Our favourite picks from the Karl Lagerfeld collection

First published: 27-10-2016

Bold, iconic, often controversial... the outspoken Karl Lagerfeld continues to make waves in the high-fashion world, as he has since the 1980s. The 80-plus designer - who is the creative director of Chanel, as well as the head of his own fashion label - is famed for creating striking monochrome looks accentuated with shots of vivid colour.

Lagerfeld brings his catwalk style to his wrist wear collection, with a range of men's and women's watches that can make any outfit look stylish and unique. Here, we take a look at some of our favourite pieces from the Lagerfeld collection.

Rose gold delight

The Karl 7 Chronograph Watch in rose gold balances a feel of femininity with a harder, metallic edge. The face design is shaped to create a range of shades by catching the light, giving the watch a multi-tonal finish.

The numbering uses a combination of roman numerals and digits, but rather than overwhelming the face, the style of each element brings a touch of classic style to an otherwise modern timepiece.

This watch is ideal for a formal event, such as a wedding, as it makes a statement but is unlikely to over-accessorise the outfit.

Modern gentleman

This modern men's timepiece - the Energy Watch - is a classic example of Lagerfeld's most iconic designs. Using black and white to create a monochrome effect accentuated with subtle silver finishes, the timeless colour scheme is perfectly balanced with the modern digits and lettering to create a fashionable, urban accessory.


The leather strap is smooth and slim, which not only makes the watch comfortable to wear, but works to further highlight the large face, which is the star of the design. This piece is versatile, so it will work well with a smart suit, or informal T-shirt and jeans.

Understated design

Ladies' Bellville watches are available in a number of shades, allowing you to choose a timepiece in the colouring of your choice. Much simpler than the Karl 7 watch above, the Bellville takes the metallic shading of the Karl 7, but removes all numbering, adds a soft leather strap, and reduces the size of the face.


As a result, the Bellville will fit snugly, and look proportional, on even the slimmest wrist, and works well as a daily watch that will suit most styles. Add a sparkle to your office wear, or make a statement when you're hitting town for a spot of shopping!

Masculine and feminine

Lagerfeld is known for adding a masculine twist to his ladies' line, as well as including a touch of femininity to his men's collection. Inspired by this trend, Lagerfeld has a range of bold unisex watches that flatter every fashion-lover's wrist.


We love this deep black timepiece, that includes a pop of colour thanks to bright gold touches on the face. This is a special timepiece that adds a thoroughly fashionable edge to your outfit - perfect for special events.

Bright and bold

In much the same way as his fashion lines, Lagerfeld occasionally breaks away from his black-and-white scheme on his timepieces and uses vibrant colours to create something truly eye-catching. This ladies' Zip Watch is a perfect example, with a hot pink leather strap, bold gold face and stud detailing.


The ultra-slim strap makes this watch appear at first glance to be a relatively simple bracelet, and it's only on closer inspection that the bare face comes into focus. This is ideal for any fashion lover who wants to wear a timepiece that completely breaks the mould, while adding a splash of colour to their daily wardrobe.

Kitsch and retro

Thanks to the yellow gold plating and quilted effect face, the Karl Lagerfeld Watch is the perfect addition to any retro-lover's jewellery box. This kitsch watch lets the face pattern do all the talking, with a minimalist, numeral-free timekeeping design, delicate hands and a slim strap.


This timepiece works best with a smart-casual wardrobe; skinny black trousers and a simple, slim-fitting shirt would allow the watch to shine and work as a real attention grabber.


The Karl Lagerfeld watch collection for men and women contains timepieces that are an absolute must for high-fashion lovers. With price tags to suit a range of budgets, and a selection of styles from outlandish to subtle, choose a watch that shows off your personality with this eclectic collection.
