Karl Lagerfeld: A Life in Houses


SKU: FKA2069 Categories: , , , , Tags: , ,

The first publication dedicated to Karl Lagerfeld’s glamorous homes, known for their eclectic interiors, ranging from the art deco to the ultramodern.

While Karl Lagerfeld was famous for being at the very center of the fashion industry for over half a century, he was equally opinionated when it came to interiors, which acted as a private creative outlet.

Following an introduction by Patrick Mauries, each house is introduced by a short text by Marie Kalt unveiling the history of Lagerfeld’s homes while identifying key designers and pieces. From his elegant art deco–inspired apartment in Saint-Sulpice, Paris, to the incredibly ornate eighteenth-century mansion Hôtel Pozzo di Borgo, Lagerfeld’s houses reveal he was a collector on a Renaissance scale as they showcase his spectacular range. Lagerfeld balanced the old with the new and moved from one atmosphere to the next, leaving a Memphis-designed apartment in Monte Carlo for a grand tour–themed Roman pied-a-terre, followed by bucolic French country houses and even a majestic Nordic villa in his native Hamburg.

Presented in a large, elegant format, Karl Lagerfeld: A Life in Houses will be a rich source of inspiration for those interested in interior design and will appeal to fans of the decorative arts and the fashion designer himself.
