The Larger-Than-Life Late Icon Karl Lagerfeld Leaves His Touch On Some Of The World’s Most Extraordinary Buildings

The iconic and larger-than-life fashion legend Karl Lagerfeld has passed away leaving behind an extraordinary legacy that revolutionized the industry and every fashion house he touched.  Lagerfeld will be remembered as one of the most influential designers in the history of fashion as the visionary mastermind behind the ultra-luxurious and exclusive fashion houses Chanel, Fendi and his self-titled Karl Lagerfeld. The late designer loved all aspects of design and ventured outside of the fashion world by partnering with some of the world’s most exclusive developments as the visionary interior designer behind the extraordinary properties. As the fashion and design world mourn the loss of the larger-than-life late icon, we take a look at some of the projects he left behind in the world of Interior Design.

Situated in the heart of Sunny Isles Beach, Florida, the Estate at Acqualina will feature lobbies designed by the late icon, who drew inspiration from traditional Roman piazzas.
