Karl isn’t the only fashionable Kaiser. Long before Lagerfeld reigned, Kaiser Wilhelm II, Germany’s last Emperor (a.k.a. the guy largely blamed for starting WWI), had a famous affinity for uniforms. A postcard from 1861 depicts the then two-year-old Wilhelm II dressed in a sailor ensemble – a costume ubiquitous in children’s daywear for decades to come. In his adulthood, the Kaiser was known to change several times a day, even adopting the foreign uniforms of visiting diplomats.
