Where Chanel goes, KARL by Karl Lagerfeld follows. First Lagerfeld opened a pop-up shop in St. Tropez for the summer (as did Chanel) and now the KARL brand will pop-up at Selfridges in London just in time for the Olympics (Chanel will have a free-standing pop-up at Covent Garden).
Karl Lagerfeld designed a capsule collection for the event called “Team Karl” and will be sold in a pop-up space on the third floor of Selfridges in the contemporary women’s department. The collection includes t-shirts designed by the I Love Dust agency including one with the graphic above showing Karl Lagerfeld preparing to throw a discus. Selfridges will also launch the KARL Fall 2012 collection as well as the first Karl Lagerfeld Paris Man collection.
If you’re in London you should definitely check out the space. Uncle Karl himself will make a personal appearance for the opening on the 24th.
