THE SUIT OF THE SPRING-SUMMER 2018
Broad shoulders, a nipped-in waist, and sharp lines: the suit of the Spring-Summer 2018 collection reveals a new silhouette. The iridescent ivory tweed jacket and skirt are trimmed with twisted braid. The structured jacket with a mandarin collar offers a clean, pared-down look. The fastenings are invisible, the pockets discreet, and the play of seams subtle: Karl Lagerfeld has stripped back the ornamentation to foreground the lines of the garment. The slightly flared three-quarter-length sleeves show off the stacked bracelets. The hem of the skirt falls halfway down the thigh, skimming the top of the transparent thigh boots.
