Lagerfeld unleashed at Hotel Metropole

Earlier this year, Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo invited fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld to cast his vision and redesign the luxury venue’s exterior.

In one of the most exciting artistic and architectural colloborations with a hotel, Lagerfeld has redesigned the pool, terrace, gardens, and the new Joel Robuchon restaurant in his own distinct and inimitable style.

Hotel guests will be able to see the full repertoire of Lagerfeld’s work after it is unveiled in November 2012.

Here is a sneak preview below of just one detail of the key features – a stunning piece of art by Karl Lagerfeld. A fresco-style installation created exclusively for the hotel will be made up of 15 impressive glass panels portraying Ulysses’ journey.
