Design Contract takes a look at collaborations between fashion designers and luxury hotels  interior design, from Tiffany’s  Suite in St.Regis, New York to Dior suite in Hotel Majestic Barriere, Cannes.

Have you noticed that when a fashion designer takes on the role of hotel designer, you really don’t know exactly what you’re gonna get? Once the initial hotel of a fashion house opens, we can then look for signature details or some visibly explainable transition from, say, a three-piece suit to a three-room suite. So, all commercial architects and interior designers – get inspired by glamorous fashion designers hotels projects worldwide! Design Contract also will suggest some ideas for your suite interior design project.

Diane von Furstenberg suites in Claridge’s, London

The Grand Piano Suite in Claridge’s is a favourite of Diane von Furstenberg – unsurprising considering she designed it’s luxury interior. When she wasn’t hanging out in her New York pad, this was where famous fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg stayed in London for more than 40 years. Following a complete renovation in 2010, the famous Claridge’s hotel in London now boasts 20 suites designed by this lady who is known as the “Queen of prints”. Decorated with personal touches including cashmere blankets, wallpaper, fabrics with her iconic prints, and even photos that the stylist has taken during her travels, the suites at Claridge’s are contemporary and comfortable to make you feel right at home, just like Diane. A night in one of the suites in Claridge’s will cost you from 419 euro.

Dior suite in Hotel Majestic Barriere, Cannes

Another luxury interior design project is suite Dior. Inspired by the designer’s Paris headquarters and features various subtle references to the fashion house as well as impressive Bil Donovan illustrations of vintage Dior designs. Dior suite is a kingdom of pure luxury- light and dark stone floors, Chevron hardwood floors (as in Haussman architecture flats in Paris), a gallery leading to a dining room with a large, refined, imposing table in the centre surrounded by medallion chairs covered in grey fabric and silver seams. Attention is drawn to a detail in the lounge: the bright red cushions on the sofa, which is exactly the same colour as the cushions designed by Christian Dior in 1947. The matching rooms give the impression of ever returning seasons because grey is the colour of expectation, which gets lighter day by day. This grey was one of the charms of Monsieur Christian. Majestic Barrière wanted it, the House of Dior made it possible.

Luxury interior design projectsChristian Lacroix rooms in the Notre Dame Hotel, Paris

Hotel du Petit Moulin in Paris has been designed exclusively by Christian Lacroix, who transformed a 17th-century building into what its owners claim is “a true couture hotel”. In practice this means that each room is different. The unique Notre Dame hotel, boasting amazing views of the Notre Dame in Paris, has 26 luxury suites all designed by controversial designer Christian Lacroix. True to his style, the rooms boast contemporary décor with Baroque influences. The building itself is more than 400 years old and has been totally refurbished inside. A combination of materials was used in the interior design including velvet, leather, carpets and marble, etc. Here you will find a hotel with quite a medieval and elaborate look, very typical of Lacroix. The Notre Dame Hotel doesn’t have a restaurant however, there is a lounge bar and breakfast service to the rooms is on offer.

Tiffany Suite in St.Regis, New York

Featuring strong references to this iconic brand etched in the mind of any woman that has seen the film “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” with Audrey Hepburn, the Tiffany luxury suite at the St. Regis Hotel is also renowned for having collaborated with prestigious fashion brands such as Bottega Veneta. The sumptuous detail conveys the luxury that is associated with this famous jeweler. From the dining room, designed like the characteristic box of the Tiffany brand and walls painted in the signature Tiffany blue, to the furniture making reference to the classic Tiffany engagement ring, this suite is pure luxury. Finally, the Tiffany suite in the St. Regis Hotel in New York boasts amazing views of Central Park.

St. Regis Hotel – some of the priciest real estate in the world are just perfect place for luxury interior design project for Bentley. The classic Speed Six outside led to a new launch inside: the Bentley Suite at the St. Regis, the luxury marque’s first “branded experience” in a hotel room. Renting for a substantial $9,500 per night, the 15th-floor corner suite is meant to introduce St. Regis guests to the craftsmanship, materials, luxury, and style that Bentley embodies.

And while neither the hotel nor Daniele Ceccomori, the suite’s designer, will say for sure, it may conceivably be the first of several such Bentley Suites in St. Regis hotels worldwide. The suite also comes with access to the 2013 St. Regis Bentley Mulsanne commissioned by the hotel with a bottle cooler and crystal champagne flutes, St. Regis crests on the headrests and personalised tread plates–though only within a 10-block radius, apparently. Entering the 1,700-square-foot suite, the first thing you notice is the lovely smell of leather–which in the foyer is laid in a herringbone pattern on the floor.


Ceccomori noted that it was a tougher grade of hide than Bentley uses for its interior leather, for durability, but that it would acquire scuffs and marks over time, “like a classic car.” On the foyer table, an overscale chrome model of the Flying-B hood ornament is mounted on an oblong plinth, resembling on first glance an ornate old-style flat iron. Behind it is a round mirror and a diamond-quilted leather wall in a pale beige color with its stitching in Living Green, one of a few new interior accent colors Bentley Motors plans to introduce in future vehicles. The bedroom has side cabinets inspired by the fold-out cupboards in the back of Bentley’s XP9 F sport-utility concept, with two walls that retain the old-world St. Regis plaster details and two in contracting shades that blend Bentley materials, colors, and textures.



In general, the suite interior design project is quiet and masculine in tone, with dark browns, greys, cream, and ivory colors, large-scale but not ponderous furniture, and many playful touches that are meant to indicate an evolution of the Bentley esthetic. Curtains are edged in seat-belt webbing, for instance, and glossy white barrel side tables open to reveal orange interiors for an unexpected splash of color. Trim and furniture materials include a variety of fine woods, leathers, woven fabrics, and stainless steel. The living room has a seating area, a sideboard, and a desk with floating drawers, though we noted–sadly–a typo on the quotation woven into the leather writing pad. The flexible dining-room space can double as a conference room, with a large flat-screen display hidden behind buff-colored square-paneled doors. Analog Breitling clocks over the screen show the times in New York, London, Moscow, and Riyadh. And overhead, a chandelier of three rings angled in layers contains hundreds of white LEDs illuminating rectangular crystals, alluding to the LEDs in a Bentley’s running lights.

The one and half bathrooms of the Bentley Suite are still standard-issue St. Regis. Marque touches to those rooms will come in a later phase, he noted.The suite’s artworks mix images and artifacts from the classic Bentley racing period–the late 1920s and early 1930’s among furniture that has some muted Art Deco allusions.
