Straight off the heels of a successful Chanel Couture show in Paris, Kaiser Karl launched his Karl line exclusively on luxury site Net-A-Porter. The capsule collection is built on Karl's must-have wardrobe staples: "A white shirt, jeans and a jacket are the three basic things that everybody needs," Karl told Net-A-Porter magazine.

The exclusive collection exudes Karl's distinct aesthetic: tailored faux leather pencil skirts, crisp white button-ups and polished tuxedo jackets. But in true Karl form, the mostly black and white line-up was sprinkled with a few unexpected and thoroughly fabulous pieces. Standouts were the metallic-flecked trousers and the sequined pencil skirt, perfect items to add some spice into a business casual wardrobe.

In the accessories department, the iconic designer did not hold back. There were no Chanel-style quilted pieces, but instead, rocker-chic pieces that perfectly reflect Karl's laid-back cool factor. Must-haves include cutout sandals with buckled detailing, the oh-so-popular sequined poplin collar and (of course) Karl's signature leather gloves.

If you're interested in nabbing the affordable pieces, time is of the essence as items are selling out fast. The collection is available for purchase on Net-A-Porter.

Just in case the retail news isn't enough to satisfy your Karl appetite, it seems that the man himself has finally joined the Twitter-sphere! Find the tech-savvy designer at @KarlLagerfeld
