Karl Lagerfeld's luxury apartment goes up for auction for 10 million euros

The responsible notary office announced this, but did not provide any information on the identity of the buyer. The initial bid for the futuristically designed apartment complex in the historic center of the French capital was set at 5.3 million euros. Only bidders who had deposited a security deposit of 1.06 million Euros were allowed to bid. The apartment's auction took place at the Paris Chamber of Commerce and Industry, but interested parties can also bid online or by phone.

Lagerfeld lived in the apartment, its 260 square meters spread over three rooms, for about a decade until his death in February 2019. It is located in a 17th-century building on the Quai Voltaire in the historic center of Paris and offers spectacular views of the Seine and the Louvre. The fashion czar completely redesigned the apartment for a futuristic look with concrete floors and partitions made of sandblasted glass.

The 120 square foot main room has backlit bookshelves. A 50 square meter dressing room is separated from the bedroom with movable partitions.
