The 5 Chicest Hotel Suites Around the World Created by Top Fashion Designers


Today, fashion designers are finding ways to extend their creative vision beyond their labels. Since brands have become more than just about clothes, promoting a lifestyle is now part of most of these companies’ mission. So naturally, when the world’s best hotels pursue a new location or a complete overhaul, they will now call on world-renowned fashion designers to blend their trademark style with that of the property. Here’s a look at five of the hotels that have set the bar for such collaborations around the world.

Matthew Williamson and The Belmond La Residencia, Mallorca

British designer, Matthew Williamson has been a long-time admirer of Deià, Mallorca’s charming coastal village known for inspiring artists, musicians, and writers alike. So when Williamson was asked by the Belmond Residencia Mallorca to design a suite that would combine his bold, colorful style with the rustic decadence of Deià, it was a no brainer. Suite 67, with its lush botanical prints, warm tiled floors and colorful vintage decor, is officially accepting guests this month. belmond.com

Diane von Furstenberg, a loyal guest of Claridge’s in London, was enlisted to design a suite at the hotel in 2010. The Grand Piano Suite is an embodiment of both the hotel’s Art Deco heritage and the designer’s glamorous style. With DVF’s bold patterns and graphic florals covering the room, the space is timeless and wrapped in decadent elegance. claridges.co.uk

Karl Lagerfeld has had his hand in hospitality since he designed a suite for the cool Patrick Hellman Scholsshotel in Berlin. Most recently, he was involved in the renovation of Paris’ iconic Hotel de Crillon to oversee the design of the Grands Appartements, a set of two decadent suites and a room overlooking the Place de la Concorde. Karl’s vision of Parisian modernity fused with his authority on 18th century antiques (the hotel opened its doors in 1909), made him the perfect designer for the job. rosewoodhotels.com

Round Hill Hotel and Villas enlisted the help of Ralph Lauren, whose second home is Montego Bay, to redesign its Pineapple House. The Pineapple House is comprised of 36 oceanfront guest rooms decorated with furniture from Lauren’s home collection, encapsulating both the breezy spirit of Montego Bay and the nautical elegance of the Ralph Lauren brand. roundhill.com

The Lily Pulitzer Cottage at Nantucket’s beloved luxury hotel, White Elephant, opened its doors in April. The redesigned cottage features blue and white wallpaper and furniture, and decorative accents such as woven baskets, hand-shelled mirrors and trays and candles in Lily’s signature prints. The interior is relaxed and playful, much like the Lily Pulitzer brand, and features neutral tones to embrace the hotel’s coastal New England charm. whiteelephanthotel.com
