Karl Lagerfeld - quite understandably - had an entourage as talented as he was, not least including longtime friend and editrix, Carine Roitfeld. Onetime model, stylist, journo - and muse for Tom Ford - Carine's edgy influence always captivated Karl, meaning this is the perfect posthumous partnership.
“I am blessed and thankful for having had the opportunity to work with Karl for so many years - we shared not only a professional relationship but a deep friendship,” Carine explained of the announcement that she will be working on the brand's three upcoming seasons, debuting for Spring 2020.
“He will always be a legend, who redefined the notions of fashion, photography and celebrity,” Carine continued. And really.... if your friends don't refer to you as a legend, are they really even your friends?
Karl Lagerfeld's CEO, Pier Paolo Righi explaines that a powerful design team is already in place established by Karl himself, including Design Director Hun Kim who was directly appointed by him. Combined with Carine’s eye, we have no doubt that Karl’s iconic aesthetic will be brought to life as if he never left.
