KARL by Karl Lagerfeld launches, interviews himself

It's a KARL coup d'état on Net-A-Porter.

On Wednesday, KARL by Karl Lagerfeld launched on the e-commerce fashion site, and about half of the collection is already sold out.

Among them: His amazing cutaway leather gloves, a satin twill-trimmed crepe blazer, all of his collars (printed cotton-poplin cameo, faux leather, cracked leather), that cool two-tone leather biker vest, and his white stretch-cotton biker jacket that's oh-so-chic!

The line was built around the concept of basic staples, with a Lagerfeld-like "high style spin." He told the site, "A white shirt, jeans and a jacket are the three basic things everybody needs."

To cope (those gloves!), we've spent part of our morning marveling over his photos in this week's magazine, and watching the granddaddy of fashion interview himself. Watch below.
