Christian Lacroix, who designed the incredible decor at your boutique hotel, was heavily inspired by the travel fashions of the great 18th century of French art. Another way to continue your vintage, fashion tour of Paris is to recharge your batteries amidst the pomp of the Ancien Régime. How lucky you are! The Louvre Palace is just a short walk away, and the Château de Versailles is easily accessible by train! What more could you ask for?
After resting a moment in the old-style vintage world of great explorers, as revisited by Christian Lacroix, it will only take you a few minutes to go from your room to the palace of the kings of France in Paris: the celebrated Louvre Museum. There, with your handy express pass, you can cut the lines to admire da Vinci’s Mona Lisa, the Winged Victory of Samothrace and the Venus de Milo!
But the treasure hunt for vintage art and other ancient touches continues among the Apollos and the nymphs of the Château de Versailles. In the space of an hour by train (on the U line from La Défense), you can change centuries and find motifs and patterns here and there that Christian Lacroix might have appreciated. Along with other pleasant experiences, enjoy the Fountains Night Show, a veritable extravaganza of a voyage with fountains, music and fireworks (now through September 19).
