What’s hot in London and Man­hat­tan.

STAY Im­merse your­self in the thick of London’s art and fash­ion scenes at Brown’s Ho­tel in tony May­fair. The hand­some whites­tucco build­ing is sur­rounded by gal­leries and flag­ship de­signer bou­tiques—stay dur­ing London Fash­ion Week and you’ll likely hap­pen upon mod­els in the ban­quet rooms pre­par­ing for hot-ticket pre­sen­ta­tions held down the road at Amanda Wake­ley or Vic­to­ria Beck­ham. The artis­tic ex­pe­ri­ence con­tin­ues back in your suite, where wal­nut dressers and vel­vet-clad head­boards are paired with works from buzzy con­tem­po­rary Bri­tish artists such as Tracey Emin and pho­tog­ra­pher Mat Col­lishaw. HANG OUT The nearby Royal Academy of Arts is show­ing Rubens and His Legacy: Van Dyck to Cézanne un­til April 10. Get tick­ets through Brown’s, which has a spe­cial pack­age that also in­cludes a wel­come bot­tle of Ruinart bub­bles. SHOP Take in the street-style scene at the Dover Street Mar­ket, where you can score eye- catch­ing pieces from up- and­com­ing de­sign­ers like Bri­tish fash­ion dar­ling Si­mone Rocha.
