The cuts are immaculate, the colors are soft, and the result is a collection that's simultaneously ethereal and completely modern. Karl Lagerfeld's 2011 Spring/Summer looks balance light-as-air confections with the structure of jackets, tailored trousers, and the label's signature tweed. Among the standouts are silvery, metallic suits in sheer fabrics; a delicate, floral, and bow-adorned baby-doll dress over pants; and pointy-toe flats paired with everything from skinny pants to a halter-style maxi dress. The feel is deliciously girlie — ballerina-inspired, but still grown up; a balancing act that Karl delivers flawlessly, as you'd expect. Click through for all the gorgeous looks.
