La Vigie – Karl Lagerfeld‘s former mysterious Monaco mansion opened to the public for the first time to showcase works by well known designers, artists and architects.
Considered one of the finest properties on the French Riviera, La Vigie – “the lookout tower” was built in 1902 for British publishing magnate Sir William Ingram and was occupied by German troops during World War II.
“It’s the safest place in the world. It’s impossible to get near the place. No public road passes by and you have to go through two gates to get inside. It doesn’t even have an address, so no one can write to me here.” – the designer said in an old interview.
Lately, the mansion became an exclusive hotel, and during the weekend played host to the inaugural collectible design fair Nomad.
What do you think of the opulent mansion?
