Inside Karl Lagerfeld's NY apartment

As someone who famously always dresses in black, Karl Lagerfeld's apartment in New York is surprisingly exactly the opposite- bright, white and beautiful. These pictures, from Oyster Magazine , show Lagerfeld's spacious, minimalist apartment in Manhattan which is on the market for a cool $5.2 million. The apartment overlooks Gramercy Park, a prime location for the New York A-list, yet it still has not been snapped up.

The apartment has floor to ceiling windows which means the place is always drenched in sunshine- not somewhere you would expect to find Lagerfeld lurking. The massive kitchen is kitted out in only the finest, top of the range Miele appliances; strange considering Lagerfeld, who lost 6 and a half stone (42kg) in just over a year, is more of a fan of Diet Coke than gourmet dinners.

The immaculate white furniture complements the natural light in the rooms, making it look even bigger than it actually is. The master bedroom comes with a walk-in wardrobe- (of course, where else would Karl keep all of his black suits?) and a large en-suite bathroom with probably the biggest bathtub I've ever seen. The Gramercy Park residents also enjoy exclusives services such as a butler, housekeeping, personal shoppers, room service and access to a private rooftop club. Just as luxurious as we'd expect from Karl the Kaiser.


  1. This is beautiful, regardless of what you might think of his personality you can't deny the man has such taste!

  2. So not what I expect from Karl Lagerfeld but his taste remains impecable! Thank you so much for your message in IFB! Came to check out your blog and loved it!
