Fashion Hotels: Maison Martin Margiela Redesigns La Maison Champs-Elysées

La Maison Champs-Elysees, Paris

Fashionistas now have a new place to hit the hay during Paris Fashion Week. La Maison Champs-Elysées—a 67-room hotel just a stone’s throw from the famous boulevard—enlisted the star talent at Maison Martin Margiela for a redesign. (Since the Belgian-born fashion leader launched the label in 1988, Maison Martin Margiela has been celebrated for its deconstructionist creativity. Though the famously low-profile Margiela quietly left the fashion house in 2009, it's continued to blaze a trail in the fashion world.) The Financial Times is reporting that the big renovation has just been unveiled. “Expect meticulously under-styled cool coupled with trompe-l’oeil dramatics,” says Travelista Maria Shollenbarger.

The design team waved their wand over the hotel’s public spaces, including the restaurant and bar, along with 10 guest rooms and seven suites which are now billed as “couture” rooms. The rest of the guest rooms remain unchanged.  Also of note: The sun-lit meeting rooms which can accommodate up to 220 people for receptions and meetings in the heart of Paris. Rooms are priced from 300 euros per night.

La Maison Champs-Elysées is not the first hotel to collaborate with Maison Martin Margiela. Les Sources de Caudalie, the destination spa resort near Bordeaux, unveiled an all-white suite, signed Maison Martin Margiela, a few years back.
