Between designing helicopters, collaborating with Snoop Dogg, and issuing preposterous pronouncements on everything from Adele’s weight to prostitution (he’s in favor, in case you were wondering), it’s easy to forget that Karl Lagerfeld actually designs clothes.
In addition to his coveted collections for Chanel, he also designs the lower-priced Karl Lagerfeld line featuring youthful, glamorous pieces in a Karl-approved palette of black, white, and silver — color is so passé, hmm? And while his Chanel designs bring to mind the elegant allure of Coco herself, the inspiration for his diffusion line is ... well, himself. High, ornamental collars and fingerless black leather gloves directly channel Karl’s brand of eccentric glamour.
For the true Kaiser fan, there’s also a plethora of Karl merch featuring his ponytailed visage on T-shirts, tote bags, and even iPhone cases. Click through for our 10 favorite elegantly edgy pieces sure to earn you the Kaiser smirk of approval.
