New York: First Kanye, Now Karl Takes Over The Mercer Hotel

Way, way, way back before Kanye West turned into one-half of Kimye, he once semi-permanently lived at Soho’s ultra cool Mercer Hotel. He then later hooked up The Mercer star with tickets to his concert. An employee even wrote in to tell HotelChatter just how nice Kanye was to them.

We wonder if Uncle Karl will be just as nice.

Page Six reports that fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld has taken over three floors of the hotel while he’s in town to celebrate his item for Louis Vuitton–a $ 175,00 punching bag emblazoned with LVs. Hmmm…we also can’t help but wonder if he’s looking to The Mercer for ideas for his next hotel
