THE CHRISTMAS TROPHY
Every year, Sofitel launches a Christmas Trophy competition, showcasing a collection of Bûche de Noël, a traditional French specialty dessert created by all Sofitel properties worldwide. Over the next few days we will feature all of the celebrated creations from around our pastry kitchens in North America.
Lets begin in the location fast becoming the capital of cool (and of course the capital of the United States of America) Washington DC! Vote for your favorite here.
ART BASEL FAVORITE #4
Now that Art Basel Miami has wrapped we’re taking a look back at some of our favorite pieces. One of our favorite collaborations was between the incredibly popular and chic Parisian retailer Colette and cool Miami boutique Alchemist, who produced an ’art drive-thru’ for the festival. A ‘Damien Hirst’ with a side of ‘Takashi Murakami’ anyone?
ART BASEL FAVORITE #5
Now that Art Basel is over, we’re highlighting some of our favorites from Miami through this week. To begin, what could be more chic than a Swarovski crystal-covered Heartschallenger ice cream truck? Artists covered the truck bumpers to hubcaps with around half a million sparkling crystals from Swarovski, finished off with a pink hearts and a unicorn logo on the hood. An über-cute, Japanese-influenced aesthetic, and one of our Art basel highlights!
CHRISTMAS, DIOR STYLE
Could there be anything more chic than the Dior advent calendar? We think not. See it for yourself here.

We always celebrate the holidays in style! At Sofitel DC the #vangogh inspired 30 minute lunch in collaboration with the Philips Museum is our favorite Sofitel food image of the week!
Do you agree that it’s really impossible not fall in love with this view. Welcome to Sofitel Miami in December!
LIVING LOUIS VUITTON
For Design Miami this year, French compatriot Louis Vuitton will bring the design sensibility of Le Corbusier to life! The compact ‘home’ they have created is known as ‘La Maison au bord de l’eau’ (“the house on the water”), and was designed by his protégée many decades ago, Charlotte Perriand, one of the few female architects of her day and a pivotal force in defining modern design. Meticulously crafted in a workshop outside Milan, La Maison au bord de l’eau was created in keeping with Perriand’s original plans, under the guidance of her daughter, Pernette, then deconstructed and shipped to Miami, where it was rebuilt and will be on display for design aficionados to enjoy—and available for a prospective collector to acquire from December 3 to 8 as a #DesignMiami satellite.

Renowned Parisian photographer Maurice Renoma has returned to New York for his solo exhibition ‘MODOGRAPHE’ (fashionographer). The Bertrand Delacroix Gallery is hosting the exhibit, that features a series of playful, sensual and provocative color and gray-scale photographs that lie at the intersection of the things we love most: fashion, photography, and art!
