Leave it to Karl Lagerfeld to create some of the most stunning clothing we have seen this season. Sticking to his personal wardrobe, the collection was mostly black and white, with a few bits of corally oranges. The clothing was beautifully crafted and sculpted; from soft folds and drapes to angular shoulders and collars, Lagerfeld has an understanding of his expensive and luscious fabric. The strength and prominence of the jackets and vests were softened by the high waisted flared/pleated shorts. Unlike the other shorts we have seen this season, Lagerfeld’s shorts were rounder, designed for a woman with some hips and a waist. Towards the end of the collection, actual metal was incorporated into the designs. Yet, it did not feel heavy (as metal normally does), instead it added dazzling detail and light framework to a basic silhouette.

It seems that Lagerfeld was inspired by the “rockstar”. Little details of electric guitars and guitar playing Lagerfelds were added onto sunglasses and bags. It’s almost as if the actual design of the clothing was sculpted to look like certain areas of a guitar. Oh, Lagerfeld…you are my guitar hero.
