The Hotel Métropole Monte-Carlo, a Belle Epoque jewel that was given a modern overhaul in 2004, is the designer’s latest extracurricular project. Lagerfeld was called upon to redesign its outside premises — including the pool, terrace and gardens — and to create an artistic setting for the hotel’s third Joël Robuchon restaurant. One of the key features of the project will be a fresco-style installation consisting of 15 etched and backlit glass panels depicting Ulysses’ journey.
Ulysses’ journey through the eye of Karl‘s imagination is black-and-white, super sleek, and filled with great accessories. The designer has apparently been tapped as scenographer for the next Biennale des Antiquaires, scheduled for Sept. 14 to 23 in Paris at the Grand Palais, where Lagerfeld frequently stages his elaborate runway shows for Chanel.
