Karl Lagerfeld pop-up shop coming soon to Selfridges
Three days before the Summer Olympics are due to start, Karl Lagerfeld will be at Selfridges launching his brand new pop-up shop. The Chanel designer will unveil a concept space on the third floor where he will launch his new Karl Lagerfeld Paris Man line.
Windows at the department store will be transformed to reflect the 'Team Karl' theme. A dedicated space will be used to temporarily house an Olympic-themed capsule collection including limited edition T-shirts designed in collaboration with London design agency, I Love Dust. Designs include a drawing of Karl in his trademark suit, crouching forward getting ready to launch a discus into the air (pictured). Kind of awesome.
Selfridges also plans to introduce the autumn collections for both men and women under the Karl label, which made its début in January. Lagerfeld will attend a private cocktail party to help celebrate the showcase - of course we'll be waiting patiently for our invite in the mail *wink*. If all else fails, he will also be making a personal appearance in store on July 24, just prior to the beginning of the London Olympic Games. It is your chance to meet Mr Lagerfeld himself - time to pencil this one into your calendars fashion darlinks!
