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]
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]
