Karl Lagerfeld re-designs Sponge Bob, Italy's Rolling Stone Magazine hosts a Christmas party in honour of the character, and the forthcoming Miami Basel hot ticket is a secret kids club. Welcome to the world of hip kids.
This week Karl Lagerfeld’s customized Sponge Bob (astonishing likeness see above) for a Parisian auction in aid of the WWF – and it’s not Square Pant’s first glamorous outfit of the week. In Milan, Rolling Stone Magazine (who recently named Italian President Silvio Berlusconi their rock star of the year) held a Christmas Ball in honour of the animated character. Amongst popcorn and champagne kids played The Ultimate DJ on playstations whilst the city’s hipsters actually appeared to be - well almost having fun amongst the ice-cream cones and cabaret band.
Is the world broody or are we just tired of being hip?
