Creamy Lager…157.

Hoho! The degree of hilarity inherent to my post titles really knows no bounds! On first glance I thought the label (Lager 157) was some little-known, Karl Lagerfeld-related line. Alas, it certainly isn’t, however this cardigan, which I happened upon mid-charity-shop-rummage is no less satisfactory for it. I’ve been looking for some off-white/cream hues as they’re somewhat more flattering to my blatantly Irish complexion than stark white…

Turns out, Lager 157 (for those of you that aren’t aware…) is a Swedish retail chain with several stores throughout the country which aim to sell top brands at half-price or less. This was good to know but it still didn’t answer my question as to why “Lager 157” was actually printed on the label of the clotted cream (it is rather, don’t you think) cardi. Some website poring-over has led me to believe they have their own range as well, offering monochrome basics (in the vein of bStore). Anyone in a position to provide more info?
