Karl Lagerfeld, is one of the most prestigious and iconic stylist presents at the New York Fashion Week and we thought that you may want to see his French apartment at the Quai Voltaire, we promise, this visit will be amazing! Enjoy an intimate view of Karl Lagerfeld‘s apartment, the creative director of Chanel for more than 25 years, the guardian of Coco Chanel’s legacy, that turned the house into one of the most powerful and profitable brands in the world. Born in Hamburg, he moved to Paris in 1952 and made fashion history. The apartment is the reflection of the personality of this visionary man, and says a lot about him. Karl Lagerfeld decorates his home similar to the way he approaches his wardrobe and his work at Chanel. “We are at the heart of a Russian doll: first the clothes, then the apartments and houses. Even the streets and the cities are part of the evolution of our preferences and our taste.” Lagerfeld’s home in the City of Light is located in a 1820s building, but the interior has a spectacular modern look, a combination of two worlds. Lagerfeld says that his apartment is not a house, it’s a “spaceship for the city where you don’t feel bound by the earth.” Classic Lagerfeld.

The most impressive part of Karl Lagerfeld’s home is his library. The retractable glass walls reveal a small sample of the huge collection of books by Karl Lagerfeld, more than 40.000 through its various residences. The furniture consists of tables Corian Martin Szekely (Kreo gallery), chairs Marc du Plantier, four leather chairs by Jean-Marie Massaud (Cassina) and a pair of coffee tables in aluminum and glass BarberOsgerby (Established & Sons). The apartment has been renovated in the last years and the result is a ultra-modern mixture of light, glass and metal. Although the furnishing may be a bit too cold for some people’s taste, Lagerfeld is perfectly fine with it as he thinks of his apartment as a place to “sleep, bathe and work”.
