Every autumn, we are promising ourselves: this time, I will find a way to look chic throughout the winter. But, in the end, frost takes over the chicness. In the moment of despair and despond, fashion rescue is coming to save us from the mistakes we might have done in the name of style.
So, how to go with the weather flow and not lose style in the temperature fluctuations? This season, Maison Karl Lagerfeld is showcasing female energy by returning to the past. From Queen Anne to '90s power dressing, the time machine of style is represented in suits, jackets, and trousers.
The question is not only about what to wear under - outerwear plays a key role, too. Oversized cocoon coats, velvet capelets, modern ponchos, and technical trench coats are the true form of keeping yourself warm, but still fabulous. There is also a masculine influence in pinstripe suiting, a full leather dress, and a sweater-cape silhouette with antique embroidery detail.
As for accessories, clutches are catching the whole attention. What is more elegant than a lady in a coat, holding her purse close to her heart? Especially when the bag is an important part of the outfit. Iconic snake and croc prints alongside with fuchsia are the mood boosters during gloomy winter days.
The Autumn 2020 collection further includes a capsule inspired by Karl Lagerfeld’s archive designs from the 1990s. The iconic pieces have been reimagined with new hemlines and modern fabrics, as a tribute to his resounding creativity.
