Blog 16: Fashion Hotels
“Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street; fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening." said Coco Chanel. I agree with that. You can make your life fashionable by styling it right!
Designers have influenced our lives in ways beyond dressing. From owning fashion labels to designing hotels, they do it all. In this blog, I am calling out all fashionistas to read my round up of the most fashionable hotels around the world.
1- Located above Fendi's boutique flagship store in Rome, the Fendi Private Suites make up the brand's first hotel. Comprised of just seven impeccably designed suites, the hotel epitomizes the ultimate in elegance and exclusivity. With exclusive access to and immersion into the Fendi world, it redefines luxury for sophisticated customers who are looking for privacy as well as a unique experience in the heart of Rome. All the suites mirror Fendi's philosophy of innovation and tradition, artisanship and luxury.

2- With 6 functional Bulgari Hotels and a few more in the pipeline, the Italian fine jewellery and watch brand has certainly diversified into the hospitality sector with high-end ultra fashionable hotels. The brand's aim is to convey the excitement of the Bvlgari brand, its timeless glamour and its heritage of a magnificent Roman jeweller. Each hotel combines local culture, sustainability and innovative luxury to give its guests the most designer experience. The hotels in Bali, Beijing and Dubai are the most notable ones in the brand's portfolio.

3- The Emaar and Armani collaboration has given birth to two Armani Hotels, one in Milan and another in Dubai. Known for class-apart service and luxury with a human component, these fashionable hotels promise a 'home-away-from-home' experience. With a Lifestyle Manager appointed to every guest at the time of booking, everything is taken care of discreetly. From facilitating your arrival experience in the comfort of your own suite to personalizing your journey with customized service delivery; the Lifestyle Manager will look after all your needs.

4- In Milan, Italy, the Palazzo Versace is the home of Versace, one of the most legendary fashion brands in the world. When it came to opening the world’s first fashion-inspired hotel, there was only one possible name: Palazzo Versace. Palazzo Versace Gold Coast is everything you would expect in a hotel from the world of Versace: an exclusive waterfront setting, spectacular architecture, opulent accommodation, a design distinguished by Versace bespoke furnishings and Italian craftsmanship, extraordinary service and an ambience of pure glamour. Versace does boast of another hotel, the Palazzo Versace Dubai.

5- Upcoming shopping spree to Paris and can't choose where to stay? I've got you covered. Look nowhere other than Maison Margiela's La Maison Champs Elysees. The fruit of a collaboration with a fashion designer, the hotel's stunning decor is full of playful surprises and provides a wonderful environment for your stay in Paris. Each suite is tastefully designed and heightens the exuberance of the location of the hotel at the heart of Paris' Golden Triangle. The hotel provides artistic glimpses into the history of the city while serving guests with utmost hospitality.

6- With six hotels, a presence at sea, and five dining spots, the Lungarno Collection has its roots in the journey of shoemaker-turned-fashion-icon Salvatore Ferragamo. In Leonardo, Salvatore’s son's words: “Like a fashion collection respects the different styles of their clientele, the Lungarno Collection luxury hotels also offer a beautiful selection of classic and contemporary solutions to cater to the individuality of each traveler.” Hotel Lungarno is strikingly different from the other hotels in the portfolio, housing over 450 paintings highlighting Picasso, Cocteau, and famous Italian artists. The Archiepiscopal Seminary, Europe’s oldest and the second oldest in the world, lies in the heart of Milan’s fashion quarter. It will house the upcoming Lungarno Collection hotel - Portrait Milano in 2021.

Honestly, I'm intrigued. And confused. I can't even choose what to wear in the morning let alone be able to choose a fashion hotel I'd like to stay at. I know I want to visit some of these very soon. What about you? Let me know in the comments!
Stay fashionable and chic always,
