GETAWAY – IN NOVEMBER
PALM SPRINGS, CALIFORNIA
The Parker, The Colony Palms, and L’Horizon are generally considered the area’s top hotels, but design enthusiasts will relish the chance to stay in one of the area’s signature Mid-Century Modern homes (AirBnB has hundreds available.) One thing not to miss: dinner and dancing at Melvyn’s, the beloved Old Hollywood haunt that counts Frank Sinatra, Elvis, and Marilyn Monroe as some of its famous regulars.
FASHION – LOUIS VUITTON
Louis Vuitton’s New Paris Store Was Designed by the Architect of Versaille
But inside it’s like a contemporary art museum. Located at 2 Place Vendôme, the grand 18th-century building was where the brand’s story began over 160 years ago. Today, the address has come back to life with the help of architect Peter Marino.
