The fashion god that is Karl Lagerfeld has given us a rare glimpse into his world. A series of intimate portraits of him in his apartment in Paris were used for his guest edit of France’s Architectural Digest. Needless to say, his apartment is incredible. Chic, minimal, clean lines are contrasted against what is the most captivating aspect of the apartment- a floor to ceiling bookcase that envelops his study with a spiral staircase that takes you to a mezzanine level. Juxtapositions are key to Lagerfeld’s interior, much like his design aesthetic, utilising the opposition between black and white, between minimal and cluttered and between homely and sterile, to compose his living arena. An apartment fit for a king, well, a fashion one anyway.
