The rooftop of Selfridges on Oxford Street was kept in the colours of Karl as the world’s most famous designer threw an intimate soirée last night. Marking the launch of his pop-up shop at the department store featuring Team Karl, a special edition Olympics-inspired collection, slick black and white surroundings set the stage for a party in Karl Lagerfeld’s honour, complete with cakes adorned with the designer’s signature profile. A dip-dyed Alison Mosshart DJ’ed as Herr Lagerfeld mingled with a glitzy guest list including Daphne Guinness, Poppy Delevingne, Rosario Dawson, Tallulah Harlech, Josephine de la Baume, Juno Temple, Edie Campbell and Mario Testino. The Kaiser pulls quite the crowd. Some were dressed in the collection’s trademark print composed of tiny images of the designer’s face made to look like camouflage. Never one to rest on his laurels, Karl also celebrated the launch of his new menswear line, Karl Lagerfeld Paris.
The Team Karl pop-up shop is located on the 3rd floor at Selfridges London.
