Karl Lagerfeld has revealed the international opening of The Karl Lagerfeld Macau, a five-star hotel located at The Grand Lisboa Palace Resort Macau, slated for this June. The tower is the only hotel in the world that was wholly designed by the late Karl Lagerfeld. Every element in the hotel exudes his unparalleled creativity, from the extravagant room decor and large-scale installations to minute details like bathrobes and bedsheets. The grand opening of The Karl Lagerfeld Macau will be marked by multi-day celebrations in June; further details on the exclusive program of events will follow.
Owned by SJM Resorts S.A., The Karl Lagerfeld Macau is the latest addition to the hospitality group’s array of hotels. The multisensory hotel experience includes 271 rooms; the Mesa Restaurant featuring gastronomic delights by award-winning chef José Avillez; a Book Lounge featuring 4,000 hand-picked books; and a spa and wellness center including indoor and outdoor swimming pools, all conceived by the late fashion mogul.
Karl Lagerfeld’s design concept stemmed from a sophisticated reimagining of modern Chinoiserie fused with traditional craftsmanship, bold colors and patterns meet tailored silhouettes. Each of the 271 rooms and suites showcases influences of both classic Chinese design and contemporary Western aesthetics: custom-created headboards were inspired by auspicious Chinese coins that represent good fortune, while porcelain vases were handmade in Jingdezhen and circular room dividers were inspired by traditional Chinese moon gates. Reflecting Karl Lagerfeld’s passion for collaboration, specially commissioned furnishings include exquisite sculptures by Dutch artist Marcel Wanders and French artist Jean-Michel Othoniel, and Terzani chandeliers.
Prior to his passing in 2019, Karl Lagerfeld worked in close partnership with SJM on the lavish hotel design for years.
