What could be better than a suite in a luxury hotel? For fashionistas, there’s only one answer: a suite that’s designed with the look of your favorite fashion house! On the 12th floor of the New York St. Regis Hotel, an extra special suite inspired by Dior awaits fans of the French fashion label – in ‘Whispering Grey’, of course.



New York is a city full of glamour and a mecca for luxury shopping: many high-end shops have their flagship stores in and around Fifth Avenue in Manhattan. And all those who find themselves laden down with bags bearing designer names at the end of the day can breathe a sigh of relief when they reach the Central Park St. Regis Hotel façade: constructed in 1904, this art nouveau building was the work of architect John Jacob Astor, and is considered a symbol of timeless New York luxury. Since its reopening in 1991, the St. Regis takes its offering a step beyond the opulence of its 182 rooms and 74 suites, anticipating the needs of its discerning customers in advance. Following the positive feedback over suites dedicated to luxury jeweler Tiffany’s and Bentley Motors, the hotel has now created a suite in the style of the Parisian Dior atelier from Avenue Montaigne.


Timeless Dior grey


An elegant world decorated in “Whispering Grey” awaits guests of the Dior suite on the 12th story of the St. Regis hotel. Whether in the foyer, the living room, dining room, bedroom, or bathroom – the cool grey tone made famous by the French luxury brand is featured throughout. Feather-light colored accents give the Dior suite the breathtaking elegance expected from this legendary fashion designer. For a nightly price of 8,500 USD, the guest is treated to a true Haute-Couture experience.


From Avenue Montaigne to Fifth Avenue


The Dior suite focal point is the generously-sized living space that serves as an homage to the French fashion house’s Avenue Montaigne headquarters: high ceilings, richly carved stucco accents, and opulent crystal lighting complete the picture. Large windows with extravagant drapes frame the fascinating view over Mahattan and Central Park. Classic Louis XVI-style furniture pieces and gold leaf accents combine with white woodwork, giving the space the aura of an elegant French salon. A prominent space is given to a large painting achieved by painter Bill Donovan (Dior Beauty’s 2009 Artist in Residence) especially for the Dior Suite. The work features four famous Dior silhouettes and is a tribute to the unmistakable influence, and rich history of the French label.



Which is the connection that New York St. Regis general manager Paul Nash wished to illustrate: both entities are veritable institutions in their respective areas that serve as literal and cultural landmarks.
