FELL IN LOVE WITH A THING, WEEK 11/2014: KARL LAGERFELD EDITION

This week we got the incredible chance to be part of the new Karl Lagerfeld fragrance launch in Paris. After some amazing sunny and warm spring days in the city of love, a tour through King Karl’s work and studio spaces and an exciting launch party we are back with this special edition of our new weekly series!

Started our tour through the neighborhood around Boulevard St. Germain where all of Karl Lagerfeld’s work spaces are located.
