Announced Wednesday, Karl Lagerfeld has revealed big news that he is opening up a London flagship in 2014 for the Karl Lagerfeld label. I haven’t done too much research into these pieces, but word on the street is that they are supposed to be more reasonably prices and geared towards a young audience.
According to The Telegraph, the upcoming London location will cater to fashion and tech lovers alike. Shoppers will be able to search inventory and watch branded content on one of the many in-store iPads, and dressing rooms come equipped with personal photo booths that feature Lagerfeld-exclusive filters. Did somebody say “selfie?”
The retails stores are a changin’! I’m curious to see how technology will merge with fashion in this way and what impact this will have on American retailers in the future. How long will it take for this trend to reach us? Months? A year? We shall see!
When Karl Lagerfeld opens his mouth, no one is ever really surprised by what is going to come out of it. Chances are, it’s going to be downright ridiculous, witty, and sometimes a little bit condescending. We love it, naturally. He’s Karl Lagerfeld; he can do whatever he wants.
So we’re a little excited to learn that a book of his quotes is now being published. Can you imagine how entertaining this would be as a coffee table read? The book of Lagerfeld quotes was compiled by editors Patrick Mauriès and Jean-Christophe Napias. The fashion quotes are to be expected, but you’ll also find quotes about life and the designer himself.
It is apparent that Karl Lagerfeld’s lifestyle is one that cannot be compared to ours, but until now, I don’t think anyone ever realized just how outrageous it was. And by outrageous, I mean it is absolutely fantastic. It is comical to say the least, but it is Karl Lagerfeld and he can do whatever he wants.
Seeing Karl grocery shopping or behind the wheel of a car was out of the ordinary for him as captured in the photographs of the recent issue of French Elle, but it makes you wonder…if he is not doing these things, what exactly is he doing? Harper’s Bazaar decided to highlight aspects of his daily routine in their “My List” feature detailing his habits on choice of beverage, sleeping, how he works, and much more.
On his bath products:
When I’m ready, I soak in the bathtub, if you really want to know. I used to have a product I loved, by Shu Uemura, but they don’t make it anymore, so I found a French product that softens the water; it’s a hundred years old. I put half a bottle in the bathtub.

If Karl Lagerfeld were right next to you in the cleaning products aisle, what would you do? What would you say? Would you ask him why he had two models with him? Probably not, wanna know why? Because Karl Lagerfeld can do whatever he wants. So when I tell you next that this staged photo shoot was the first time that Karl has ever stepped into a super market, you probably shouldn’t be too surprised. I mean, when has he ever had a reason to shop for his own groceries, really? When you’re eating like Karl every night, you probably would find yourself in a similar situation.
This photo along with several other photos are featured in a new piece for French Elle showcasing Karl Lagerfeld in a way like you’ve “never seen him before.” Basically he’s photographed in scenarios that would never happen to him in real life such as the grocery shopping or behind the wheel of a car. The fashion designer hasn’t driven a car since he was 18.

I’m not the most skilled when it comes to makeup, but I’ve got my favorites. I’ve got a wide range of products such as my Covergirl lash blast mascara found at the drugstore to my Chanel compact purchased at department stores. Oh yeah – I also like my freebies too – you know the little samples you get when you purchase a “gift.” Just kidding – that totally just ruined the definition of free, but you know what I mean.
