Today I visited the Karl Lagerfeld store in Munich to browse around abit.
When I went to the changing room to try on a pair of jeans I discovered an interesting installation:
There was an iPad right on the mirror at eye-level, inviting me to take a selfie whilst changing and then upload it on facebook! What a cool idea to digitalize the store. You could choose from about 5 different frames with one b&w option.
However, my selfie on the iPad only showed the upper half of my body minus the cool pants. So I still had to take a selfie with the phone to show you my new pants!
The pants are pretty interesting: Very stretchy white fabric which has been partially sprayed with black dye. You can see the white colour inside and on the zip. And speaking of inside, the pocket lining has little ‘Karls’ all over.
The sales assistant thought I should take a size smaller (27″ instead of 28″) but honestly, I am so fed up with the super tight-fitting pants! So I went for the 28….
(By the way, the black top is Roberto Cavalli- I was wearing it underneath the striped Escada Sport shirt.)
And for those of you who, like me, are wondering where Karl produces his garments, this particular one was made in Albania.
Other interesting things in the store was a book about Karl’s cat called Choupette and little tester-papers to spray perfume on in the shape of Karl’s profile.
