Karl Lagerfeld's Paris Couture Fashion Week runway show

Karl Lagerfeld's couture collection debuted amid the rubble of a decrepit theater in Paris.

The talk of Paris Couture Fashion Week? Mr. Karl Lagerfeld. The persnickety designer showed in a rundown theater (think dust, boulders on the floor) with a futuristic cityscape backdrop. Style scribe Cathy Horyn likened his luminous, architectural gowns to the work of Zaha Hadid. [The New York Times]

Speaking of Hadid, the rooftop pool of her forthcoming Miami condo tower, One Thousand Museum, is best described as a modernist fish bowl. See it to believe it. [Curbed Miami]
 

New York City's Statue of Liberty reopened July 4th after being damaged by Hurricane Sandy last fall. Lady Liberty welcomed her first visitors just before 9 a.m. [CNN]

On the local fashion front, Diane von Furstenberg will be opening a store in Merrick Park come September. Music to our ears, indeed. [South Florida Business Journal]

Cuban coffee is mother's milk for Miamians. Now, thanks to Jenny Lee Molina of JLPR, there's an official time of day—officially recognized by the city—for afternoon coffee breaks. Duh, 3:05 p.m.—how did we not think of this sooner? [WRLN]
