Fashion brand KARL LAGERFELD unveiled its Spring Summer 2023 Collection that features variety of smart-casual pieces that offer a sartorial escape from the everyday. The collection merges the brand’s codes with Mars-inspired fantasy and sustainable style. It brings an ultra-contemporary take on menswear essentials which plays on fabrics, textures and colors.
“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.” – from Karl Lagerfeld
