The Taste of Karl Lagerfeld

from "Kaiser Karl" to "Kawaï Karl"

Karl Lagerfeld's story and decoration could start like that of Karen Blixen,  

“I had a farm in Africa, at the foot of the Ngong Hills” ...  just replace "ferme" by "mansion",

"Ngong Hills" by "Paris, Biarritz, Berlin, Monaco, Rome, New-York ..., and its dear country, Hamburg" .  

The star couturier has decorated no less than thirty homes that he has more or less inhabited ...

Bulimic, addictive at work, he juggled good and bad taste, allowing himself all the freedoms.

We invite you to take a tour of the owner who preferred to define himself as a  

  catalyst of styles rather than designer.

"Each of Karl's apartments is a perfect and closed universe, but sincere,

  He goes to the end of an obsession for each place: and then he gets rid of the stuff ."

“Each of Karl's apartments is a perfect and closed universe, but a sincere one,” 

He goes to the end of an obsession for each place: and then he gets rid of stuff.”
