THE INN CROWD: A self-professed fan of hotel living, Karl Lagerfeld has been tapped to design two luxurious suites at the Hôtel de Crillon in Paris, currently undergoing a major renovation and slated to reopen in 2015.

“No one understands Paris or the heritage of the Crillon better than Mr. Lagerfeld,” declared Radha Arora, president of Rosewood Hotels & Resorts, in charge of managing the landmark 18th-century hotel on the Place de la Concorde.

Chanel’s couturier is to design two of its most prestigious suites, which he views as “grand apartments.”

Architect Richard Martinet is overseeing the ambitious restoration with interiors by decorators Chahan Minassian, Cyril Vergniol and Tristan Auer under the artistic direction of Aline d’Amman.

In recent years, Lagerfeld has dabbled increasingly in home objects and interior design. He conceived the decor for poolside and a restaurant at the Hôtel Métropole in Monte-Carlo, created the emblem for new Sofitel So Singapore and oversaw interiors of the Alma Schlosshotel in Berlin.
