Karl Lagerfeld to design hotel
From recreating a hypermarket for Chanel’s show to designing a hotel, designer Karl Lagerfeld seems to do it all. His first venture as a hotel designer will be a 270 room, 20-storey hotel tower in gaming mecca, Macau. With a launch date of 2015, Karl is said to be looking into every single detail. From what we hear he is leaning towards a 19th-century style, but will make it modern at the same time. We can’t wait!

L’Wren Scott commits suicide
The week started on a sombre note with news of American designer and former model, L’Wren Scott’s suicide filtering in. In a baffling twist of events, the designer was found hanging in her Manhattan apartment, and the investigators have closed the case as a suicide. The news of her death sent the rumour mills churning even as her long time boyfriend Rolling Stone’s Mick Jagger postponed the band’s concert in Australia and New Zealand. Known for her sleek and sexy designs, she was a red carpet favourite and had also collaborated with Banana Republic for a limited edition capsule collection. She will be missed.
