Karl Lagerfeld Presents Its New Spring-Summer 2023 Menswear Collection
KARL LAGERFELD announced its Spring-Summer 2023 Men’s collection. A vibrant look into the possibility of new worlds, the collection fuses the brand’s classic codes with Mars-inspired fantasy and an ever-growing focus on sustainable style approaches. The result is flawlessly translated into a premium assortment of smart-casual pieces that offer a sartorial escape from the everyday. These include summery takes on denim, suiting and the holiday-adjacent HOTEL KARL capsule. The selection features a warm, Mars-inspired color palette and a range of styles that run the gamut from timeless tailoring to modern casual.
The season opens with an ultra-contemporary take on menswear essentials which plays on fabrics, textures and colors. A classic neutral palette of cream, navy and khaki is enriched with rusty, red-plant shades and pops of vivid turquoise. Material mixing explores matte and shiny finishes and a classic camouflage motif is reworked with natural tones across outerwear, T-shirts, jersey sweaters and pants.
Transitional spring weather calls for premium outerwear, including a timeless trench in a neutral hue and a modern khaki jacket with a utilitarian feel, featuring a detachable harness pocket that can be worn as a separate piece or accessory. Fashion and function are further combined in a two-in-one black formal jacket, which features detachable zip sleeves that instantly transform it into a waistcoat for an alternative look. Meanwhile, knitwear is reimagined with a sleek ‘70s vibe in seasonal tones of burnt sienna and rust orange.
Summer style is flawlessly captured on a smart-casual blouson jacket and matching pants in a cool denim look with a light, linen feel. Summer suiting also gets a sharp, monochrome refresh in a coordinated seersucker look that adds texture while remaining light and airy. For casual weekends, the HOTEL KARL capsule features a sophisticated archive-inspired logo and vintage lettering that appears across luxe sweatsuits and laidback essentials, including a range of black canvas bags.
As the heat rises, lemon and lime creamsicle shades provide a refreshing treat for high summer, including the new fashion-forward assortment of Ikonik 2.0 separates made with more sustainable dyes. Laser-printed denim levels up casual summer wardrobes with a subtle, all-over logo pattern that appears across coordinated looks and essential accessories.
This season’s accessories include the new K/Kanvas group, which offers an elevated everyday selection of sleek bags that combines durable cotton canvas with smooth leather in neutral shades. Perfect for style-savvy everyday looks, the new K/Denim group features a subtle all-over logo pattern on cue with the main collection. The K/Kover group is designed for young professionals with an active lifestyle. Made in a premium, water-repellent material with a sleek design, key shapes include a weekender, a bum-bag and a small crossbody. The versatile, multi-pocket K/Mars bag offers utilitarian style with the season’s on-theme colors, while the RSG group is updated with new hues and silhouettes.
