INSIDE KARL LAGERFELD'S MANY LUXURIOUS HOMES
Hundreds of Karl Lagerfeld’s designs—for Chanel, Fendi, Chloé, and more—have been published in Vogue; and, in a 34-year span, the magazine published eight features on the designer’s luxurious homes.

ANDREA TOGNON HOUSE TOUR
Known for his ability to conceive and swiftly execute boutiques for such brands as Céline, Jil Sander and Max Mara, he eschews gloss and bustle in his private life, preferring to inhabit naturally burnished spaces borne of a Zenlike patience and a sense of restraint.
