The Kaiser jumps the bandwagon


A fantastic collection; some very exciting new spring colours (the green/yellow hybrid), eyecatching accessories (the plastic spiked headband) and the sexiness of the sheer trousers is a stroke of genius.


Just one complaint; Isn't it a little late for this Karl? Luella was sending Rayban rip-offs down the runway two seasons ago..

Thanks! And aye, that is the truth. Not too bowled over by the Chanel collection either. :S

i love the sheer trousers...but the rest is done before.

i like the collection though.
although it might be a bit overdone, i still would buy it.
that is, if my budget would permit!
but the runway was a cute contrast to the dark and grungey clothes.

well, Karl is Karl. He can do the worst (Chanel. Ew) as the best (Fendi always looks gorgeous to me).
And I loved this collection!! It's so fun and youthful...very optimistic.

I thought Karl's SS08 collection was okay. The Raybans are getting a bit tired, and like you say, he's a year late with this trend.

Hiya,totally agree with you about the over the top nu-rave scene overshadowing cassette playa's work, his name is Elliot Atkinson. I found him via myspace, you should check out his previous work too, he seems really creative. Oh yeah I'd love to exchange links xx

Karl is a freaking genius.

I love the runway's background too! so colourful.

I don't really like it
Chanel is supossed to be Chanel

I actually HATE anything nu rave

I love the yellow Ray Bans, I think it look kind of cool. Karl Lagerfeld broke my heart with this season's Chanel collection though. Ankle bags, why Karl why?
