It has just been announced that fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld will be designing 80 “Chanel homes” on Dubai’s new Isla Moda (Fashion Island) in partnership with a local UAE investment firm.
In Karl’s own words:
“The metamorphosis of art and beauty is my passion. The discovery of contemporary mediums of expression has allowed me to pursue my interest in art, beauty, architecture and progressive cultural exchange. Dubai is a fashion bud on the verge of blossoming into the next fashion hub of the world. The city is alive with culture and rich in personality, making it a perfect place for aesthetic, fashion and design to flourish. Isla Moda has tremendous potential to be the style icon of the future and I intend on driving the island to high style stardom.”
I wonder if he will be designing Chanel pets and families next. (via The Pipeline)
