The Surrey Showcases Top Chef's Jewelry LineDecember 19, 2010 By: David Eisen
The Surrey, on Manhattan's Upper East Side, has looked to reality TV for its newest partnership. The hotel will showcase Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi's new collection of luxury jewelry called The Padma Collection. Highlighting the hotel’s location near the famed Madison Avenue retailers, the partnership offers guests a first glimpse of the The Padma Collection’s Fall/Winter 2010 line of pieces, which, we hear, are inspired by her international travels. Available through March 2011, hotel guests may also purchase The Padma Collection directly through The Surrey’s concierge.
We hear Lakshmi is a big fan of the hotel and its recent $60 million renovaiton. Part of her inspiration for her jewelry line came from the hotel and its Beaux-art design. The Surrey is the first hotel to partner with The Padma Collection and feature the exclusive line. "I love The Surrey hotel," she says. "It is a place that has served as a stylish home away from home when I needed it, and I’m delighted that I can be back at the hotel through featuring my jewelry collection in their armoire."
In her day job, Lakshmi is the host of Bravo’s “Top Chef” and has experienced a prolific career in fashion as a model for a decade. “For me, whether its food or fashion, it’s about taste; about curating the best of what I’ve hunted and gathered from around the world to create something beautiful for the senses,” said Padma. “I love The Surrey hotel. It is a place that has served as a stylish home away from home when I needed it, and I’m delighted that I can be back at the hotel through featuring my jewelry collection in their lovely armoire.”
