German fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld
is as known for his snarky attitude, white hair and black shades as much as he is for being the creative director for Chanel. Usually pretty private — he only just recently fessed up to being born in 1935 — he decided to open his Paris apartment to May's issue of French Architectural Digest
. If you were expecting an explosion of color and accents, you'll be disappointed because this apartment is as stark and minimalist as you can get without living on an actual science fiction movie set. Taking a peek into someone's living space always gives you an insight to their psyche and if his home says anything, it definitely says he likes to keep it simple.
