The latest collabo in Haute Hotels marries fashion icon Diane Von Furstenberg of wrap dress-come- “The City” fame with Mayfair’s premiere 5-star luxury hotel Claridge’s to design 20 sumptuous rooms and suites, 4 of which recently opened to the public just two months ago in June.
The mixture of playful prints and patterns, bold colors and bespoke furnishings, as well as personal photographs taken by Diane herself makes you feel like you’re living in her own chic pied-á-tèrre on the Left Bank in Paris.
Having been a famed client of Claridge’s for over 30 years, Diane suggested that their art deco decor could use a mini-makeover to which they exuberantly requested that she try her hand at the renovation herself. I mean who better to revive this traditional establishment than fashion’s most sought-after modern gal-on-the-go?
Delighted at the looming task at hand, this Belgian-born fashion designer enlisted her longtime pal and venerated decorator Olivier Gelbsmann to assist in this fabulous transformation.
“Claridge’s is the most glamorous hotel in the world,” said von Furstenberg, “hotels like this don’t exist anymore and the legacy must be respected!” Italian dressing tables, Middle Eastern cocktail bars, custom furniture crafted by British artisans, Parisian glass fixtures, and Oriental textiles…
Claridge’s by DVF is indeed the ultimate epitome of Modern Global Glamour! From one fashionista to the next, book your next stay HERE to pretend you’re Posh Spice on holiday with your gorgeous futbol-playing husband. Triple tots not included, but I’m sure you’ll find plenty of ways to stay occupied.
