See Karl Lagerfeld's First Trip to the Grocery Store

Mar 14 2012 - 9:48am

>> Under normal circumstances, Karl Lagerfeld doesn't do things like grocery shopping — but for the sake of a navel-gazing, tongue-in-cheek fashion editorial, he made an exception.

As part of his stint as guest editor and political columnist for French Elle, Lagerfeld starred in what WWD [1] promises will "show Karl Lagerfeld like you've never seen him before." Lagerfeld poses looking for stain removers in a supermarket and sitting behind the wheel of a car, frustrated with the indignity of being stuck in a traffic jam. But in reality, Lagerfeld hasn't driven since he was 18 years old and told WWD he'd never been in a supermarket before. "It's the first time I've stepped into a supermarket. It's crazy — fascinating what one can buy. There's enough here to easily gain 20 kilos."

Meanwhile, models Saskia de Brauw and Caroline Nielsen are featured in the background wearing the "masstige" line Lagerfeld created for Net-a-Porter [2].
