EXCLUSIVE: Karl Lagerfeld Taps Olivia Palermo to Style Fall Looks

PARIS — Karl Lagerfeld is adding a dash of New York glamour to his Paris-based line: the contemporary brand has recruited Olivia Palermo to collaborate on its fall collection.
The influencer will style pieces from the line and cocreate five bespoke designs as part of the partnership, which will run parallel to the brand’s previously announced collaboration with fashion editor Carine Roitfeld, who will also select an edit of fall pieces.
Palermo, whose polished style has made her a regular of international best-dressed lists, brings with her an Instagram following of 5.8 million. A fan of bold prints, bright colors and relaxed suiting, she has previously worked with brands including Piaget, Banana Republic, Pretty Ballerinas, Aquazzura and Nordstrom.
“Being able to collaborate with the visionary and iconic Karl Lagerfeld is truly incredible,” Palermo, the founder and chief creative officer of her own group, said in a statement. “I am so proud to bring our shared vision to life on this project and infuse my own eclectic perspective to Karl’s fall 2019 collection.”
The brand, in turn, described her as “a champion of confidence, entrepreneurship and creativity.” Her selection, under the label Karl Lagerfeld Styled by Olivia Palermo, will launch at Karl Lagerfeld stores, online
