Could it be the dream design duo? Designer Karl Lagerfeld has teamed up with face-of-the-moment, Kaia Gerber for a capsule collection which lands next week.

The Karl x Kaia ready-to-wear collection of sporty mix-and-match pieces and accessories is set to team Lagerfeld’s Parisian chic aesthetic with Gerber’s cool LA style. Key pieces include tuxedo blazers, cropped jackets and, of course, little black dresses.

Sixteen-year-old Gerber, who is also the face of the Lagerfeld fall winter 2018 campaign, said of the collaboration:

“I have loved being a part of the creative process and working with Karl is a dream... It has given me a new appreciation for how hard designers work, and how much creativity and thought goes into every collection.”

For his part, Lagerfeld said of his design partner: “Kaia has a youthful, independent attitude that is inspiring.” Even given Gerber's fashion pedigree, being the daughter of a certain Cindy Crawford, launching a collaboration with a designer of Lagerfeld's acclaim the month before your 17th birthday is pretty impressive. 

The collection lands on Karl.com on 30 August and will launch next month. Check out a fall winter 18 behind-the-scenes with Kaia below:
