After a breakout runway season in September, sixteen year-old daughter of Cindy Crawford, Kaia Gerber has scored her first huge design collaboration, and it doesn't get much bigger than Karl Lagerfeld! The model muse has partnered with Lagerfeld to launch a Karl Lagerfeld x Kaia capsule collection that will hit stores in September.

The exclusive collection will blend the Parisian chic aesthetic that Lagerfeld embodies, with Gerber's California-cool style, featuring ready-to-wear and accessories, including footwear, sunglasses and jewellery.

The relationship between Lagerfeld and Gerber is a story of mutual infatuation. Lagerfeld saw Gerber as a rising talent months before her debut runway season. Gerber went on to open Chanel's S/S '18 show in Paris for Lagerfeld - an honour some of her older, more experienced peers have yet to receive - and has since walked for Largerfeld in Chanel's Métiers D'Art.

Is all this sounding a little bit too familiar? Gerber is seemingly following in the footsteps of fellow model and It-girl, Gigi Hadid, who is closing off her fourth Tommy x Gigi capsule with Tommy Hilfiger to be showcased in Milan come February. Look out Hadid, Gerber is coming for your It-girl crown.

The Karl Lagerfeld x Kaia collection will launch globally in Karl Lagerfeld stores, online at Karl.com and in selected stockists.
