Mini Karl


Thank you very much for all nice words after yesterday's post, I wish they could lighten my friend's sorrow... The show must go on they say, so here is a view of one of the Christmas windows of Le Printemps (one of the main department stores in Paris) that I took last evening on the way back from a dinner with friends. It shows a bunch of mini Karl (Lagerfeld) in various situations. Really funny!

  1. What a cute shop window! I love the Paris monuments tied in with his film theme. Paris shop windows are always so creative and clever. Last year, Louis Vuitton on the Champs-Elysees had a beautiful woman in a red gown lying on a chaise lounge while a phonograph played nearby and musical notes floated all around her.

  2. And where is Caroline from Monaco or Mette-Marit from Norway. (The Royals)
    Anyway, unique and artistic to show "Mini Karl" like this. :)

  4. I've wondered, though, why a guy who's so into fashion always wears the same outfit.

  5. Petrea- oh I'm pretty sure if you ask him he'll say his outfits differ a lot every time! It's all about the details anyway ;)

  6. I love the creativity of this window. And there are about 25 of him besides the few shown here. Thanks for choosing this window to photograph Eric.

    And Petrea, I absolutely agree...but he's made a brand for himself with this I guess.

  7. Petrea you're right. I have a soft spot for Karl, even in this mini version of him, lol.

    You're really dedicated to PDP Eric and I think that we are all so very grateful that you continue even in a time of sorrow.

  8. Your friend and his family are lucky to have you. I appreciate that you're willing to share with us the facets of your life, because everyone experiences loneliness and sadness at times. Thanks for the uplifting humor in today's PDP; it's child-like in the best possible sense.

  9. I have to agree with Petrea, the similarities outshine the differences every time. Love the Eiffel Tower in the picture!

  10. LGreenWriter, I agree. I wondered what Eric would do to change the mood. There are still comments coming in on yesterday's post and the sympathy continues there as well.

  11. Hmmmm, this photo brings to mind the MACY'S window(s) here in San Francisco. Each year the SPCA and Macy's sponsor holiday windows for homeless puppies and kittens. http://www.sfspca.org/support/events/macys-holiday-windows

  12. Camera, filming, Paris: I thought it WAS Eric! Certainly, he's a bigger celebrity...

  13. Mini Karl reminds me of the mini famous figures you can buy in the Christmas market in Barcelona....except they are in a minor state of squatting....because they are supposed to be...how do I say this delicately..um....pooping. Don't know the reason why their Christmas tradition is that way, but Karl got away with murder in a Paris display. I wonder if his figure is for sale in Barcelona? Stay tuned .

  14. Mini Karl should get together with the Mini Coco that Virginia featured on Paris Through My Lens a couple of weeks ago. They would make a cute couple.

  15. Cooooool! I'm with Jeff...as I too thought of mini-Eric. ;-) Perhaps, Eric will start wearing black and donning those shades and...nah, Eric's already got his own style. Afterall, Eric's the cat who's brought us the "Tenin-perspective" and those amazing Parisian "night-shots."

  16. Have seen pics of this around the internet but this is a great one. If you want to take a look at his rather strange yet interesting existence watch "Lagerfeld Confidential." His costume looks the same everyday but it really isn't...but talk about living in a bubble..Hmmm..

  17. LOL Jeff - he definitely could be Eric!

  18. Ok: who remembers Eric's PDP picnic avatar?

    "Hello. I am Eric." (boogie a little)

    "Please come to the picnic." (swirl one leg, then the other)
