The greatest hits from the collaboration revisited. fashion — Jun 26
One year ago, the Karl Lagerfeld x Olivia Palermo collection debuted, bringing everyone the duo’s timeless approach to dressing. “I’ve always had admiration for Karl and been a fan of his brand,” said Olivia. “His vision of fashion—pure, elegant, simple—has always resonated with me.” In celebration of the anniversary, OliviaPalermo.com is exclusively rereleasing seven pieces from the collection that embody the uncompromising spirit of enduring style. Here, she shares her takes on the stylish, limited-edition pieces.
The Pleated Plastron Poplin Shirt:
When the idea of working with Karl and his team first came to me, I was wearing one of his signature shirts. Nothing makes me feel better or more empowered than when I’m in one of his crisp menswear-inspired tops.
The Tailored Denim Culottes:
I’m pretty specific when it comes to jeans, but this cropped, wide-leg version feels more dressed up than typical denim. For a real Audrey Hepburn moment, I love wearing them with fancy flats and a cute wicker bag.
The Karl x Olivia Profile Sweatshirt:
I run cold most days, and now indoors with the AC blasting, I love to cozy up in this sweatshirt, which reminds me of wearable portrait art.
The Snap Sleeve Bomber:
For summer nights with a chill, nothing adds lo-fi polish better than a simple bomber. Plus, it pairs easily with sneakers or heels.
The Wide-Leg Snap Pants:
Karl famously said, “sweatpants are a sign of defeat,” but I view these wide-leg versions as a modern-day riff off the tuxedo trouser.
