When Fashion and Hotels Collide

Luxury fashion and luxury travel seem to go hand in hand. For the most discriminating globetrotter, hotels are much more than a place to drop the bags and crash. Being surrounded in the digs produced by international fashion royalty, these are simply some of the most gorgeous hotels you could stay in throughout the world.

The Bvlgari name has long held great prestige as far as jewelry goes. In 2001, they partnered with the Ritz Carlton brand as one of the first fashion labels to partner with a major hotelier to create a super brand. The luxury is limitless in these hotels, which span the planet, allowing any traveler the availability of unsurpassed quality, service, and style wherever they may roam. From the streets of Milan to coasts of Bali, posh surroundings in exceptional taste are never too far away.

Claridge’s in London is one of the finest luxury spots anywhere in the world. When Diane Von Furstenberg, a literal goddess in the world of fashion, decided to spread her wings into hotel territory, she certainly pushed the limits of her own creativity. In her designs, she spared no detail. Claridge’s is a hotel known for their great influence in the world of art. Located in the Mayfair district of London, and a part of the legendary Art Deco hotel, when you stay here you are in very close proximity to London’s best shopping centers, as well as Hyde Park. The lovely Ms. Von Furstenberg put her signature style on everything she touched within the suites she designed. For the fashion mogul, this interior undertaking was an entirely new venture, and it is safe to say that she passed with flying colors and vibrant prints!

It does not require much guesswork to understand the beauty of Florence’s Hotel Lungarno. Originally built in the 17th century, the brilliant Ferragamo family restored the property to bear a very understated elegance. Rich in classical Italian elegance, with a prominent international flair, the style in this hotel has no limits. Worth the visit alone is the amazing collection of modern art, which includes originals by such masters as Pablo Picasso and Jean Cocteau.

If you are craving a stylish place to stay, nothing will beat the opulence of a hotel done by one of fashion’s legends. The combination of amenities and the unbelievable perks will sweep you off your feet!
