Karl Lagerfeld To Design Macau Hotel
The Kaiser is turning his hand to hotels
Fresh from the success of his AW14 show for Chanel, Karl Lagerfeld is once more turning his hand to the hospitality sector. He’s signed a deal to design a 270-room hotel in Macau, his biggest hospitality project yet.
“I have more houses than I need and I don’t want to do any anymore. So I can – how could I say? – get rid of my frustration by doing hotels,” the designer told WWD.
It won’t be his first time designing for a hotel, though the scale is unprecendented – he’s designed the Hotel Métropole Monte-Carlo’s pool, and suites at the Hotel de Crillon. We’ll be interested to see how Karl translates his design aesthetic to a whole hotel – will it make it to our list of beautiful fashion hotels?
