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?
