Apartment Hotel by Azzedine Alaïa

The much admired Tunisian Azzedine Alaïa, has given the opportunity to anyone from the outside to get a feel of his lifestyle and appreciation of the world of design from the inside. Mr. Alaïa has converted a 300 sqm loft hosted in a traditional 17th century building in the very private Rue de Moussy of Marais district in Paris, into three exclusive apartments/suites. It really does not get more boutique then this. The idea behind these three 100sqm apartments is for a lover of fashion & design visitor to get a feel of the true Parisian life. It is a hotel concept which incorporates the necessary facilities of daily life. Each interior has a private entrance and once inside, a complete fitted kitchen meets all the needs of the guests. The fashion designer’s aim was to achieve a true feeling of a home away from home. It is important to have the luxury of a hotel but at the same time to open the door and feel that you are somewhere familiar and close to you.
