As you may have noticed, Paris Fashion Week is already underway, with sartorial treats being delivered by Balmain and Balenciaga already today. And the fun continues as Karl Lagerfeld presents his latest collection for Hogan in the French capital any. minute. now. And guess what? Grazia Daily has been given an exclusive sneak preview of the Autumn Winter 2012 campaign. Yeep!
Have a scroll through the gallery above and you'll see the gorgeous Saskia De Brauw striking a fierce pose for Unkle Karl. As we've previously reported, Herr Lagerfeld is currently OB-sessed with the stunning model-of-the-moment, having already shot her for Chanel's Spring Summer 2012 campaign as well as the Resort 2012 collection. With that fusion of Stella Tennant-meets-Freja Beha attitude, we can hardly blame him.
So it's unsurprising to see Saskia's androgynous prettiness looks fabulous through Karl's lens and complements Hogan's urban-chic aesthetic — see her working lashings of black and white patent leather covered in pyramid-shaped studs. And the puffa trend we spotted at London Fashion Week is still going strong — note the luxury label's interpretation of this season's super-cosy jacket shape.
As for the accessories, we're seriously coveting that black leather tote with an embossed 'H' and a zipped pocket. Plus, this season, the designer is reinterpretating the iconic Hogan InteraKtive footwear to make the high-top trainers that much cooler.
What with also designing a million collections this year for Chanel, Chanel Couture, Fendi and his Karl Lagerfeld label, not to mention the hugely-successful KARL launch last month, we honestly don't know where he finds the time...
