To celebrate Hurricane Irene, we went on a little end of summer road trip to picturesque New England. Not really to celebrate Irene, more like to pay homage to Karl - but we did get stuck in the mess that Irene created. Ever since we heard of a secret marriage which was rumored to have taken place last weekend and the recent collaboration with Macy's, not to mention the Magnum Ice Cream films we decided it would be a fun road trip. So we rented our little car and drove up through the northern most island between New York and Vermont in search for the mystical Lagerfeld Estate. Keep your eyes peeled next week for our Lagerfeld Estate series where we'll share with you all the fruity details. [Racked]
