Top Ten Luxury
Hotel du Petit Moulin, The Marais

The Luxury Travel Bible struggled over its choice between two of Lacroix's hotels - do we go with his first or his latest, Hotel Le Notre Dame with its divine views. After much discussion (and not a few petit fours) we've gone with the hotel in which Lacroix stays all began. Like his fashion, Christian Lacroix  leaves no detail alone in this 17 room hotel. Each has been created with a unique atmosphere that Lacroix states is meant to take you on a journey through the many faces of the Marais, which still reigns uber-cool in Paris. You can wend your way through the maze-like corridors and along the way you are treated to a room with a showgirl mural that looks like a love letter to the Moulin Rouge and another with a Zen-inspired den. A Baroque style explosion of red, jewels and plumes is vintage Lacroix, but frankly his take on Scandinavian clean is new to The Luxury Travel Bible. Lacroix never strays too far from Sacred Heart imagery which turns up on walls in hand drawings or in the shape of Venetian glass mirrors.

Only Lacroix can pull off clashing a bright red Jacobsen chair against a black and white Toile wallpaper. It is to be applauded.
