Karl Lagerfelds first London store opens on Regent Street tomorrow and weve already been inside for a first look.
It's the largest store in Europe for the designer's eponymous label. As you would expect theres a strictly monochrome colour scheme, enhanced by glossy surfaces, mirrors, faux fur chairs and graffiti-style artwork designed especially for the store by I Love Dust. And what can you buy? The labels womens and mens collections, as well as an impressive array of handbags, sunglasses and shoes.
In addition, to mark the big reveal Mr Lagerfeld has created a special British-inspired capsule collection that includes everything from a sweatshirt emblazoned with the Union Jack and Karls unmistakable silhouette to tokidoki dolls of Karl with a British tie accessorizing his monochrome ensemble. You can even buy his signature white collars.
This evening the store will play host to a cocktail party. Well be there, and rumour has it that so will Karl. Check back tomorrow for all the details.
The Karl Lagerfeld store opens tomorrow at 145-147 Regent StreetMore
