TREND IN­SPI­RA­TION FOLK

World Travel Magazine - - Style File -

Fash­ion’s cur­rent love is to pull from tra­di­tion and her­itage, and there was a wealth of global in­flu­ence to be seen on the sea­son’s cat­walks, car­ry­ing a strong un­der­ly­ing mes­sage of cul­tural in­clu­sion. Rus­sian and Folk in­spi­ra­tion was a re­cur­ring theme in mono­chrome and bold colour com­bi­na­tions. For women con­sider tas­sels, fring­ing, em­broi­dery (Valentino’s ar­ti­sanal em­broi­dery ticks all boxes) and quirky de­tail­ing as with Dolce & Gab­bana’s jew­elled sun­glasses or Louboutin’s Vene­tian slip­per.

MOOD: FOUR SEA­SONS GRE­SHAM PALACE BU­DAPEST

Ac­knowl­edged as one of the top lux­ury brands in the world, The Four Sea­sons is also heav­ily in­volved with sus­tain­abil­ity and build­ing com­mu­ni­ties. The Gre­sham Palace on Szechenyi Square in Bu­dapest is a unique art nou­veau land­mark, com­bin­ing vin­tage his­tor­i­cal el­e­gance with ul­tra mod­ern lux­ury and is cred­ited as the most cel­e­brated ho­tel in Hun­gary. A re­stored palace built in 1906 and set amongst mu­se­ums and the Bu­dapest opera house, the build­ing has been painstak­ingly re­stored fea­tur­ing elab­o­rate me­dieval in­spired mo­saics, stained glass and mar­ble, and given a mod­ern twist with show­cases of the city’s cur­rent artists. Stay in one of 179 guest rooms, in­clud­ing 19 ex­trav­a­gant vaulted suites, and dine the Kol­lázs brasserie and bar, for a mod­ern ap­proach to Hun­gar­ian fare. Or take a break from ex­plor­ing the beauty of Bu­dapest at the state­ment in­door in­fin­ity lap pool and well­ness cen­tre. foursea­sons.com/bu­dapest
