Karl Lagerfeld's Paris Apartment, 1973

Welcome to Karl Lagerfeld's Paris apartment he lived in in 1973! Located in Saint-Germain-des-Près, near the Church of Saint-Sulpice, it sat in an 18th century building designed by Servandoni, who was also architect of the church's facade. Note on the second picture showing Karl's bedroom: The impressive room features an ample ceiling height of 5 meters and is exclusively furnished with designer pieces from the 1920s. Karl quotes "Sleeping here feels like in a fairy tale." Fashion fun fact: Model Jiji Johnson is wearing a vintage Lanvin velvet and lamé coat from 1932. Check out the details by supersizing the images!
