Karl Lagerfeld has joined forces with sportswear and athleisure brand Puma to create a special capsule collection which will include a special version of the Suede sneaker in honor of its 50th anniversary. The collection will also include apparel for men and women. It’s been a busy year for Lagerfeld who also recently collaborated with Christofle and ModelCo.
To women, this collection offers cropped tops, and a jumpsuit based on an archival Puma tracksuit. Men can choose from a slim-fit hoodie, matching sweatpants and logo T-shirts. Accessories include a backpack, shoulder bag and baseball cap sport.
The standout items are the two pairs of unisex Suede sneakers which are inspired by Karl Lagerfeld’s personal style. The designer is known for his black suits and sunglasses, so one pair of sneakers replicated the tuxedo look using contrasting black and white graphics while the other pair features cutesy removable sunglasses. The tux inspired pair is worth purchasing, especially if your style involves a casual/formal mash-up.
The collection launches worldwide on October 19.
