The posthumous collaboration comes after Lagerfeld’s passing in February, capturing his playful and youthful energy through the collection’s use of bold patterns and contrasting tones. The unisex Roma silhouette sees a black leather upper adorned with circular Karl Lagerfeld logos and white polka dots — a color scheme synonymous with the late designer.
The Roma is rounded off with a blue sock liner, Karl Lagerfeld x PUMA co-branding on the tongue and a tonal white and grey foam sole unit. Previous collections between the two saw subtler takes on PUMA classics, such as a Lagerfeld-approved black and white PUMA Suede from FW18.
The women’s Roma Amor elevates the classic Roma design with a thick "KARL LAGERFELD" branded sole and all-over circular Lagerfeld branding. Its satin-finished upper is again adorned in white polka dots and is complemented by millennial pink branding and interior lining.
In other news, The Met has collaborated with the late fashion designer and more to release a line of new collectible merchandise, following this year’s camp theme.
