Karl Lagerfeld‘s capsule collection for Italian label Hogan — Hogan by Karl Lagerfeld — was unveiled during Paris Fashion Week. Hogan, part of the Tod’s Group, has made available a range of ready-to-wear, accessories and reinterpretations by Lagerfeld of iconic Hogan creations. Following along the lines of the film that he created last season for Chanel, Lagerfeld created a lookbook in the form of a short film for the collection. The film stars his male muse, Baptiste Giabiconi and model Magdalena Frackowiak.
The collection comprises six key pieces: sporty nylon jackets, a trenchcoat that turns into a jumpsuit, sneakers with double ankle straps, a trainer-cowboy boot hybrid and two flats bags with multicolored geometric flaps (clutch and messenger) which a shoulder strap that is adjusted into a loop hanging from the cuff. Textures used include parachute silk, leather, suede and tulle, in white, black, navy, sand, cloud and powder.
The unveiling event included celebrity attendees such as Janet Jackson and Rupert Everett, the fashion editor set including Anna Wintour as well as Vogue Italia’s Franca Sozzani, models such as Anouck Lepère, Anja Rubik, Bianca Balti and more.

Stars of the Lagerfeld film created for the collection were also present. The film titled La Lettre circles around a couple quarreling over a mysterious letter received by the woman. Lagerfeld described the approximately 5-minute clip as being “a very French moment,” but with an Italian influence. The film was shot by Lagerfeld in Paris at the Palais de Tokyo and the Rue des Saints-Pères in St. Germain des Près. The film’s goal, Lagerfeld says, is to portray the Hogan by Lagerfeld woman, “frank, daring, proud, impetuous“.
