Karl and his chocolate-model: Baptiste Giabiconi as Sarotti-Mohr.
SUITE DREAMS: “I like to do things I’m not supposed to do,” Karl Lagerfeld said about his plans to join TV presenter Stéphane Bern on the national France 2 station this morning and give live commentary about the royal wedding in London. The multitasking designer was hosting a luncheon Thursday to unveil his latest design: a hotel suite at La Réserve constructed entirely of chocolate, complete with a life-size likeness of his sidekick, model Baptiste Giabiconi, lounging on a quilted white bedspread edged in delicate broderie anglaise. Master chocolate maker Patrick Roger employed 1.5 tons of something asparagus-thin Lagerfeld never eats to create the scented spectacle for ice cream brand Magnum, complete with a chocolate carpet and chocolate-book-filled chocolate nightstand.
Over a low-calorie lunch — with slivers of pineapple for dessert — journalists lobbed questions about why Lagerfeld takes on an ever-surprising array of projects. “I do what I can relate to and I haven’t done before,” he explained. “I like to do things quickly because I’m easily bored.” So is there anything left for him to do? “I can make a list of what I’ve done, but I cannot make a list of what I have yet to do,” was his retort.(Source: WWD )
In 1868 Hugo Hoffmann opened a company to produce sweets. The location of this shop was in Mohrenstraße 10 in Berlin. The Sarotti-Moor (Mohr) was created in 1918 for the 50 year anniversary of the company. This traditional German brand is only known in its home market.
