NEWS JUST IN FROM DUBAI ::
Lagerfeld was quoted as saying…
“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.”
Karl Lagerfeld will build a little Über-chic universe of his own. The standalone island hotel will be located in the United Arab Emirates.
Everyone knows he is the “one man band” behind CHANEL giving us très joli pieces of art year in year out, and now he will lend his artistic skills to Miami-based architecture firm Oppenheimer and the Kor Hotel group to design a 1.2 million square foot island off the coast of Dubai.
WOW, WOW,WOW! I’ve always wanted to have my honeymoon in Dubai…but I was hoping to stay at the Burj Arab, but on second thoughts….? I’d do anything to stay here…but will it be completed in time??
Damn… K.Largefeld is going to be ちょー忙しいね、 as he’s not only going to be involved in conceiving the buildings he will also be active in designing the LAND they sit on. The island will be called `Isla Moda` which is Spanish for Fashion Island. It is one of FIVE designer islands in the works!
Architecture and fashion really do go hand in hand.
Oh My Lordy me… he will designing 5 islands! That would be a dream come true for any architect, let alone a “Fashion” Designer. でも、めっっっっちゃうらやましい!! I WANT TO BE A DESIGNER… I keep saying it, but I don’t know what I’m waiting for!? I guess I always hoped, well thought I’d fall into it… maybe it’s time to make things happen for myselfね.
