Karl Lagerfeld is collaborating with Vans and it looks very slick
Finally, a Karl Lagerfeld collection we can afford.
Reckoned to be the "it" runners this autumn, Karl is after teaming up with the famous skater brand to bring you a 12 piece collection. According to Van's senior footwear designer, Angie Dita, the new range is meant to represent "Lagerfeld's evolving design aesthetic with iconic elements from his timeless career."
And that it does. Many pieces have a black leather look with white elements, making them perfect and versatile for copious outfits.
Ranging in styles, the collection has high-tops, runners and the classic slip-on, all available to purchase.
The collection also extends beyond footwear, with graphic tees, a bomber jacket, premium leather backpack, and a cap. We here in Her HQ are currently drooling over the backpack and adding it to our Christmas wish list ASAP.
"When I see the fashion world take references from skate trends or brands, I feel that they are intrigued by the fact that skaters are creatives that set their own rules and code," Dita explained. "There is something intriguing about how skateboarding symbolizes a sense of independence and non-conforming attitude that begins at their youth. They follow their own path" she added.
Vans x Karl Lagerfeld officially launches on September 7 with the line available on both Vans.com and Karl.com. Prices range from between $40 - $300 (€33.60 - €252.40).
