Fashion industry icon and Chanel couturier Karl Lagerfeld is continuing to make his mark in the hotel design world. He is already working closely with the Sofitel So Singapore and has also crafted the interiors for the Alma Schlosshotel in Berlin. Now, Lagerfeld will add the Hotel de Crillon in Paris to his roster of hospitality projects.
According to this article from Women’s Wear Daily, Lagerfeld has been tapped to design two suites at the historic property. The hotel is currently undergoing a major renovation, and will reopen as a Rosewood property in 2015.
Radha Arora, president of Rosewood Hotels and Resorts told WWD,”No one understands Paris or the heritage of the Crillon better than Mr. Lagerfeld.”
The “grand apartments,” as Lagerfeld refers to the suites, will undoubtedly be stand-out design highlights of the hotel when it reopens in the City of Lights. The rest of the property’s renovation project is being overseen by architect Richard Martinet with interiors by decorators Chahan Minassian, Cyril Vergniol, and Tristan Auer under the artistic direction of Aline d’Amman.
