Humour and self-mockery are some of Karl Lagerfeld’s well-known character traits, and that’s showcased through a capsule collection, created in collaboration with illustrator, Tiffany Cooper. After having two successful books published and having featured in a number of leading fashion titles, Cooper is living her dream of collaborating with her “role model” Lagerfeld. She has created a mini-collection of fun ready-to-wear apparel and accessories, showcasing her mordant and yet warm-hearted sense of humour while capturing the designer’s signature style.
You’ll see Karl with his faithful Choupette on an unexpected summer road trip. Tee-shirts and sweatshirts dotted with patches feature images of the couturier executing a frenzied dance before the eyes of the rather nonplussed cat, or facetiously donning a grass skirt while Choupette grabs a ukulele on a Tahitian beach. The duo also plays pretend-we’re-Indians in a summer camp tent before noshing oversized ice cream cones and milkshakes, then sauntering off on roller-skates towards new adventures.
The capsule collection is priced between $50 and $200 and is available at all Karl Lagerfeld boutiques and online at Style Bop since 4th April.
