Time for a change: Karl Lagerfeld to enter the luxury HOTEL business


At 83 years old, you’d think Karl Lagerfeld would be scaling back on his work rather than adding to it.

But it seems Chanel’s Creative Director still has more energy than most twenty-somethings as he’s decided to lend his expertise to the hospitality sector.

According to WWD, the famous designer is set to project his good taste into a line of bespoke hotels, residential properties, restaurants and private clubs as part of a joint venture with Brandmark Collective B under the Karl Lagerfeld Hotels and Resorts brand.

The German has previously been involved with a number of interiors projects including a 270-room hotel in Macau and a swimming pool redesign at the Hotel Metropole Monte Carlo.

The South China Morning Post has reported that the first hotel to be designed in its entirety by Karl will open in Macau, China, next year.
