Karl Lagerfeld Designing Lobbies at Estates at Acqualina, Although He Probably Thinks its Gauche
When Karl Lagerfeld comes to Miami, he stays at tres chic hotels like the Raleigh, the Delano, or the Standard. The Russian oligarchs who buy all his clothes, however, stay at the massive and tragically opulant Acqualina. So it makes absolute sense, on an economic level, that Mr. Lagerfeld, the famed creative director at Chanel, would be hired to create the lobbies of the two newest editions to the Acqualina Resort itself, the towering Estates at Acqualina. Of course Lagerfeld gave an appropriately gushy quote to the Acqualina people for their press release as reprinted in the Real Deal, (“I am excited by the opportunity to design the lobbies of The Estates at Acqualina and take great pride in knowing that the spaces I create will be such important spaces in the building,” etc. etc. said Mr. Lagerfeld) because that’s just what one does, but the quote doesn’t actually say what he thinks of Acqualina itself. Maybe he thinks its gauche? Coco would definitely think its gauche.
