Breaking News: Karl Lagerfeld to Launch Affordable Streetwear Line ‘Karl’ Jan. 2012 (Get the Scoop Inside!)

Karl Lagerfeld’s no newbie to whipping up affordable high-fashion capsule collections for the masses to enjoy. Back in 2004, Lagerfeld teamed up with H&M, designing a 30-piece line that blessed 800 stores worldwide. The famed couturier of iconic French label, Chanel, just announced that on Jan. 25th, he will debut his rock ’n’ roll-inspired Karl collection.

Targeted at women in their early 20s, the 100-piece denim and leather line, will retail from about $95-$450. Not exactly cheap but it is merely a fraction of what his eponymous premium offerings go for. The line is said to house a great mix of “street attitude” and “timeless chic” separates, pieces that will ultimately blend well in any true StyleBlazers wardrobe. Lagerfeld used the words “street” and “rock” to sum up the brands style aesthetic. We’re itching to see sketches…

The highly anticipated Karl ready-to-wear will be available for purchase exclusively on Net-a-porter and Mark your calendars.

“I just want not too expensive clothes that people may like and perhaps want to wear.”

“It’s my today’s taste and style and a reflection of how I think a great number of people would like to be dressed now.”
