Karl Lagerfield Eyewear Creates a Chic Look
He walks into the room, and the noise softens to but a whisper; instantly you recognize him. Maybe it’s the small and thin build, the oversized white starched shirt collar, the black sunglasses or the snowy hair that gave him away: maybe it’s his aura of confidence as he strolls past you.
He is Karl Lagerfield, the impetus behind big and powerful design houses like Chanel, Fendi and Chloe, but also the creator of his own line fashion line that he describes as, “intellectual sexiness.”
As a collector of over 300,000 books, a speaker of several languages and an ability to set trends rather than follow them, Lagerfield knows what he is talking about, and he knows how to create the look.
Born and raised in Germany, Karl Lagerfield studied design in Paris, and then began working in the fashion industry there. He was among the first designers to create plunging backs on dresses, revealing necklines, shorten skirts to the miniskirt length and experiment with using fur to trim clothing around the neckline and wrists.
No stranger to controversy, his risk-taking in fashion led to the creation of his own unique design style of “intellectual sexiness,” where he could experiment with a variety of materials, designs and ideas for his brand. Lagerfield combines the best of design trends across centuries, such is his high-necked collars, and combines them in novel ways for modern style.
Lagerfield is noted particularly for his ability to merge classic design with contemporary fashion, and this is every bit as evident in his line of designer eyewear as it is in his other fashion lines. He is a master of juxtaposition, with a keen sense of combining the traditional with the avant-garde.
Karl Lagerfield eyewear allows the wearer to make a bold fashion statement, one that he himself subscribes to daily with his black sunglasses that he wears everywhere. His available eyewear frames include many different shapes from which to choose, and the frames are available in a variety of materials and colors as well.
Even the temporal arms on Karl Lagerfield eyeglasses offer a multitude of choices for the savvy dresser, including metal and resin, or a combination thereof.
Look to Karl Lagerfield for fresh interpretations of the aviator, cat eye and wayfarer frames. While some of the frames are deceptively simple in design, others play on geometric patterns, such as the oversized round frames that combine with smaller geometric elements in the temporal arms. For example, some of his frames combine a curb chain design embedded in the temporal arms of large square sunglasses frames.
The beauty of Karl Lagerfield sunglasses and eyewear is that these fashion accessories are appropriate for men and women. Their unisex design makes it possible for anyone to appear “intellectually sexy” no matter their travels may lead them.
