Karl Lagerfeld Building Homes with Bare Hands in Dubai
Written By Karen Ehrenström, on July 9, 2008
Karl Lagerfeld does it all. He creates fashions that range from Ready to Wear to Couture. He is an artist, a musician, a writer, a philosopher and now he is to become an architect. The man apparently does not sleep. He has signed on with a developer in Dubai to build luxury homes. he is building 80 luxury homes to be exact. Each home will have the unique Karl Lagerfeld touch. There will be opulence, there will be fashion but most of all there will be Lagerfeld. In a statement addressing his motivations for the new venture Lagerfeld said,
“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.”
Dubai has one of the largest concentration of millionaires in the world and Lagerfeld’s creations are sure to fetch within the millions once all is said and done. Work is set to begin immediately on creating the designs for the homes and continue through construction.
