Karl’s in Charge

What: The sophomore collection for KARL, Karl Lagerfeld’s lower-priced-yet-still-pretty-darned-expensive line, hit Net-a-Porter yesterday. This time around, the fashion guru broke up his signature black-and-white palette with modern, camouflage prints and a flaming orange faux leather mini skirt. Apparel prices range from $85 for a printed racer-back tank to $6,070 for a beaded organza dress. Our pick: an adorable Abbey faux pearl collar for $115.
