of Karl Lagerfeld. “We have been working intensely over the last months with Kaia in L.A. and at our studio in Paris. It was exciting to see her clear vision, passion and engagement, and the collection will definitely inspire many young women.”
Kaia made her runway debut at New York Fashion Week Spring Summer 2018, and instantly became the most wanted model after appearing in 18 shows that season. She is the epitome of the social generation model, with over 2.6 million Instagram followers and an off-duty wardrobe that’s captivated street style critics. She is the daughter of iconic supermodel Cindy Crawford.
