Fashion Meets Travel

Have you ever walked into a hotel room and gushed with admiration at the visual effect of the chosen decor? The plush velvets of the sofa danced in perfect harmony with exquisite wallpaper and elegant accessories. You immediately felt relaxed, sipping on a glass of champaign, taking in your luxurious surroundings. I have great respect for interior designers and their infinite creative vitality. I also love fashion. When the two meet as is the case in fashion-hotel collaborations, I am on cloud nine! I present to you the ultimate feast for the eyes, an eye candy of international travel:
