The exclusive KARL LAGERFELD X KENNETH IZE capsule collection will be available online and in select KARL LAGERFELD stores.
KARL LAGERFELD has announced the official launch of an exclusive capsule collection with fashion designer Kenneth Ize.
The KARL LAGERFELD X Kenneth Ize capsule collection for Spring-Summer 2021 is a fusion of Nigerian and European styles. Proposed and curated by Style Advisor Carine Roitfeld, the collaboration pairs eye-catching prints with smart silhouettes. The signature black-and-white KARL LAGERFELD palette is combined with bright pops of colour in patterns inspired by traditional aso oke cloth.
Kenneth Ize and KARL LAGERFELD Design Director, Hun Kim, co-created the collection of ready-to-wear, gender-neutral styles and accessories that reflect a sophisticated intersection of two worlds. The result is a glowing celebration of culture and elevated design.
All fabrics used for the accessories, including keychains and a phone bag, are sourced from Nigeria, while the leather complies with stringent environmental and sourcing standards set by the Leather Working Group (LWG). The refined ready-to-wear collection includes a range of tailored separates, knitted tops and pants, flowing silhouettes and sharp, casual pieces that can easily be worn with more sophisticated looks. Key highlights include a black-and-white, swirl-print shirt made from 100% silk; matching pants crafted in a unique, Italian hemp material; bright-hued, vertical- striped sweaters made in a Merino wool-cotton blend; and a beautifully finished, tailored blazer with tonal, topstitch detailing.
“We are thrilled to continue our ongoing collaboration with KARL LAGERFELD and this collection with Kenneth Ize. We have been supporting Kenneth since the beginning, he has a unique point of view and a strong vision that coupled with his desire to celebrate local artisans and support his heritage makes him an incredible partner to continue to build on the legacy of KARL LAGERFELD. With craftsmanship and innovating for the future at its core, it is exciting to be able to bring FARFECTH and Browns customers around the globe this truly unique and timely collection,” said Holli Rogers, Chair Browns and Chief Brand Officer FARFETCH.
The KARL LAGERFELD X KENNETH IZE collection will be available online at KARL.com, FARFETCH.com, Brownsfashion.com, and in the Paris Saint Germain and London Regent Street KARL LAGERFELD stores starting July 7, 2021.
