Luxury Hotels

Sybaritic Single predicts more luxury hotel names

The Sybaritic Single adores luxury hotels as well as the world of fashion. From the Dior and Tiffany suites at St. Regis New York to the Fendi Private Suites in Rome – whenever the is a fashion element in a luxury hotel, he definitely goes for it.

Boucheron, the first jeweller to venture onto the Place Vendôme in 1893, seems to follow suit. A few months ago, it unveiled its restored headquarters at 26, Place Vendôme in Paris which many years ago was known as Hôtel de Nocé (opened in 1717). Curiously, the top floor is now transformed into a luxurious one-bedroom apartment called Le 26 and equipped for overnight guests. It offers sweeping views of the Place Vendôme and is attended by a dedicated butler from the Ritz Paris, for a truly immersive experience.

There are also rumours that Dior will also get its own beyond-luxury guest suites on the top floor of its historic boutique at 30, Avenue Montaigne, which is now closed for renovation until 2021. Until then, most of its clients will still take residence at Hôtel Plaza Athénée across the road – while the lucky few might spend a night at Château de La Colle Noire, historic residence of Christian Dior in Montauroux near Grasse.

With the addition of Belmond in its portfolio, expanding presence of Cheval Blanc and ultra-luxury hotel suites by certain fashion brands, LVMH seems to have a keen interest in the exceptional art de recevoir (art of hospitality).

Should more luxury hotels seek synergies with the world of fashion before this trend goes out of fashion? “Absolutely!” says the Sybaritic Single as he books his next suite, designed by Karl Lagerfeld.
