Karl Lagerfeld announces childrenswear collection

Karl Lagerfeld

Fashion's most influential and most respected designer is adding another string to his bow with a clothing line for kids, launching Spring 2016.

The Karl Lagerfeld brand will introduce two seasonal junior collections per year, featuring apparel and accessories for newborn through to 16 years.

Most designers would have their work cut out for them if they had to produce eight collections a year for Chanel, along with a host more for Fendi. Not to mention menswear and premium fragrances for his namesake label, but there is simply no stopping Karl Lagerfeld.

By expanding the range of his eponymous brand to include pint-sized designs, Lagerfeld gives a whole new meaning to the concept of downsizing.

His first kidswear collection will retail worldwide through a global license agreement with Groupe CWF -- an international leader in luxury children's fashion -- with key markets including Europe, the Middle East and Korea.

"The Karl Lagerfeld kidswear collection presents a unique opportunity to share our cool, iconic DNA with a wider audience," said Pier Paolo Righi, CEO and President of the Karl Lagerfeld brand.
