Kaia Gerber has only just turned 16 recently, but she’s already making an impact on the fashion world. Being the daughter of Cindy Crawford, we expect nothing less from her, and she has delivered beyond our expectations. Kaia did not stop after taking part in the Calvin Klein New York Fashion Week, she went on to take part in major shows such as Valentino, Moschino, Alexander Wang, Fendi, and Saint Laurent. What has everyone talking, however, is Karl Lagerfeld’s interest in Kaia. Karl moved swiftly to cast Kaia in Chanel’s Spring 2018 show.
Chanel’s Spring 2018 Shoot
Kaia was the perfect fit for Chanel’s Spring handbag collections. The ease at which she showcased the handbags was breathtaking. The pictures were photographed by Karl Lagerfeld himself. This was a big honor for Kaia. The black and white theme gave a fresh yet vintage feel. As her first Chanel campaign, Kaia’s shoot was done in Mademoiselle’s apartment in Paris. Kaia brought Mademoiselle’s apartment to life. There could not have been a better location to shoot the Spring collection.
The shoot by Karl also showcases the latest PVC bags. This had made a debut on the Spring 2018 runway. Among them were the Chanel boy bag and Gabrielle bag. Kaia handled the bags in a stylish pose with her incredibly long limbs stretched on plush sofas.
What’s next for Kaia?
The years spent growing up in a fashion household has paid off, in fact, sooner than anticipated. She is also in very good company because her brother Presley has already appeared in shows, such as Moschino, Balmain, and Dolce and Gabbana. She will also soon join her brother for the Christopher Bailey show.
For Kaia, this marks the start of an incredible journey as Karl Lagerfeld is expected to showcase her in other muses for Chanel. This is also bound to increase her international ratings as a rising model.
