Back in January, WWD announced that a Kaia Gerber X Karl Lagerfeld collaboration was set to hit stores in September, and now the shots we’ve all been waiting for have arrived.
The 16-year-old model - who is the daughter of Cindy Crawford and Rande Gerber – worked closely with the French fashion house to release a collection of clothing, jewellery, shoes and other accessories inclujding phone cases, hats, gloves and scarves.
Simply named Karl Lagerfeld x Kaia, the 68-piece line incorporates a Paris-to-LA narrative and was lensed by Bryant Sslava on a palm tree-fringed beach.
Cementing her status as a supermodel, Kaia is pictured by the sea clad in wetsuit-inspired bodysuits, logo t-shirts and hoodies, biker jackets, metallic separates and a whole host of Karl Lagerfeld x Kaia accessories.
Early this year, Pier Paolo Righi, chief executive officer of Karl Lagerfeld, said in a statement, “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.”
“We have been working intensely over the last months with Kaia in LA 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.”
It was definitely worth the wait!
