Unkle Karl, being the rolling-in-dough oddball that he is, recently drenched an entire hotel room in chocolate. As if directing actress a series of short films starring Rachel Bilson wasn't enough, Karl continues his collabo with ice cream giant Magnum, after the said-series of short films with a hotel suite made entirely of chocolate. Expertly brought to life by master chocolatier and chocolate sculptor Patrick Roger, 'The Magnum Chocolate Suite' in Paris contains the ultimate piece de resistance: an edible incarnation of Baptiste Giabiconi, the multi-tasking model and pop star who also happens to be Lagerfeld's muse.
"It has been an absolute pleasure to design the Magnum Chocolate Suite. My idea was to flirt with a mix of modern and traditional French influences to create something remarkable," says Lagerfeld. However he sadly won't be enjoying the gastronomical side of the collaboration, as he recently told W magazine : "My doctor told me that sugar wasn't needed for me so I haven't touched it in ten years. I like chocolate. I don't eat it, but I like the smell of it. People can drink with their eyes; I can eat with my nose. I would love to have a perfume based on chocolate." - Telegraph
