An icon of French cinema, Huppert personifies La Rive Gauche woman of today: educated, cultivated and liberated. Never shy of taking on new challenges, the award winning actress naturally agreed to serve as inspiration for renowned French architect and designer, Jean-Michel Wilmotte, in the design of a signature suite at the Hôtel Lutetia.
Situated on the sixth floor of the hotel, La Suite Parisienne looks out over the rooftops of Paris, with views of the Grand Palais and Les Invalides. Designed to reflect a typical Parisian apartment, Isabelle instinctively chose a classic color combination of white, black, and beige, with just a hint of blue. Modern and masculine lines run crisply through this one-bedroom suite, with a dressing to make Carrie Bradshaw weep. An on trend selection of fine furnishings from the father of modernity, Walter Knoll, complete this classic, yet contemporary creation.
Glamorous but not girly, Isabelle conceived the suite with her own home in mind. Translation, an elegant urban retreat discretely revealing her personality through the delicate disposition of a few personal effects. The centrepiece is none other than the magnificent Yves Saint Laurent evening dress that she wore to the 44th Edition of the Caesar Awards. But, if you look a little closer and you will find a selection of souvenirs in the form of magazines, books, photographs, plants and even perfume.
While the decor is delightful, the view from the private terrace overlooking the rooftops of Paris is simply divine. Perfect for a morning coffee, an intimate lunch, or even an evening cocktail, the terrace is the perfect place to admire all left-bank appeal of life in Saint-Germain-dès-Près.
