This Is How Karl Lagerfeld Celebrates Oktoberfest

We never took Karl Lagerfeld for a big fan of 16-day beer-fueled benders, but apparently he’s more closely aligned with his German roots than we thought.

For the 180th edition of Oktoberfest, the Kaiser is putting his signature spin on the traditional dirndl – the full-skirted, tight-bodiced dress that evolved from farmers’ garb into national costume and go-to uniform for touristy German pubs.

We’re not expecting Karl’s Bavarian flavors to be particularly cheese-heavy, though. WWD reports that his dirndl, white blouse and pinafore will be “done with a rock ‘n’ roll edge and touches of black leather.” See a sketch of the ‘Punk Dirndl’ below, which apparently also features a wide choker necklace with dangling cross.

The capsule collection will debut at his new Munich concept store when it opens in September. It will also be available at his recently-opened Berlin store.
