KARL LAGERFELD Launches ‘Cara Loves Karl’ Capsule Collection

Founded by the late Karl Lagerfeld, the brand launched a uni-sex collection designed by his dear friend and colleague Cara Delevingne. The capsule embodies the mutual philosophies and passions the two shared during their friendship. With a bold look featuring a gender-neutral design, transformability and subtle customization, it gives the wearer the freedom to express themselves without limits. To symbolize the shared values ​​of the two, the collection uses sustainable materials and has an inclusive size range from XXS to XXL.

The brand, KARL LAGERFELD, celebrates the innovation and creativity of its late founder by presenting ready-to-wear for everyone, as well as bags, accessories, footwear and more. “I am so proud of the collection I have created together with the incredibly talented team at KARL LAGERFELD,” says Cara Delevingne. “Karl has been, and continues to be, an extremely important influence in my life and I am honored to have created this collection in his name. I think Karl would be very proud of the sustainable, genderless direction we took, and I like to imagine that even he would wear some of the pieces. I can’t wait to see how people wear all the different pieces we’ve created.”

Collection staples include timeless tailoring featured in suits, shirts and tuxedo blazers as well as cutting-edge design through two-pieces and removable accessories. The denim separates can be paired seamlessly with casual jerseys, logo tees or premium oversized sweats made from organic and recycled materials. All gender-neutral accessories — including the bag, purse, beanie and belts — are made from eco-friendly materials like recycled nylon and organic cotton. The campaign shows Delevingne and Lagerfeld alongside other models as avatars in a digital 3D playground.

15 exclusive CARA LOVES KARL stores will appear worldwide, including locations in Milan (via Alessandro Manzoni), Los Angeles (The Grove) and New York (Wooster Street). In Paris, the capsule will occupy the iconic atrium of the Galeries Lafayette Champs-Élysées, with an immersive digital display.

The CARA LOVES KARL by KARL LAGERFELD collection is now available in branded stores, online and at selected premium wholesale partners worldwide.
