Karl Lagerfeld's Working On A Hotel! Here's 10 Things We Hope Are There

06 March 2014 by


Karl Lagerfeld left us all a tither on Monday when he held the Chanel Autumn Winter 2014 show in its own Chanel supermarket.

Featuring - 500 products from water to soda, sweets to erm.. ham - we fell in love with the installation and want to do our food shop there EVERY WEEK. Unfortunately, the hypermarche was only temporary fixture. We'll never be able to own Jambon Cambon or wipe our feet on a Channel 'Mademoiselle Private' doormat. Boo.

All's not lost though. Karl might have dashed our Chanel supermarket dreams but he is opening a HOTEL!! He signed on to design the interiors for a 20-storey high, 270-room venue in Macau. It's the first time Karl's ever gone into interiors and he's super excited about the hotel, which will open in 2017.

‘I am very happy and proud to work on such a great project,' the tireless designer told WWD. 'An entire hotel designed by me. It’s the first time for me! I think the idea is great!’

Here's 10 things we're hoping for.

1. Quilted everything

2. Tweed everything else

3. A luxury pet corner..

4. But Choupette will get her own suite, obvs

5. A sweatpant ban

6. A boring people ban

7. Coco Chanel scented pillows

8. Incredible theme rooms like this

9. And this

10. Mini bars stocking ONLY Diet Coke

Check out all the highlights from Chanel's Autumn Winter 2014 supermarket-themed show.
