A World of Its Own
Karl Lagerfeld’s brand new shoe collection for women and men will now be on display at the forthcoming GDS. The styles are described as being iconic, luxurious, creative, hip and affordable. They are developed, produced and distributed as part of a licence agreement with British footwear specialist Overland Shoes. Deliveries go to retailers in Europe and the Middle East.
Karl Lagerfeld is a world of its own, a global guru, a force of nature, the king of the here and now, the symbol of style, the spirit of fashion. He is cultivated, cosmopolitan, inter-cultural and extremely creative. These and similar words are used to describe the famous German designer and his brand new shoe line in the Presenter.pdf.
It was announced in September 2016: Karl Lagerfeld has concluded a multi-annual licence agreement with the British footwear specialist Overland Shoes Ltd. for manufacturing its women’s and men’s shoe lines for European and Middle East markets. The lines are designed in close cooperation between the teams of both companies with Karl Lagerfeld acting as creative director. The style is influenced by the current ready-to-wear and accessories collections. Overland Shoes is in charge of development and distribution. Fine leather and other premium-quality materials are used. Production takes place in Italy for the most part. The shoes are luxurious while prices are said to be affordable.
The first collections for Autumn/Winter 2017/18 will be exhibited at GDS in Düsseldorf from 7 to 9 February. Deliveries to specialist retailers will start in June 2017. Furthermore, the shoes will be available via the web shop Karl.com and at the physical Karl Lagerfeld stores.
