Karl Lagerfeld, finding himself insufficiently occupied by running Chanel, designing for Fendi, and bringing the Magnum ice cream to America, is relaunching the namesake clothing brand he suspended a few seasons back. Karl Lagerfeld's new Karl collection will be sold exclusively online. Here's a brief ad to give you an idea of what we're in for. Naturally, there are detachable leather collars, each printed with the message, "I only wear the latest thing, it's my job." The press materials make extensive use of the replace-a-C-with-a-K trope, touting the clothes as "ironiK, artistiK, aKcessible," which has us a little worried that Kris Kardashian's krack legal team is preparing even as we speak to descend on old Karl with a cease-and-desist.
