A Karl Lagerfeld and Olivia Palermo collection is coming. Olivia Palermo has announced that she has designed a capsule collection under Karl Lagerfeld’s eponymous label.
The 33-year-old fashion influencer took to her Instagram to share the first look at the collaboration, wearing a black leather jacket with the phrase ‘Karl State of Mind’ across the front, which also features the inscriptions ‘Forever Karl’ and ‘KarlxOlivia’, paying tribute to the legendary designer.
Palermo revealed that she wanted to stay true to Karl’s signature Parisian style, but wanted to add her own ‘feminine’ touch.
She said: “Our collection focuses on universal wardrobe essentials like a leather biker jacket, white button-down shirts and tuxedo suiting.
“I wanted to play with Karl’s iconic Parisian classics, and add my own touch that’s eclectic and feminine. I used my travels and experiences in different cultures to inform my edit, to ensure its wearability from Paris to New York and beyond.”
The collaboration was announced in February, days before Karl’s death at 85.
The collection also includes skinny-fit biker pants, bouclé shorts with satin piping, a sports bra, a tailored suit and technical leggings.
Putting her own stamp on Lagerfeld’s logo, Palermo has created T-shirts and sweatshirts feturing exclusive rhinestone designs, representing her silhouette alongside Karl’s.
The star’s selection – Karl Lagerfeld Styled by Olivia Palermo – will launch on June 27 at Karl Lagerfeld stores and at karl.com and oliviapalermo.com
