It was surely inevtiable. Ever since Carine Roitfeld left her role at Paris Vogue we, along with the rest of the fashion industry, have been keeping an interested eye on her latest projects. And, as the man who seems to work with everyone who's anyone, it was only a matter of time before Karl Lagerfeld snapped her up to do some work for him.

We can just picture her working her magic with the masculine trousers, slouchy wool jackets and workman boots that made up the collection.
