Karl launch in New York

Yesterday Megan and I went to New York for the Karl Lagerfeld KARL for Net-a-Porter, which was sort of an odd event for a clothing line, as there were no actual clothes on site.

Instead, there large photographs of the clothes on the walls and everyone was encouraged to download the KARL app for their iPhones and then you hold them up, and the app launches the store. You tap the item you want to buy in the photo and place your order.

There was a chance that if you scanned an item you might win it, so I kept on scanning for about 20 minutes, no luck.

I did get the gift bag though, which contained an item from the line, a sequined collar. The other item you could possibly receive was a pair of fingerless leather gloves. The bag also had a tee shirt in it, but I don't know what I'll do with that...

After we decided we were tried of scanning the walls in hopes of a free pair of $400 sandals, we went to lunch and then spent the rest of the day shopping and taking photos.

Turns out I really only needed to worry about what coat I was wearing today, since I rarely had it off!

Megan and I both made some good purchases, I took advantage of the Zara sale and got a leather clutch, I also snagged a seafoam cardigan at H&M.

Shey said...

You look so chic, I've been looking for red gloves that are not way too expensive, so far I still haven't found the perfect pair. =)

TrophyBoutique said...

Oooh la la you ladies look uber sophisticated! I love it. Makes me miss the city...a little bit.

Alex Elizabeth said...

Yay leopard dress! I can't wait to see your collar. I heard you needed an iPhone or iPad to buy the clothes, but I didn't know they wouldn't have any there... I wonder how many people are going to return everything, hahaha. I like this trench and fur collar combination a lot. You should do it all the time!

Were you disappointed? This sounds a bit weird to me, but I look forward to seeing you in the sequined collar.

I saw that event advertised on Twitter. I went to the site and they showed the collection. I'm LOL at everyone holding their cell phone up. Glad you won something. You and Megan look too awesome. I love your coat, necklace and gloves. I am loving Megans sunnies and shoes. Fabulous ladies! Karl would be proud. HAHA
