Kaia Gerber, the 16-year-old daughter of Cindy Crawford has been plucked by Karl Lagerfeld to create a capsule collection for his eponymous line, reports WWD.

With a global launch planned in Karl Lagerfeld stores and online at Karl.com and with select wholesale partners, the Karl Lagerfeld x Kaia collection consist of ready-to-wear and accessories, including footwear, sunglasses and jewellery. The line is described as blending Lagerfeld’s Parisian chic aesthetic and Gerber’s signature West Coast casual style, which has garnered her 2.7 million followers on Instagram.

Lagerfeld singled out Gerber as a rising talent months before her breakout season in September, which saw her walk the catwalk for 18 brands, including her debut at Calvin Klein, Prada, Saint Laurent and Versace. She ended it with an honour most seasoned models would die for: Opening the Chanel show for Lagerfeld.

Their capsule collection proves that their bond actually began off the runway, even before Paris Fashion Week. According to Pier Paolo Righi, CEO of the Karl Lagerfeld line, they’ve actually been “working intensely over the last months with Kaia in LA and at our studio in Paris,” with Gerber apparently showing off her “clear vision, passion and engagement.”

Righi also added that working with Garber was Lagerfeld’s idea: “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,”

Breakout model of the spring/summer 2018 season and now fully-fledged designer. This teenager is proving to be an unstoppable force.
