Karl Lagerfeld is one of the most influential people in fashion, most known for being the head creative director of Chanel. He has multiple homes but one is on the market in his home country of Germany. The estate is affectionately called Villa Jako, named after his late partner, and is one of the most idyllic homes in his portfolio.
One of the things that makes it so special is the fact that it sits on the River Elbe, offering stunning views of the waterfront. The trees that surround it make it a true slice of paradise. The home itself is marvelous, too. Lagerfeld collaborated with Renate Kant, an art conservator. It was constructed in the 1920s but Lagerfeld put his fashionable thumbprint on it.

Some of the world’s greatest interior design can be found in hotels across the globe. That is certainly true for L’Hotel Marrakech in Morocco, designed by Jasper Conran who also designed several dresses for the late Princess Diana and finally had the opportunity to fulfill his dream of designing a hotel with L’Hotel Marrakech.
The riad offers five suites that each have their own unique flavor. The entire place is stunning, not overlooking a single detail from the luxurious, rich textiles to the grand feeling of each space. Every room is bursting with charm and character in an elegant, comfortable way.
