Karl Lagerfield is an industry mogul, globally recognised for his unique approach to design and his work with the largest fashion houses in the world. His interpretation of style and seasonal trends continues to put him at the forefront of his profession and his new collection is no exception to this. Having recognised the current popularity of pastel shades, intricate print and nautical referencing, the Lagerfield spring/summer 2012 collection boasts an alternative interpretation of these trends by means of exceptional tailoring.
In a striking lookbook featuring model Jake Davies, the collection appears defined and very cool – acting as the perfect example of sophisticated dressing even during the warmer months.
In keeping with Lagerfield’s consistent use of bold colour, pink, red and blue are often paired with black and white to produce separates that are incredibly versatile. The addition of detailed neck ties, contrasting trims and seasonal prints merely strengthens the edgy and striking looks created.
The pastel pink single breasted blazer is perhaps the most unique item. Relatively simple in its design, when paired with white, black or even navy, the look created appears effortless yet somewhat dramatic – and fit for any summer occasion.
With emphasis placed on a tailored aesthetic, the collection is vivid, fresh and made all the more interesting through the incorporation of experimental layering and detailed accessories.
