>> Karl Lagerfeld will debut his one-off Hogan by Karl Lagerfeld capsule collection on Oct. 2 during Paris Fashion Week, with a film he conceived of and captured for the occasion to be screened at the presentation.
But he will not follow up with his signature Karl Lagerfeld collection's fashion show the next day, as was previously scheduled: the presentation has been cancelled, and the Karl Lagerfeld line will be realigned as more commercial, with less involvement from Lagerfeld. The collections will be sold in showrooms in Paris and Milan. Lagerfeld is instead working on a new "masstige" ready-to-wear collection, expected to be ready for Fall 2011, which will be sold online. The Lagerfeld company said negotations are under way “for the distribution and production of the designer’s new vision,” focused on the idea of "mass elitism."
