Fans of Kaiser Karl’s streamlined designs will be clamoring for his more affordable Karl collection. This temporary storefront showcases the monochrome women’s threads ($69–$900), as well as a small selection for men from the Lagerfeld label ($90–$750). A mirrored runway in the center of the black-and-white space displays 12 of the line’s looks, including viscose graphic tees ($120) adorned with Lagerfeld’s iconic ponytail profile, asymmetrical silk-blend blouses ($200) and two-tone satin Mary Jane ballet flats ($220). Edgy offerings include sleeveless sequined biker dresses with zipper details ($495) and cotton motorcycle jackets ($350). You can also nab Lagerfeld’s signature accessories, such as black-leather fingerless gloves ($65) and leather collars printed with “I only wear the latest thing—it’s my job” ($135). On the men’s racks, discover Lagerfeld collection suits ($750), collared shirts with gunmetal buttons ($140) and cotton V-neck tees (two for $90). You can also purchase photo books by the designer himself, including A German House ($35) and You Can Leave Your Hat On ($25), plus limited-edition Mua Mua knit Lagerfeld dolls ($115).
