One of three executive suites in Paris, designed by legendary fashion-turned-interior designer Azzedine Alaïa.
From an article by Laura Bradley:
The mark of a good designer, or in fact any creative, is a strong, recognisable signature. Azzedine Alaïa has plenty: a monochrome palette, second-skin dresses, accentuated waists, laser-cut accessories. So it seems only right that the Tunisian designer who opened his first Parisian atelier in the 1970s, now turns his hand to interior design. As well as designing and producing four collections per year, and personal orders, Alaïa has overseen the conversion of a 300 sqm loft in a traditional 17th century building located in the Rue de Moussy of Marais district of Paris, into three exclusive suites. Better still, the building is located next to his boutique, atelier, showroom, warehouse and private dwelling – guests who stay will enjoy breakfast from Alaïa's private kitchen.
The apartments feature a wealth of 20th Century modernism, including works by Jean Prouve, Charlotte Perriand, Serge Mouille, Pierre Paulin, Harry Bertoia, Osvaldo Borsani, Kwok Hoi Chan, Arne Jacobsen, Sori Yanagi, Elenora Peduzzi-Riva and Gianfranco Frattini.
