We adore couture and can’t help but fancy everything fashionable. So, when we realized that Tortuga Bay Hotel at Puntacana Resort & Club was designed by Oscar de la Renta, our hearts skipped a beat. Could there be any better way to take a truly stylish getaway? We think not, and so we gathered 10 of the most chic hotels, each lovingly designed by a fashion icon, from around the world. Go ahead. Try one on. We think they all look fabulous on you.
Oscar de la Renta – Tortuga Bay Hotel at Puntacana Resort & Club, Dominican Republic: When you take the beauty and grace of Oscar de la Renta design and add it to 13 beachfront villas, you get a getaway that will never go out of style.
Donatella Versace – Palazzo Versace, Queensland, Australia: Glamour is taken to an entirely new level in this waterfront hotel, which was designed by Donatella Versace as a tribute to her late brother.
Giorgio Armani – Armani Hotel, Dubai: Located within the world’s tallest building—the Burj Khalifa—the Armani Hotel Dubai makes quite a statement with its minimalist modern design. Let’s be honest, would you expect anything less from Giorgio Armani?
Moschino – Maison Moschino, Milan: Storybook-esque details, such as beds draped in ball gowns and coffee tables made out of coffee cups, come to life in this converted 1840’s Neoclassical railway station, which was designed by Italian fashion house Moschino.
Ralph Lauren - Round Hill Hotel and Villas, Montego Bay, Jamaica: It’s true. Ralph Lauren makes the perfect companion to any vacation thanks to his classic yet comfortable aesthetic—can you say mahogany four-poster beds and white stone floors. And don’t miss the spa which sits in an 18th-century plantation house.
Dior - Suite at the St. Regis New York City: It must be said, “J’adore Dior,” especially when it comes to a glorious suite in a landmark hotel on 5th Avenue (where else?). The 1,700-square-foot suite capture the essence of the designer’s Montaigne headquarters in Paris. Simply imagine Louis XVI-style furniture with white carved-wood framing and gold leaf accents, and you are on your way.
Diane Von Furstenberg – Claridge’s, London: Prints are never out of style according to Diane Von Furstenberg. And the designer doesn’t shy away from tan and white leopard print rugs in 20 rooms and suites at this 1930’s hotel. Et Voila! This Art Deco icon is transformed into a fashion icon.
Christian Lacroix – Le Notre Dame, Paris: This is Christian Lacroix’s third hotel design collaboration in Paris (too much of a good thing is never enough!). And the hotel, with its eclectic medieval-meets-modern design, is a sight to behold.
Karl Lagerfeld – Schlosshotel im Grunewald, Berlin: Housed in a palace in an exclusive suburb, Karl Lagerfeld has designed a hotel fit for a king (or queen). And this is one place that fashion will always reign supreme.
Todd Oldham – The Hotel at South Beach, Miami, Florida: As if it were possible, Todd Oldham brings even more vibrant colors to this South Florida hot spot. The classic Art Deco hotel is now oh so cool.
