In a rather large departure from the last collection, Karl Lagerfeld found this season’s inspiration in the works of Swiss artist Sophie Taeuber-Arp. Her imaginative approach to colour blocking and geometric pairing was beautifully translated onto patchworked outerwear crafted from sheared mink, fox and, most notably, shearling—perhaps the key material of the season. Cleverly contrasted panels on coats and block-printed Puffa jackets gave a new dimension to outerwear.
