Karl Lagerfeld

I thought the little cut out portrait of Karl Lagerfeld on this building side along one of the canals looked really cute, like an unexpected piece of sophistication in an total mess.

This is a picture I made of a drawing on the wall of Stock the restaurant next to Amsterdam concept store Options. In Amsterdam we have a say 'rare vogels' meaning 'strange birds' The Damrak where Options is located has lots of Strange birds passing by...

So when the building of Hotel Exchange with its concept store Options and its restaurant Stock was finished. All people who had been involved were asked to draw a 'strange bird on the wall of Stock. Hotel Exchange being a fashion boutique Hotel concept, all bird are fashion related too.

Tja, Karl.....inderdaad een rare vogel. Praat razendsnel en heeft een zeer uitgesproken mening over alles ( lees maar eens een interview). En dan die donkere bril, jakkes, vermoeiend hoor, ik kijk liever door een roze, haha.
