CLAR­IDGE’S

Emirates Woman - - #london -

A Lon­don leg­end at its best, lo­cated right in the heart of May­fair, Clar­idges is as dis­creet as it is op­u­lent and showy. Style and fash­ion are in­grained in its rich his­tory. In the 1950s this was a home away from home for fash­ion icon Au­drey Hep­burn. Diane von Fursten­berg’s long as­so­ci­a­tion with the in­te­ri­ors of the ho­tel be­gan in the 1970s. Kate Moss cel­e­brated her 30th birth­day at the ho­tel back in the day. And Lux­ury fur­ni­ture de­signer David Lin­ley has 25 suites here. The ho­tel has fas­ci­nated peo­ple over the years, so the BBC ran a doc­u­men­tary in 2012 which went be­hind the scenes of the his­toric ho­tel, ex­plor­ing its past, present and fu­ture. In De­cem­ber, Dior marks the be­gin­ning of the fes­tive sea­son with their daz­zling Christ­mas tree cre­ated ex­clu­sively for the ho­tel. An ad­dress here, be it for a few days only, is some­thing worth show­ing off.
