London Calls For Karl New!

Snap the pencil and ink Tuesday 24th July into your diaries as the exclusive launch date of Karl Lagerfeld at Selfridges in London. The red ribbon will be cut swiftly on the two collections from the brands Karl Man + Woman, and the premium line Karl Lagerfeld Paris Man. There will be a temporary space (calling it a pop-up shop is so last summer) on the 3rd floor of the womenswear department promising to engulf shoppers in the luxe world associated with Mr Lagerfeld. Considering Karl's cat is famous for using an iPad and having multiple members of staff dedicated to its happiness, we're rather looking forward seeing how the yellow-clad store will house the splendour of this brand and encapsulate the decadence of the man behind its success. Mmm... A golden Karl statue? Nah. Glorious minimalism? Perhaps. Either way, the fashion desk is impatient for some consumer escapism.
