Karl Lagerfeld has entered into a multi-year licensing agreement with Overland Shoes for the design and distribution of Karl Lagerfeld men’s and women’s footwear in Europe and the Middle East. The first collection will launch for the Fall ’17 season, with deliveries in-store from June 2017.
Karl Lagerfeld footwear will feature signature design details that appear across all of the brand’s ready-to-wear and accessories collections. Reflecting the brand’s accessible-luxe vision, the footwear will be largely manufactured in Italy using premium quality leathers and materials.
“We are continuously expanding our offering as a fashion lifestyle brand, and our licensing agreement with Overland Shoes represents a fantastic opportunity to grow our footwear collections in Europe and the Middle East,” said Pier Paolo Righi, CEO of Karl Lagerfeld. “Overland’s strong experience in the licensed footwear business make them an ideal partner to elevate the footwear brand and to reach new consumers.”
Key retail partners will be approached in September 2016 with the first collection presentation planned for after December 10, 2016. Design teams from both brands will work in close collaboration in creating collections under the artistic direction of Karl Lagerfeld.
