    Karl Lagerfeld is set to turn his hand to a spot of interior design, as he takes on an exciting new project in Paris.

    Chanel’s creative director, and master of many a memorable quote, has been called in to design two luxe suites at one of his favourite hotels in the French capital, Hôtel de Crillon.

    Reworking the most prestigious suites in the 18th-century building, Karl will work with the landmark hotel as it undergoes major renovation.

    ‘No one understands Paris or the heritage of the Crillon better than Mr. Lagerfeld,’ Radha Arora, president of Rosewood Hotels & Resorts, told WWD.

    A simply stunning hotel, The Crillon dates back to 1758, having first opened as a hotel in 1909. Situated on the Place de la Concorde, it boasts 103 rooms and 44 suites, having hosted some of the world’s most famous guests.

    The project won’t be Lagerfeld’s first foray into interiors, the Chanel designer has also lent his design talents to the create the emblem for Sofitel So Singapore, and he also advised on the interiors of the Alma Schlosshotel in Berlin. Visitors can also enjoy his work in the restaurant and pool areas of Monte-Carlo’s Hotel Metropole.

    Fret not fashion fans, Lagerfeld will return to fashion week mode in no time.
