Anya Hindmarch is one of the world’s foremost accessories designers thanks to her eponymous label, Anya Hindmarch. We love these details from the workshop: electroplating the gold finish on the Anya Hindmarch Crisp Packet clutch. See it in finished form, and the rest of her collection, at one of the 50 stores in 9 countries, including flagship stores on Sloane Street in London and Madison Avenue in New York, both only moments from Sofitel. Magnifique!

BUCCELLATI / LUXE
While Paris has Van Cleef & Arpels, Milano prides itself on the tradition-steeped design of Buccellati. Milanese locals know the brand as the country’s most exclusive luxury jewelry destination, but you won’t need to travel to Via Monte Napoleone to find the luxury designs. Buccellati can be found in Sofitel cities worldwide including Beverly Hills, Paris and London.
Located on the tree-lined boulevard Avenida da Liberdade, just step from central Lisbon’s most prestigious boutiques and cafés, Sofitel Lisbon Liberdade is a 5-star luxury hotel with a difference. Warm colors, pampering Hermès lotions; the scent of fresh flowers; crystal clear sound from a Bose music system and more. Experience luxury Lisbon at its best.
PHILADELPHIA / ART
The Augustus Saint-Gaudens sculpture Diana has adorned the top of Philadelphia Museum of Art's Great Stair Hall for more than eighty years. Not far from Sofitel Philadelphia, Designed by Stanford White, it was created in 1892–93 as a gilded weather vane for the tower of New York’s Madison Square Garden. Conservators recently restored “Diana,” including the application of 180 square feet of gold leaf to restore its original shine. How magnifique!
ISLAMIC ART / LOUVRE
The Louvre boasts one of the world’s finest collections in the field of Islamic Art, brilliantly illustrating the world of Islam’s culture. Some 3,000 objects are on display, spanning 1,300 years of history and three continents, from Spain to Southeast Asia. Just as impressive is the architecture of the Denon wing’s glass structure, designed by the internationally renowned Mario Belliini and Rudy Ricciotti. Don’t miss it!
