Fashion designers putting their sartorial stamp on properties is hardly big news anymore, with cookie-cutter Club Cavallis dominating Dubai and Missoni bringing its multi-coloured funk to the outer Hebrides. However, should you be looking to add a little style to your stay, head to Christian Lacroix’s joyous property, hidden behind the sobering façade of Paris’ oldest bakery. The 17 rooms have been riotously gone over with the French couturier’s bejewelled fine tooth comb, embodying everything from baroque and sci-fi to playful pop and orientalist Zen with oversized beds and dressing to spare. Extravagant, lush and definitely not for minimalists.
