There are a few places in Paris that fashion lovers will likely make a pilgrimage to, and Avenue Montaigne probably sits on top of that list. After all, this tree-lined street just off busy Champs-Élysées is home to well-loved fashion houses like Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Celine, and more. Stroll down this quiet boulevard and you’ll be hard-pressed to miss the iconic Hôtel Plaza Athénée, situated right next to Harry Winston and Valentino.
With its iconic red awning and geranium-adorned facade, this storied hotel makes a lasting first impression. Inside, the opulence continues, with polished marble floors and glinting chandeliers warmly welcoming you. It’s easy to see why this is a favourite with royals (Grace Kelly), celebrities (Elizabeth Taylor) and the fashion crowd alike.
