Watch Out, Kardashians! Karl Lagerfeld Is Latest To Kash In On The Letter K

Karl Lagerfeld's new cut-price line has just been announced - delivering the fashion heavyweight's tailoring to the masses.
Where a single image from the forthcoming affordable collection assures fans that the design great will not to stray far from his favourite monochrome palette, press materials for the masstige line's announcement were also strangely familiar.
WWD reports that Mr Lagerfeld's brand book is 'riddled' with the letter K, stating that the 'kountdown' to the Karl line has begun.
Littered with placements of Ks where Cs should have been - such as 'artistiK,' 'ironiK,' and 'aKcessible,' the don of design seems to have an affinity with the kicking consonant, taking a lead from none other than the Kardashians.
Mr Lagerfeld's silk blouses, draped T-shirt dresses, capri pants and dresses appear to have no similarity whatsoever to the Kardashian's own affordable fashion line, Kardashian Kollection, instead presumably simply laying claim to the letter because of his name.
The 100-piece womenswear Karl collection will be unveiled during Couture Fashion Week in Paris on January 25, costing between $80 and $470. It and will be on sale at Net-A-Porter.com.


The Kardashian family, meanwhile, is infamous for its love of the letter and one need look no further than its nomenclature for proof.

Kollections: It's Karl v. Kardashians as both big names lay stake to the letter K

Kris, Kourtney, Khloe, Kim, Kendall and Kylie Kardashian are so K-replete they may make monogrammed towels seem a good family deal, while some even suggest that Kim's estranged husband, Kris Humphries, was a fitting choice because of his name.
Whether as a bit of fun or as good-natured mocking, news reports and press information regarding the star family have inevitably come to be dominated by the consonant.

But, as one of the world's most famous fashion designers takes on America's most famous reality TV family, who will reign supreme over the alphabet's 11th letter?
We have an inkling that Karl can get away with whatsoever he chooses.
As writers at Fashionista.com point out, while the family have a pile of Ks to fall back on, Karl Lagerfeld's place at the top of the fashion pile is inkontestable
