Social Snaps: Karl Largerfeld Olympic Collection

Shot by Amina Nolan at Selfridges, London.

Last night Karl Lagerfeld unveiled an Olympics-inspired line as part of his new pop-up store at Selfridges, just in time for the games (though he won't be watching them himself). 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." 

Our favourite fashion cat, Choupette, also got a mention: "I never expected to like a cat because I've had dogs in the past but Choupette is fragile. She goes to the doctors every ten days to check her weight and see if everything is okay. She even has a personal maid ... She's very clever. Generally cats don't speak but when she wants something, she just sits in front of it. It's unbelievable ... Her fur is so beautiful. She's like a huge powderpuff with blue eyes. People are stunned by her ... Soon people will talk more about Choupette than about me!"

She's very cute, but we doubt it.
