This past Tuesday, Karl Lagerfeld unveiled an Olympics-inspired line as part of his new pop-up store at Selfridges in London. For the launch the Chanel director was joined by a cohort of pretty young things including The Kills’ Alison Mosshart, who DJ’d.
The Olympic collection, ‘Team Karl’, includes gold, silver and bronze collars and gold flecked jackets, adorned with a special ‘Team Karl’ logo — an image of the designer bent over in preparation to throw a discus. In a suit and tie, no less. As reported by NY Mag’s Vulture Karl was in fine form, saying of the collection: “It’s a joke. It’s an inspiration. In a way, it’s me. So I have to be careful not to get too much into it, because I don’t expect everybody to dress like me. That’s why I like this collection with the t-shirt to make a joke out of me, because I think I’m a cartoon.”
