NEW YORK, Jan 5 — The designer’s ‘Lagerfeld’ and ‘Karl Lagerfeld’ labels are set to be combined as a unified ‘Karl Lagerfeld’ collection that will be unveiled at the menswear trade show Pitti Uomo 93 this January, WWD reports.
The showcase will also reportedly feature a capsule collection designed by Lagerfeld’s personal assistant Sebastien Jondeau, dubbed ‘Karl Lagerfeld Curated by Sebastien Jondeau.’
Jondeau’s collection will span casual and formal ready-to-wear pieces, as well as footwear and accessories. The series includes t-shirts and varsity jackets, as well as cashmere sweaters and tuxedos — all inspired by his own personal style.
“My style is very urban, yet it can also be quite strict — strict and chic, since I can go from wearing sweats and a pair of Jordans to a three-piece suit,” he told WWD. The collection is set to launch in Karl Lagerfeld stores in August 2018.
Pitti Uomo 93 runs January 9-12 in Florence, Italy, with the upcoming edition of the show set to focus on the ‘athleisure’ phenomenon, in addition to showcasing a new generation of international creatives. Highlights this month will include a film festival theme, as well as exhibitions from guest designers ‘UNDERCOVER by Jun Takahashi’ and ‘TAKAHIROMIYASHITA TheSoloist.’
The iconic Brooks Brothers brand will be hosting a fashion show and exhibition, while Pepe Jeans London will celebrate its 45th anniversary by unveiling a new sustainable development process for the treatment on denim. — AFP-Relaxnews
