On Wednesday, Karl Lagerfeld hosted a special event at his Paris HQ to launch his first foray into childrenswear under his eponymous fashion house. Guests nibbled on candy floss and Karl Lagerfeld-stamped marshmellows during the party, which also included a special workshop for kids, including the opportunity to create a special key chain in Lagerfeld's image. 

Karl Lagerfeld's designs – which recently provoked criticism from YSL's Pierre Berge (more on that here) – are now available for little girls and boys from newborn up to 16-years. The lineup features ready-to-wear as well as a few Lagerfeld signatures including his black gloves, a black tie and a special Choupette headband named after his beloved pet cat. 

Children's eCommerce platform Melijoe will be the first exclusive stockist, offering a few selected pieces in December before the collection then rolls out in full to various department stores and multi-brands in January worldwide.
