Staying true to its identity, the third season of KARL LAGERFELD JEANS combines bold individuality with fluid creativity. Across outspoken washes and playful proportions, the Fall-Winter 2023 collection fuses utility details with ultra-modern sensibility. Sketches and designs from Karl Lagerfeld’s archives are reimagined with vibrant colors, art-inspired graphics and futuristic shapes across ready-to-wear, bags and accessories. The defining look is relaxed with a streetstyle edge that’s effortlessly cool. This is denim viewed through the lens of Karl Lagerfeld’s colorful and future-forward imagination.
With outspoken appeal to a Gen-Z audience, jeans take on new shapes and seaming details, including cutaway-waists, wide-leg silhouettes and denim-on-denim ensembles. Statement puffer coats pair seamlessly with crop tops, knits and hoodies — many of which are topped with high-shine embellishments for a bold, urban edge. Electric, eclectic and made more responsibly, this is the ultimate denim for self-expression.
INTRODUCING THE KLJ MONOGRAM
Making its debut this season is the new KARL LAGERFELD JEANS monogram — a bold graphic that makes an impact across all categories, defining the collection with its sleek geometric style. The hexagonal motif is repeated in an all-over pattern on a double-denim ensemble, while a single monogram logo is added in unexpected sizes, proportions and positions across sweatshirts and t-shirts.
Undoubtedly this season’s hero piece, a puffer jacket is topped with the new house monogram print and is more sustainably made with REPREVE® recycled performance fibers. The jacket perfectly captures the modern utilitarian feel of the collection. Transitioning into fall, the building blocks of an urban wardrobe are rooted in shades of crisp white and fresh blue, most prominent in the season’s signature pattern: a vivid, blurred floral print. Appearing across t-shirts and outerwear, the print perfectly evokes the playful futurism that permeates the line.
This season sees the introduction of the High Rise Taper jeans cut for women. As comfortable as they are cool, this silhouette sits high at the waist and tapers neatly at the ankle. Essential pieces are taken in bold new directions across the line, inviting the wearer to view everyday style from a forward-looking perspective. Statement outwear combines glossy finishes with bold, architectural silhouettes, while coated denim techniques add a sleek feel when combined with classic KARL black.
The KARL LAGERFELD JEANS collection is created in line with the ongoing KARL CARES sustainability journey. For the Fall-Winter 2023 season, 70% of the KARL LAGERFELD JEANS offering carries a KARL CARES hangtag, meaning the style is made with at least 50% more sustainable materials. In this collection, that includes both organic cotton and recycled polyester.
