Meet Me at Le Meurice
Perhaps it is the location on the Rue de Rivoli, just across from the Tuileries Garden. Or the views of the Seine and The Eiffel Tower. Or the Louis XVI interiors. Anyway, at Le Meurice, you’ll feel like Gigi.
Rooted, in fact, in the Belle Epoque, Le Meurice is reassuringly grand. Built in the palace style, with rows of tall windows and mansard roof, it gives a sense of belonging. Here, it promises, is a little room just right for you.
Gigi might have been happy just to stroll through the lobby, to soak up the hotel’s history. And indulge in tres chic people-watching. Other fictional characters have loved to stay at Le Meurice. Mystery writer Dorothy L. Sayers was often low on funds herself, but she made sure that her sleuth, Lord Peter Wimsey, stopped in at Le Meurice whenever he needed restoration after he solved a case or returned from a tramp in Corsica. Good enough for me.
Let’s pack for our stay. It is a perfect opportunity to indulge in the finest loungewear. An elegant coverup to start. The Christine Vancouver Silk Velvet Kimono will do double duty, either in the bedroom over a chemise or on the town as a cocktail coat. So packable. Silk PJs next:. Olivia Von Halle’s Daria Navy Cropped Pajama. And be sure to include a little drama. Christine Vancouver again. This time the Ombre Silk Crepe Audrey Gown. Memorable with its deco wide straps and dip-dyed body in shifting shades of grey. Pair with Morpho + Luna’s Bianca Blue Tropical Print Robe in lightest silk. Just a few special items offer a wealth of possibility for mix and match, whether you stay in or step out.
Let JV be your wake-up call for another magical day in the City of Light.
