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 KarlLagerfeld.com 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!
