These days, designers needn’t limit themselves to Fashion. They also understand the art of reinvention—particularly within the sphere of interior design—to promote luxury fashion houses worldwide in a different domain.
Some of the biggest names and labels in Fashion, including Karl Lagerfeld, Versace and Dior, have broadened their reach into luxury hotels and suites, allowing regular people to indulge in fashion icons’ lavish interiors.
From the Coco Chanel suite in the Ritz Paris to Fendi’s private suites situated on top of their flagship store in Milan, design houses have translated their tastes from the runway to the world of interior design.
