This fashion season, the City of Light has a lot to offer — from art exhibitions to shops to spas. Here’s a smattering of the latest.


AROUND THE WORLD: The fourth Paris hotel designed by Christian Lacroix, Hôtel du Continent, is perhaps his most eclectic, with each of its six floors given a decor inspired by — from bottom to top — Europe, Antarctica, Oceania, Asia, Africa and America.

Located a stone’s throw from Place Vendôme, the hotel’s 25 rooms run from 125 euros to 400 euros, or $170 to $540 at current exchange, depending on the size. Each bears Lacroix’s inimitable mix of bold colors and prints for wall coverings, drapery and furnishings.

The acclaimed couturier, now devoted to theater costumes, exhibitions and interior design projects, said he’s also working on a fifth Paris hotel, on trendy Rue de Charonne, and in April will unveil a revamped Hôtel Jules César in his hometown of Arles.
