01-At Home With Karl Lagereld | Paris-This Is Glamorous

THIS WEEK’S INTERIORS REDUX goes back to 1989, to the time when Vogue sent photographer Oberto Gili and editor André Leon Talley to the stunningly ornate Left Bank apartment of Karl Lagerfeld, who also owned at the time, a villa and two apartments in Monaco, a château in Brittany, as well as homes in Rome and in Melun. Amazingly, all were decorated in the eighteenth-century style. This stunning nine room Parisian apartment featured handwoven fabrics from Lyon, Versailles-esque beds, statues and feathers and fringes and crown canopies. In 2000, much was auctioned off in Monaco in to the amount of $21.7 million. Click through the slideshow for a glimpse into the designer’s Parisian hide-away . . .
