KARL LAGERFELD is pleased to announce its Spring-Summer 2022 collection. Building on Karl’s fondness for new beginnings, the new collection invokes a sense of a renewal and cultural reset, while celebrating life in its purest form. Seen as an upgrade to the worlds’ circularity, the collection, known as ‘LIFE 2.0’, draws its inspiration from the basic natural elements: Earth, Air, Fire, and Water. This influence translates across the collection through the selection of prints, fabrics, and color palette, while maintaining a sleek rock aesthetic that offers newness, confidence, and above all, evolution.
The first selection includes a wide range of warm-weather styles with eye-catching prints and elegant, coordinated looks and on-point separates. Inspired by the elements of Earth and Air, this concept comes across through the striking color choice and selection of prints. For womenswear, seasonal patterns include nature-inspired, florals used on lightweight parkas and silk dresses, as well as an exotic zebra print, showcased on a selection of casual and more sophisticated items.
Key looks include an ultra-marine lightweight tailored coat, while the sleek KL-monogram pattern is showcased on select pieces and coordinated pieces. A sleek, faux leather shirt and matching shorts, as well as a faux leather, sleeveless jumpsuit stand out in the assortment. Embroidery techniques and perforated detailing are prominently featured on others, with broderie anglaise pieces, with a true KARL twist, crafted from organic cotton. The selection also includes sharp, seasonal outerwear, knitwear designs, a transformable trench, and tailored looks that work well in or out of the office.
