Karl Lagerfeld is launching a new, affordable “rock n’roll” inspired womenswear line called Karl in January 2012. The collection will be exclusively sold online atNet-a-porter.
Karl: " It's my today's taste and style and a reflection of how I think a great number of people would like to be dressed now. I just want not too expensive clothes that people may like and perhaps want to wear. That was my concept for a long time but my business partners in the past wanted to be like Chanel or Fendi without putting behind what is needed to be like that." (www.wwd.com)
In September this year 55DSL launch an exclusive collaboration with creative artist from Italy called Kids In Italia. 55DSL tracks down the next generation of Italian street culture ambassadors and explores the environments in which they play.
The Kids In Italia series begins with two short films (made in partnership with VICE), which document these game-changing artists at work.
Lele Saveri, an Italian photographer, shot for Rolling Stone, NME and VICE. The film follows him as he explores and shoots traditional Sicilian festivals for his forthcoming book.
Giulia Centofante and Elisa Bee are DJs from Milan. 55DSL follows them in the build up to a party they’re putting on in the biggest club in Milan.
