Karl Lagerfeld to Design the Lobbies of The Estates at Acqualina

Fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld

The Trump Group, led by Jules and Eddie Trump, have created an unprecedented partnership with the world’s most distinguished designer and fashion icon, Karl Lagerfeld.  As head designer and creative director for both Fendi and Chanel, Lagerfeld is notorious for his exquisite style and eye for detail when it comes to fashion, but the Estates at Acqualina will be his first real estate project in the United States.

Lagerfeld will design the two residential spaces for The Estates at Acqualina, the brand new, ultra-luxury residential development on the grounds of Acqualina, a Forbes Five Star and AAA Five Diamond resort.

“Simply put, The Estates at Acqualina will be the world’s finest residences,” said Jules Trump, developer of The Estates at Acqualina. “Eddie and I wanted our entrance lobbies to be the piece de resistance of our new project, and who better to create these than the master of modern creativity: Karl Lagerfeld. Karl is the world’s most acclaimed designer, and we believe his high-end designs will be greatly valued by our residents, who desire an incomparable level of opulence, luxury, design and style.”

Set to be outfitted with custom furnishings created by the mastermind himself, the lobbies will entirely reflect Lagerfeld’s supreme style and keen eye for detail.

“I am excited by the opportunity to design the lobbies of The Estates at Acqualina and take great pride in knowing that the spaces I create will be such important spaces in the building,” said Karl Lagerfeld. “Not only are they significant because they offer the first impression of the building, they are also the spaces where people come to socialize daily; they are like a common living room. My designs are inspired by the look of each lobby, the building and the destination of Florida especially. The climate is very warm there and I wanted something fresh.”

When completed, The Estates at Acqualina will offer 265 luxurious residences from three to seven bedrooms in two, 50-story boutique towers, Via Acqualina 777 and Via Acqualina 888. The Estates will also include Villa Acqualina, offering more than 45,000 square feet of amenities including a spa and fitness center, a world-class restaurant overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and Circus Maximus, a full floor of unprecedented amenities including an ice skating rink, bowling lanes and a movie theater. It will also boast a Wall Street Trader’s Club room where residents will have access to ticker tape, computers and a board room. The Estates’ 5.6 acres of grounds and gardens will boast lush landscaped gardens, multiple infinity pools, a FlowRider® for surfers, a basketball court, a bocce court, a dog park, soccer field, a beachfront restaurant and 502 feet of Atlantic oceanfront with Five Star beach and pool services. 24-hour valet, 24-hour security services, a full service resident concierge and a house Rolls-Royce will also be available.

The Estates at Acqualina recently launched a $10 million, 10,000 square-foot, fully furnished sales gallery that doubles as a mock condo unit so that buyers can visualize the end product in its entirety. “I can’t imagine anyone has ever done a sales center like this,” Trump said. “The actual unit is so extraordinary, you can see from end to end its openness.”
