Karl Lagerfeld - House Tour

One-thousand-eight-hundred-and-twenty-five days is how long it took me to convince Karl Lagerfeld to let the world have a SnOOp inside his Paris home. Emails and phone-calls more emails and phone calls to Mr Lagerfeld's office concluded that his press team, in 2008, ended up feeling sorry for me and decided to mail me the BEST parcel I have ever received. No it wasn't a Chanel handbag it was a disk containing images shot by our generations fashion design icon of his new Paris home.

  1. I love that the persistence paid off...what a treat! Interesting it is all very stark and devoid of color! I am always fascinated with how fashion designer's decorate their homes!

  10. Your perseverance has paid off! And in spades.. Wow. His bed linens surprised me. Everything is so clean, modern, clinical and yet his bed is edged with.. dentelle? There is a softer side to Karl.. You are amazing! I would be and am too intimidated to ever meet this man of wonder...
