More About La Maison des Champs Elysees:
Martin Margiela seems to be keeping busy despite the exit from his fashion house a few years ago. His latest reincarnation? The design of seven signature suites and 10 rooms for the Hotel la Maison des Champs Elysees. Margiela has transformed the grand old dame into a sleek, sparkling playground with his signature white, gray and black palette. Not up on your history? The spot was once the home of princess d'essing, the duchess of rivoli, dating back to 1864. It doesn't show its age, especially after noticeable margiela updates like the "closet of rarities" suite with both black walls and wooden floors, and a cabinet of curiosities (of course). With a location tucked behind the glam shops on the avenue montaigne, many of maison's rooms offer quiet, chill vibes (espesh those that face the majestic private gardens). When it's time to leave the haute new room, check out la table du huit, the hotel's chic eatery and cigar bar (also designed by margiela).
