The KARL LAGERFELD X KAIA collection was designed with the model Kaia Gerber. The designs combine Karl’s iconic vision with Kaia’s confident, trend-setting eye for style. A fusion of their two points of view, the new collection brings a fresh, cool-girl touch to Karl’s effortless classics.
The launch of the collection was celebrated at an exclusive event in Los Angeles last night. Co-hosted with REVOLVE and Kaia Gerber, it was held at the REVOLVE Social Club and attended by over 200 VIPs and influencers and included a performance by Kaia’s best friend and singer Charlotte Lawrence.
Hyperrealist, trippy florals and foliage are splashed across dresses and skirts, wide trousers and voluminous blouses in a collection that oozes William Morris… on acid. There are also zebra-print bags, shoes and scarves, primarily made in sustainable materials such as TENCEL® and organic cotton.
“The collection that we created together is a heightened version of nature. We were inspired by British psychedelia, vibrant fabrics from our local Ridley Road Market, and the bohemian mood of the Bloomsbury Group,” says house of Hackney co-founder Frieda Gormley.
Off-White teamed up with Sunglass Hut for eyewear collaboration. Visionary proportions merging street sensibilities and new fashion contexts, plus a clear inspiration from the ’80s. More than shapes: a mix of retro curves, clean and angular lines and surfaces curving inward. Three styles made of extra thick acetate, flat lenses and super strong personality. On-trend color variations and the Off-White™ trade mark, for a look that won’t ever go unnoticed.
Virgil Abloh’s cult fashion label Off-White has collaborated with luxury British footwear brand Jimmy Choo on a capsule collection.
Combining Abloh’s streetwear aesthetic and Choo’s luxury DNA, the resulting styles are equal parts edgy and elegant. The collection officially dropped this week with an exclusive campaign starring DJ and muse Peggy Gou from mytheresa.com.
For Virgil Abloh, Creative Director Off-White, “creative dreams were fulfilled” when he was able to combine “the young exuberance of Off-White and the storied elegance of Jimmy Choo.”
There are bejewelled red carpet-ready stilettos and high-octane floral print boots, but the real stars of the show are the boots and pumps that appear to be wrapped in cellophane.
To debut the collaboration, Off-White and Jimmy Choo have launched a pop-up store at Selfridges, which will run until Sunday March 18. The shoes will also be available to purchase at Harvey Nichols.
“To collaborate with a brand like Off-White allows Jimmy Choo to explore a new avenue and take part in a different conversation,” says Sandra Choi, Jimmy Choo’s Creative Director.
“I love to mix it up by getting together with a different creative mind identifying our synergies and combining our DNA to create a beautiful and surprising collection with unexpected links to the roots of our brand.”

The designs are sold in Stuart Weitzman stores as well as with Moda Operandi and Lane Crawford. The Weitzman SoHo flagship will temporarily transition to a dedicated Gigi Hadid pop-up shop for the holidays. The collection retails from $498 to $598.
“I’ve really been into slides lately and wanted a pair that can take me into fall…no more cold toes! The evil eye is a powerful symbol meant to protect those who wear it from negative energies. It’s emotionally comforting and beautiful and captivating to look at. The bright colors are fun and remind me why we designed these shoes — they represent our commitment to build three additional schools with Pencils of Promise,” Hadid said in a statement. Hadid is also the face of Stuart Weitzman’s fall ad campaign.
The proceeds will again benefit Pencils of Promise, with Stuart Weitzman pledging $105,000 to the charity to build three schools across Ghana, Guatemala and Laos.
