BEIJING (AP) — Karl Lagerfeld and a Macau casino operator have announced plans for the Chanel designer to create his first hotel.

Lagerfeld and the Sociedade de Jogos de Macau said Friday the 270-room Karl Lagerfeld Hotel will open in 2017 in a 20-story tower in the tourist enclave in southern China.

In a joint statement, Lagerfeld said, "An entire hotel designed by me. It's the first time for me!"

The hotel will be part of a complex of casinos, restaurants and shopping.

Lagerfeld is chief designer for the Chanel and Fendi fashion houses and also has his own label. In addition to clothing, he has designed a can for Diet Coke.
