Toronto condo to be designed by Karl Lagerfeld

Toronto is getting a dose of one of the world's iconic fashion designers, and the location couldn't be more fitting. The Art Shoppe Lofts + Condos, a new development by Freed and CD Capital Developments, will feature lobby spaces designed by Karl Lagerfeld. It's his first foray into the Canadian residential market, and one that makes sense given the former occupant of the site.

Anyone who ever passed by the Art Shoppe when it was located on Yonge between Hillsdale and Soudan will remember the avant-garde sensibilities that would inform the old window displays, particularly back in the 80s and early 90s when the store really pushed the design envelope in Toronto.

Sure, it's only the entrance space that Lagerfeld is putting his hands on, but that's arguably the most important part of a condo from a public interest standpoint (who cares what inaccessible spaces look like?). There's no word yet on what the designer has in mind, but he'll have lots of space to work with given that there are two lobbies in this dual-tower condo.
