Karl Lagerfeld to Launch Lower-Priced Line

Designer Karl Lagerfeld recently announced that he would be launching a lower-priced clothing line which will debut in early 2012.

According to WWD, the Karl Collection is being described as “street” and “rock”, and is targeted towards women in their late teens to early 20s. The collection is slated to include cocktail dresses, detachable collars, fingerless gloves and lots of denim and leather items, which are all signature Lagerfeld pieces.

Natalie Massenet, founder and executive chairman of The Net-a-Porter Group, described the collection:

“It’s a very strong, well-edited collection with a great mix of street attitude and timeless chic. It also is an entire wardrobe that mixes and matches well with itself. While it has great contemporary price points, it has enough edge to resonate with a sophisticated fashion consumer who is looking for great new items at any budget.”

The 100-piece women’s collection will debut on Net-a-Porter starting on Jan. 25, with sales on starting on Feb. 28. Items will be priced between $95 to $450 and while the line is not exactly poor college student budget-friendly, it’s certainly less expensive than Chanel!

    TBH, I wasn’t so impressed with the editing for Lagerfeld’s Macy’s collection, so I don’t think I’ll be purchasing very much from this collection.

    I actually thought KL x Macy’s was pretty chic, although it was somewhat surprising that it didn’t sell out as fast as other collabs. I’m interested in seeing some photos of the Karl Collection!

    I do not know if I will be buying anything, but I am really excited to see the collection.

    Although the prices are cheap, I would rather save up for Chanel or Fendi, as this line isn’t really that inexpensive.
    I never really liked affordable brands, the excitement of holding a real designer item is worth the money.

    I’m not a big Chanel fan, but I’ll probably take a look at it anyway. I didn’t buy anything from the Macy’s collection, and I doubt I will with this one either. I like the idea of the lower cost collections though.

    It sounds pretty cool. I’ll definitely take a look at it, but I won’t be purchasing anything. $95 for one item is WAY beyond my budget.

    I think it’s cool that all sorts of designers are partnering with Target, Macy’s, and H&M, yet I feel like most of the lines are still over-priced. I LOVED one of the Karl Lagerfeld for Macy’s dresses but it was the most simple one and it was still $120 for fabric that wasn’t worth it.
    I know they are world class designers that insist on lush fabrics and complicated shapes and won’t compromise their vision, but I think they should really work on lowering their prices further.

    Once love for guys. Why is it so hard to find good fashion for men in America? We care how we look too!
