Ooh la la! We can reveal that designer Karl Lagerfeld is set to launch a new affordable womenswear fashion label called Karl for January 2012 with prices ranging from £52-£390. Karl told trade fashion bible Women’s Wear Daily: “I just want not too expensive clothes that people may like and perhaps want to wear.” Oh Karl, that’s music to our ears. We don’t think there’ll be much loungewear in the collection though, as the fashion designer has apparently said in the past: “Sweatpants are a sign of defeat. You lost control of your life, so you bought some sweatpants.” Hmm, somehow we can’t imagine Karl doing dressed-down Sundays, anyway. Karl Lagerfeld’s Karl collection will be available exclusively at Net-a-porter.com, although there are plans for stand-alone stores. We can’t wait!
