HOUSE PROUD: Karl Lagerfeld — who last week told WWD he would sell his Manhattan apartment on Gramercy Park because he almost never stays there — has decided to take it off the market. The designer is incensed at the erroneous suggestion — floated on countless blogs and Web sites in recent days — that he was prepared to let the luxury flat go at a steep discount to what he paid for it in 2005. “I never heard anything about such a price, nor has my business manager,” the designer said Monday. Squelching the speculation, the savvy designer has decided not to pursue a listing. “We live in a time beyond truth,” he stated. “Today, you can put anything on the ’Net and you don’t even have to excuse yourself when it’s not true.” Meanwhile, Lagerfeld continues to invest in another prime piece of real estate in America. He is completely restoring his house in rural Vermont, a 1840 beauty in a Greek Revival style, to its original glory.
