Puttin’ on the Ritz
In honor of Paris Fashion Week and in anticipation of the Hotel Ritz reopening next year, I thought I would post these chic photos of Kate Moss taken before the closure by Tim Walker for Vogue. Everyone is hoping that they haven’t ruined the iconic design so it will be interesting to see how Thierry W. Despont has updated the historic hotel.
“The Ritz Paris is approaching its 2015 reopening after an unprecedented restoration. The legendary hotel will open its doors with 72 suites, including 15 historic one-of-a-kind prestige suites, and 71 rooms. Renowned interior architect Thierry W. Despont is overseeing the restoration which will unveil three restaurants, three bars, including famed Bar Hemingway, and gorgeous gardens and terraces with retractable roofs and floor heating to be enjoyed year-round. École Ritz Escoffier will benefit from a third demonstration kitchen and the historic Salon Proust with its wood-burning fireplace will offer Ritz afternoon tea. The hotel’s signature Spa will feature an indoor pool and a modern fitness center with private training rooms, while a discreet tunnel will be available for completely private guest arrivals and departures.”
Bon week-end !
