Le Bristol Paris has been a favorite among the fashion set since the 1960’s, but in recent years, the hotel has sought to renew its relationship with style by inviting guests to Fashion Saturdays, a weekly presentation of the latest designs by top European couturiers. Taking place in the Salon Castellane over afternoon tea, it is an intimate alternative to the frenzied runway shows of Paris Fashion Week—with a guaranteed front row seat.
As models dressed in just off-the-runway looks by the likes of Chloé, Céline, and Salvatore Ferragamo circulate between tables, guests linger over a traditional British tea service, complete with champagne, cakes, and finger sandwiches. For each occasion, pastry chef Laurent Jeannin creates a unique dessert inspired by the designer’s style.
Le Bristol’s Fashion Saturdays event provides an intimate alternative to the frenzied runway shows of Paris Fashion Week.
Illustrious artists and designers like Marcel Rochas, Cristóbal Balenciaga, Coco Chanel, Elsa Schiaparelli, Pablo Picasso, Piet Mondrian, and Salvador Dali have all gathered at Le Bristol Paris since it opened in 1925.
And today, the hotel remains a chic retreat on the tony Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré, surrounded by art dealers and galleries, world class boutiques, and design ateliers.
Though you needn’t travel far to experience the best of the local art scene: for the past few years, Le Bristol Paris has paid homage to its own creative heritage by collaborating with local contemporary and fine art galleries to curate a series of rotating exhibitions in the hotel's garden and bar.
