To coincide with the launch of his new Munich concept store, Karl Lagerfeld has created what WWD is describing as a "Bavarian-flavored" capsule collection. The German designer has Karl-ified the traditional dirndl--you know that pinafore and blouse you picture buxom blond German ladies wearing at beer halls--kitting it out in black with leather accents. The launch is timed to Oktoberfest's 180th anniversary.
I once went to Oktoberfest and didn't like it very much. One dude grabbed me in a very inappropriate way and then an old man told me I looked like a little mouse (he did buy me some chicken and a stein of beer though, which was nice). Anyway, I bet if I was wearing a Karl Lagerfeld dirndl I would have had a great time.
