Looks like the fashion industry can’t get enough of 2nd generation models.
After making her runaway debut last September during New York Fashion Week, Cindy Crawford’s daughter, Kaia Gerber is making headlines.
The 16-year-old model is officially teaming up with Karl Lagerfeld to design her own capsule collection.
The news was announced Tuesday on Karl Lagerfeld’s official Instragram with a pic a Gerber captioned, “#KARLLAGERFELD is proud to announce it is partnering with the most-wanted model @kaiagerber, to introduce the “KARL LAGERFELD x KAIA” capsule collection in Fall 2018.”
According to WWD, Gerber has been working on a line of ready-to-wear and accessories including footwear, sunglasses and jewelry. Her designs are described as a mix of West Coast casual style and Lagerfeld’s Parisian chic aesthetic.
“When Karl first told us his idea to collaborate with Kaia, we were all excited by the incredible potential and power of bringing their two worlds together,” said Pier Paolo Righi, chief executive officer of Karl Lagerfeld, in a statement. “We have been working intensely over the last months with Kaia in LA and at our studio in Paris. It was exciting to see her clear vision, passion and engagement, and the collection will definitely inspire many young women.”
The collection will hit stores in September.
