BERLIN — Düsseldorf is hosting the Eurovision Song Contest — and fashion icon Karl Lagerfeld — this spring.
Düsseldorf-based Henkel AG’s Schwarzkopf hair care brand asked the multitasking German designer to envision a pop-up concept for the heart of its hometown — intended to attract locals, visitors and stylistas alike.
Called the Schwarzkopf Lightbox by Karl Lagerfeld, the three-story salon, cafe and shop opens April 16, offering hair color, care and styling workshops, as well as events with music and well-known stylists. The venue will stay put for four weeks; later this year it will make stops in Milan and Paris.
For the requisite touch of glamour, the outer walls of the Lightbox will be decorated with silhouettes of models including Coco Rocha, Charlott Cordes and Lagerfeld fave Baptiste Giabiconi. The designer’s own image will greet guests from the top spot, of course.
Peter Kim's Los Angeles-based premium denim line has always had its finger on the pulse of youth. This season, novelty is back in a way reminiscent of early Aughts, with studs, lace-ups, racing waxed denim and more.

"I was driving back on Saturday afternoon from the beach, and I just saw this sign saying 'Skydiving for $95.' And I was like, I can't not sky dive for $95," says Tom Bateman about a moment in Hawaii while shooting "Snatched." #wwdeye (📷: @vsteves; Interview by @ktauer; Styled by @thealexbadia)
