If Dior isn’t your thing, how about The Tiffany Suite? That powder blue is instantly recogniseable and thanks to Audrey and her toast-snacking, the jewellery brand has earned its fashion stripes. Should you be Europe-bound, there’s also the no less impressive Bottega Veneta Suite or the Couture Suite at the St Regis Rome.

Hotel Petit Moulin

It’s a wonder that Christian Lacroix finds time to design, he’s so busy playing with cushions at an array of Parisian hotels. There’s Hotel Petit Moulin. as well as the Hotel Notre Dame and Hotel Belle Chasse. Take your pick.

Bulgari Resort Bali

The Bulgari Resort in Bali is the perfect example of a high-end fashion design brand becoming an all encompassing lifestyle brand, but it’s hard to argue with a view like that.

Eloise Suite at The Plaza

The Eloise Suite at The Plaza in New York has been designed by Betsey Johnson, one of fashion’s most playful characters. The pink and gold suite reflects that and it’s certainly not for those who like their hotel rooms calming and relaxing. This is a hotel suite for a fashionable adventure.

Armani hotel Milan

If you’d rather something a little more calming, check out (and into) on of the Armani hotels. With bases in Milan and Dubai, it’s a high-end option that’s full of grace and elegance. And quite a lot of beige.

The Schiaparelli suite in London’s Mayfair hotel is the perfect base for a fashionable young thing.

The Schlosshotel in Berlin picked Karl Lagerfeld as their designer and it was a decision well made. He’s put his stamp on it without it feeling over the top. Make sure you keep an eye on the Hotel de Crillon, Paris which is reopening 2015 after a makeover from Lagerfeld.

    Oh wow, such luxurious hotels, they look like paradise on Earth. Tortuga Resort actually reminds me of a spa hotel where I spent my honeymoon. It was called Daintree Eco Lodge (here if anyone’s interested http://www.hotelyouwant.com/).
