Zuhair Murad Resort 2019

Zuhair Murad embarked on a nautical theme while retaining his signature poetry and femininity, including a range of striking prints used across the collection.
With a stronger daywear focus incorporating a sprinkling of luxe ath-leisure pieces, he included nods to Captain Cook and sailor Corto Maltese, plus their discoveries of plants, Gauguin-esque colors and insects around the Southern Seas.
The most sartorial elements were navy blue or black-and-white outfits, like the sharp-shouldered jackets with tailored trousers and skirts. Shards of compass imagery decorated certain looks — in the form of beadwork and sequins on long black or white evening dresses. A bodysuit could be dressed down or up, and a jumpsuit had a sporty take.
These contrasted well with the fluid dresses with elegant patterns reminiscent of multicolored butterflies or hibiscus. Some standouts included the sweeping V-neck dress with pink, black and yellow embroidery evocative of pixilated butterfly wings and the shorter black-and-white dragonfly-like jacquard knit dress.
Fabrics such as leathers, metal cotton tweed and crepe de chine made appearances, too, adding an even wider reach to this rich collection.

Raquel Allegra Resort 2019

Raquel Allegra injected a cultural mash-up into her resort 2019 collection, using a silk calico print from India, a chrysanthemum kimono print from Japan, and a knit blanket motif from Latin America as part of the mix of colors and textures in her “cabinet of curiosities.”
The combination of prints recalls Henri Matisse’s paintings, which reflect his love of textiles. Allegra also pulled color combinations as lavender and marigold from his works to create a color story on one end composed of vibrant pastels and saturated midtones, echoing seasonal flowers like peonies and lilacs. On the other end of the spectrum, Allegra used earth tones and a warm spice alluding to the Silk Road, another reference to exploration and an exchange of textiles.
In another designer’s hands, the combination of fabrics, colors and patterns could seem overly busy, but Allegra’s skill in mixing and layering the elements resulted in an appealing collection that speaks to seasonless and transitional dressing for the upscale bohemian woman.
Each look combined humble and dressy fabrics, such as cloudlike tie-dyed cotton long-sleeved T-shirt visible beneath a mesh top, paired with a silk-cotton midiskirt. “Everything plays well together, but it’s not subscribed. It’s how I achieve my own comfort

Dondup Resort 2019

For its resort collection, the design team at Dondup drew on the house’s denim expertise to build a lineup of fresh silhouettes with a safari flavor. Jeans were pushed slightly into ath-leisure territory, in a show of confidence from a label that has established authority in the denim department. The wide reach of colors included acid washes and a bright green khaki, which was used to fashion a pair of loose, cropped jeans with one pleat in the middle of each side.
Jungle patterns appeared on cinched dresses and a dressy jacket and shorts combination — also cinched, but with pockets. For shine, the label offered lightweight track suit bottoms, hugged at the waist and ankles by drawstrings. There was a jacket in the same material hung straight to the thighs, sleeves pushed over the elbows — fitting the unique style offered by the upscale and cosmopolitan Italian label.
Anchored with a flagship store in Milan on Via della Spiga, Dondup expanded its web site last year and is gearing up for development abroad.

Chiara Boni La Petite Robe Resort 2019

Resort allowed Chiara Boni to revert back to her penchant for vibrancy. After a fall runway show focused on Hollywood glamour and a more muted palette, she approached this season with hits of saturated yellow, lime, red, turquoise blue and magenta on her signature stretch jersey fabric. She’s developed a niche base for the textile, namely for its ability to balance a svelte line with comfort.
There were about 35 new dress styles, including a sleek off-the-shoulder black number, a color-blocked version with a keyhole cutout at the waist, and a couple of fringe styles that allowed the designer to show her playful hand. A cropped fitted jumpsuit was a new silhouette buyers have been gravitating toward during market for its ease, streamlined form and ability to transition from day-to-evening. (It’ll be available in every color from the season).
Swimwear has been an unsurprising success for the brand, crafted from the same stretch jersey so that playful one-piece suits with either structured bows at the waist or corsetry details can double as bodysuits for night when paired with trousers. Boni developed two original floral prints as well, splashing them onto swimsuits, silk caftans (a first for the brand), and long formal dresses

David Koma Resort 2019

Like many others, David Koma has been influenced by the Eighties resurgence that’s been making waves on the catwalks and shop floors alike.
But the London-based designer managed to stand out in his interpretation of the hugely popular decade, making it his own by blending subtle Eighties references — a puff sleeve here, a crystal-embellished zip there — with his signature graphic lines and flair for modernism.
The result was a collection filled with desirable pieces that had the glamour and drama of the past and the sense of ease that speaks to today’s consumer.
Inspired by Helmut Newton’s swimwear photographs, Koma re-created his popular minidresses with curved, sporty necklines and ultra-thin shoulder straps. He also added a generous dose of sparkle with oversize crystals, silver sequins and Plexiglass. Heavy embellishment can be dangerous territory, but by keeping a monochromatic color palette and using the crystals or sequins to create graphic lines, Koma maintained a fresh, modern look.
Among the standouts were a white one-shouldered gown featuring a flashy sequinned side panel that aims to highlight the body, a black-and-white tuxedo dress with puffed silk-organza sleeves and black minidresses mixing graphic cutouts and soft draping.
Elsewhere, Koma continued to play with contrasts in a series

Ulla Johnson Resort 2019

Coming off a 20-year anniversary milestone, Ulla Johnson keeps on rolling. She recently traveled to Brazil to check on the intricately hand-woven shoes and bags she used in resort as an artisanal element to finish off feminine looks. São Paulo proved inspirational for its balance of modern architecture, culture and wilderness, leading Johnson to explore a meeting place of structure and ease in her signature bohemian romance.
She turned to the work of Hilma af Klint, an abstract painter in the 20th century, whose art employed a bold use of color, geometry and floral motifs. It inspired the exuberant palette of poppy yellow, red, magenta and lavender, as well as the floral patterns of ruffle-adorned dresses and opulent embroidery. A standout dress, made in India, for instance, featured paneling that took eight hours to embroider, handmade crochet trim and flower tassel, and handfinishing that makes it an emotional buy, and a keepsake that’ll last more than a season. Almost all the prints this season were shown on the reverse for a lived-in, time-honored effect. Customers will appreciate the fringy handknits woven in Peru and other hand-braided, hand-woven bags made in the Philippines and Spain.

Claudia Li Resort 2019

Claudia Li’s playfully innovative collection, full of quirky design elements and colorful floral patterns, was born out of nostalgia. The New York-based designer was missing New Zealand, her mother and, noticeably for resort, the bedroom view of her mother’s garden. She developed a few floral prints that helped temper the yearning, including a garden print, an abstract confetti print that reminded her of falling petals, and a metallic print meant to resemble morning dew.
She splashed these onto innovative silhouettes, a trait of the young designer’s customers have come to expect. The cheekiest design update goes to hip enhancers, found on fit-and-flare dresses, tailored suit jackets, nylon skirts and even pants. Think of them as shoulder pads for your waist — removable by choice, but surprisingly subtle with just the slightest hint of volume. “I have no hips,” Li said at a walk-through. “It gives it more of a maternal shape, a feminine shape.”
She experimented with adjustability by adorning crew-neck T-shirts with long sashes that wrap in front and tie in back, and with short dresses that could be tightened on just one side for a half-cinched, half-flowy effect. For those inclined to classic notions of refinement, nothing was more chic than

Veronica Beard RTW Resort 2019

Casual polish is the endgame at Veronica Beard, where sisters-in-law Veronica Miele Beard and Veronica Swanson Beard update American classics with novelty and, for resort, athletic undertones. They looked to the glamour and sexual femininity of the Eighties and early Nineties, delivering a blend of tailoring this season set against casual sportswear and colorful prints.
Elevated takes on suiting included an off-the-shoulder blazer styled with a multichain belt (which, really, would add considerable edge to any outfit) and a red blazer featuring the designers’ take on the double-breasted silhouette. Leather suiting and twinsets with detachable gold chains leaned heavily toward the Eighties, but were toned down with graphic “Veronica” Ts and track-inspired techno knit pants with great recovery.
There was also novelty. To wit: Bold plaids, scarf prints and engineered florals provided a playful visual element while denim featured crystal buttons. The designers also reworked classics like the trenchcoat into a cropped style with athletic stripes, a reversible version with plaid fabric, and into one of their signature dickeys.
With the anticipated opening of two more brick-and-mortar stores by the end of this year, the designers will need to offer as many dickey options as possible to the new customers they’ll be sure

The second collection by creative director Mayte Allende reemphasized some of the staples she introduced for fall, such as T-shirts and tops with ties at the bust and draped trompe l’oeil bustier details, as well as delicate ruched tulle tops and dresses. This time she developed the bustier T-shirt into a liquid silver gown and presented the tulle looks in blush, inspired by the nudes of artist Linder Sterling. Allende’s design philosophy is making comfortable, easy-to-wear pieces amped up with special details that focus on the female form and blur the line between day and evening. A striped long-sleeve cotton dress had cutouts at the side and back. A sheer nude trench with black tipping was embroidered in sequins and a spaghetti strap halter jumpsuit had cutouts under the bustline.

Oscar de la Renta Resort 2019

Describing a fashion show as very “mother-of-the-bride” is not always a compliment. Yet it was accurate and deliberate in the case of Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim’s resort collection for Oscar de la Renta. If there was ever a time to go in that direction, this was it.
Garcia and Kim were already looking at a Wedgwood book by Rizzoli as a key reference for the lineup in February when “we got Meghan [Markle’s] phone call to help dress her mom for the royal wedding,” Garcia said after Tuesday’s show, referring to the ODLR ensemble Doria Ragland wore to her daughter’s, the Duchess of Sussex, nuptials last weekend. He noted that the request to dress the most watched mother-of-the-bride in recent memory and the bridal registry china inspiration were a happy coincidence, so the designers went with it.
The English pottery brand’s heritage informed many of the collection’s colors and patterns. Everything in the lineup would be appropriate for an event on a wedding weekend itinerary — the rehearsal dinner, reception, bridesmaids’ dresses, morning after brunch. The show opened with a series of ivory and pastel stretch wool dresses that were minimal in shape with hemlines cut like architectural petals. There were

Just Cavalli Resort 2019

Florence served as a major inspiration for the Just Cavalli resort collection, the first designed by creative director Paul Surridge since his arrival at the company last year.
A view of the landscape of the Tuscan city, which is the fashion house’s hometown, as well as the iconic image of the marble statue of David by Michelangelo in Piazza della Signoria, pop up in the young and fun collection.
Rooted in an urban, contemporary mood, the versatile lineup offers a range of easy-to-wear pieces, spanning from multicolored jacquard sweaters, slipdresses layered over lace blouses, as well as a Barbie-like outfit, combining a miniskirt with a denim-inspired jacket, both crafted from baby pink leather.
The brand’s signature wild animal motifs are reworked through a graphic lens and mixed and matched on maxi frocks, while an ironic feel runs trough a lacquered yellow bomber worn with coordinated pants printed in a crocodile pattern.
Staying away from certain rock ’n’ roll and sexy clichés of the brand’s previous collection, Surridge managed to deliver an unfussy and unpretentious lineup of wearable yet eye-catching pieces for the real girls of 2019.

Givenchy Resort 2019

Men’s tailoring has always been the bedrock of Clare Waight Keller’s coed vision for Givenchy. In her debut last fall, she said her focus on sharp shoulders was directly derived from the work of founder Hubert de Givenchy.
For her first resort collection since taking over the creative direction of the label, the designer also delved into a lesser-known part of Givenchy’s heritage: a sportswear line that fed into a selection of looks infused with athletic ease.
“He actually did a sports line at the beginning of the Eighties — Givenchy Sport — and it was kind of interesting, because there, he really used a lot of the graphic designs and these sort of V-shapes,” she explained. “I thought it was interesting to mix that back into the more sophisticated tailoring part.”
Men’s logo track pants, or second-skin tops in technical fabrics, were overt nods to the athleisure trend that has swept through to high-end brands. It translated more subtly in the women’s looks, which included roomy separates in paper-thin glossy leather, done in subtle hues like forest green and Prussian blue.
The Eighties influence was overt with items like cowl-neck tops with batwing sleeves, or a burgundy jersey zip-up jacket with a black

Tomas Maier Resort 2019

No one is immune to influence. That’s why designers have mood boards. Tomas Maier’s brand is anchored in comfortable, everyday sportswear with a fashion attitude. What are the biggest things happening in comfortable, casual sportswear? Puffer jackets, tracksuits, windbreakers, logomania and, of course, the Eighties. Maier had it all in his women’s and men’s resort collection, handling pieces that are widely available elsewhere with his smart, thoughtful hand.
“It’s a little influenced by the early Eighties music scene, early hip-hop,” said Maier during a preview. Track jackets were reversible and pants, cut wide and slouchy, were done in washed flannel and felted wool jersey to give the dressed-down look a polished finish. Oversize cashmere sweaters and fitted knits in sporty graphic compositions were chicly athletic, likewise the down puffers and shearling and nylon jackets. Maier’s signature palm-tree motif was done in an Eighties Los Angeles way, the long, skinny palms printed against pink sunset skies. Adopting his branding to the seasonal theme that way made sense, though the same could not be said for cartoony graphic cassette-tape motifs, which felt too juvenile for Maier’s clientele.
Logos are everywhere, so it was less surprising to see “Maier” stamped boldly on shoes than it

Prada Resort 2019

After a fashion show, a critic typically rushes from the venue back to office, home, hotel, wherever, and writes as carefully considered a review as deadline — usually right now — permits.  
Following Miuccia Prada’s cruise show last night, I ignored that deep-rooted conditioning to actually enjoy, rather than fret through, the post-show fete (Tonne Goodman — a delightful dinner companion), and went home to bed after what I thought was quite a strong show. A night’s sleep and some morning rumination told me I was wrong. Prada’s show wasn’t merely strong. It was brilliant.
Not deep-thoughts, esoteric brilliant, but aggressively commercial, resort-long-selling-season-give-me-a-smart-coat-and-pants brilliant. “It’s like a fantasy and the reality,” Prada said, describing her motif du jour. “Of course, [a show is] always a fantasy. It’s my fantasy on what today for me is real.” 
A longtime holdout from the cruise extravaganza, Prada acknowledged that market realities ultimately forced her hand. “Everybody is doing more, and so you have to adapt, more or less,” she said.
So after years of sprinkling women’s cruise looks into her June men’s show, last year she staged a full resort show in Milan. This time she opted for another of her brand’s “homes,” its Herzog &

Resort Attire: Resort Casual & Resort Evening Dress Code Guide

Resort attire or resort wear is a dress code that is established around the globe. It’s even the basis for an annual collection of couture fashion designers who focus just on this segment because a lot of people want to look stylish even when they relax.

You’ll most likely find it in the country clubs or nice resorts or hotels that want to make sure that guests don’t show up in board shorts for dinner. Sometimes, the dress code resort wear can be ambiguous because different hotels or resorts define it differently. As a rule of thumb, keep in mind, the more posh or upscale an establishment is, the more formal the dress code is likely going to be.

What Exactly Is Resort Wear Or Resort Attire?

It indicates that a certain degree of formality is required even though you’re in a warmer climate. At the same time, it means that a dark suit or tuxedo would be inappropriate because it would be over-the-top.

What Not To Wear

Board shorts on men should only be used at the beach

Board shorts on men should only be used at the beach

  • Athletic attire of any kind is always inappropriate. Your gym shorts, your t-shirts are not appropriate.
  • No track pants, no sweatpants, no joggers and no workout shorts.

  • Avoid wearing t-shirts or tank tops and always make sure your shirts have some kind of a collar such as a polo shirt with short sleeves or long sleeves or a dress shirt.
  • It also means don’t wear shower slides, flip-flops or sandals unless you’re specifically at the beach or by the pool area.

  • You definitely want to avoid any type of tennis shoes or trainers. When it comes to sneakers, always be cautious and rather err on the side of formality. Meaning a nice leather dress shoe in tan, maybe some suede in colors such as green, even dark brown. Definitely stay clear of black because that would be too formal.
  • In some establishment, golf khakis or slacks with polo shirt are acceptable. In others, they aren’t so it pays to specifically ask or figure out what the proper dress code at your venue is.
  • It goes without saying that your clothing shouldn’t have any holes or tears and also stay clear of any type of shorts for evening activities.
  • Skip vests or any other heavy layers.
  • Cufflinks are maybe a little over the top. A simple barrel cuff will do just fine.

Resort Casual Daywear

The first thing that probably comes to mind is the Hawaiian shirt. I’ve been to Hawaii recently and I hardly saw anybody wearing Hawaiian shirts. So they’re out there, they exist. They can be appropriate if you’re in the mood for it, go for it, but it’s definitely not something you have to have and sometimes it can also look a bit cheesy.

White Bucks with Seersucker and green Fort Belvedere shoelaces

So in terms of slacks, you can go with linen pants or cotton pants. Things like seersucker is totally fine and you can also go with shorts as long as they are longer and made of cotton or linen or other interesting materials.

At the same time, skip any kind of swim trunks or board shorts because that would be too informal.

Ribbed Polo Shirt Collar

Ribbed Polo Shirt Collar

A polo shirt is just fine during the day, a t-shirt maybe a little too informal but if you’re at the beach or in the vicinity, that’s okay too. I say jackets are over-the-top and if you’re at a resort during offseason, you may want to have a thin sweater or something that keeps you at the ideal temperature. If you wear a lot of solid polo shirts, it can be interesting to mix it up a bit with patterned shorts. You could go with stripes, maybe dots, or classic patterns such as seersucker, checks or Madras. During the day, definitely stay clear of any form of jacket that would be over the top.

Beautiful summer madras shorts

Beautiful summer madras shorts

In terms of shoes, you can wear driving mocs, maybe boat shoes. If you’re at the beach and you go from your room to the pool, flip-flops are just fine. Otherwise, if you’re at the lobby or the restaurant, flip-flops would not quite be appropriate.

Sperry TopSider Boat Shoes

Sperry TopSider Boat Shoes

Also, wearing ties or bow ties is over-the-top so leave them in your room and save them for the evening.

Resort Evening Wear

khaki pants or off-white pants and spectators

khaki pants or off-white pants and spectators

It means typically long sleeves, long pants, no shorts. It also requires closed toed shoes which can be derbies or oxfords in brown tones or tans. You can also be a little more playful, maybe you want to go with a pair of spectators, or maybe some white shoes; something that is more summery and more associated with tropics. Stay clear of black shoes even in the evening because it’s not quite suited to the tropics.

Sven Raphael Schneider wearing fresco, madras tie, chinos and cognac shoes

Sven Raphael Schneider wearing fresco, madras tie, chinos and cognac shoes

A jacket is not mandatory but definitely a good idea. Personally, I always like it because in the evening, it can get a little cooler and it’s also much more elegant and stylish. A navy blazer is very versatile and you can wear it. I think a cotton jacket with a slight check, maybe a fresco jacket in a lighter color is preferable. If you want to, you can wear a seersucker suit but in general, I’d stay clear of suits and rather go with combinations.

I suggest you match your belt with your shoes and if you want to, you can go with bolder colors in certain elements of your outfit because the resort is fun, it’s casual and it’s not business.

When it comes to accessories, you can be a little more playful as well. You can have madras patterns, maybe grenadine, maybe knit, something with a little more texture. Maybe you go with a bow tie just something that is unusual and not necessarily something you would wear with a three-piece business suit.

Of course, if you prefer, you don’t have to wear neckwear at all but if you wear a jacket, I suggest you go at least with a pocket square because it just elevates the look and makes you more stylish.

If you don’t want to wear over the calf socks, consider no-show socks. They prevent your feet from sweating in your shoes and it’ll also help to prevent any kind of blisters.

For shirts, you can opt for dress shirts with an open weave or alternatively if you like it more casual, you can go with long sleeved polo shirts just make sure they have a nice color and not those typical flimsy ones.

Here’s What a Luxury Ski Resort Owned by North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un Looks Like

North Korea’s abrupt cancellation of a joint cultural event this week leaves only one venue in the country that will host events for next month’s Winter Olympics: Kim Jong Un’s luxury ski resort.

South Korean skiers will begin training Wednesday at North Korea’s Masikryong resort as part of an agreement to spur reconciliation ahead of the Games starting Feb. 9 in South Korea. North Korea on Monday scrapped a joint cultural performance at Mount Kumgang, a resort built while Kim’s father was in power, in a move that revealed underlying tensions between the nations.

“Seeing South Koreans practice at a place he built is a propaganda coup for Kim,” said Lee Su-seok, a North Korea analyst at South Korea’s Institute for National Security Strategy. “Masikryong represents his era, and he is relying on the ski resort rather than the 20-year-old mountain resort to emerge from his father’s shadow.”

North Korea is seeking to capitalize on South Korea’s desire for a peaceful Winter Games as international sanctions over its nuclear arms program further squeeze its finances. Trade with China — North Korea’s main financial backer — shrank by more than half last month, the latest evidence of what Kim earlier this month called the “unprecedented impediments” his country has faced.

Swiss Education

While South Korea currently bans tourists from traveling north, the thaw over the Olympics brings the countries closer to dialogue on restoring lucrative cross-border tours that once brought Kim’s regime millions of dollars a year. The free advertising for his ski resort may also attract more visitors from China, which sends more tourists to North Korea than any other country.

Until a travel ban last year, the number of U.S. visitors was believed to hover at about 1,000 a year. Those with special permission to travel are now advised to draft a will and discuss funeral arrangements.

Kim, a skiing fan who was educated in Switzerland, ordered soldiers to build the Masikryong resort shortly after he took power in 2011. North Korea says it built the resort in just one year, boasting that it would have taken other nations a decade.

North Korea used a loophole on luxury goods in the United Nations Security Council resolution to bring in European-made snowmobiles and other equipment to Masikryong. While the European Union considers ski equipment to be luxury goods, China told a UN panel of experts that skiing was a “popular sport for people.”

ED JONES—AFP/Getty ImagesThis photo taken on February 19, 2017 shows a room at the Masikryong ski resort

Ski Sanctions

Fresh UN sanctions passed last year will make it harder for Kim to maintain the resort, according to Christopher Green, senior adviser on the Korean peninsula at the International Crisis Group in Amsterdam. While China might justify snow plows as necessary for public safety, restrictions on industrial machinery would block sales of a ski lift, Green said.

Masikryong, which means a mountain pass where horses rest, has 10 ski runs, with the longest one stretching as far as 5,100 meters (16,700 feet). A giant electronic screen displays propaganda videos at the bottom of the hills, according to 2015 footage by Singaporean video journalist Aram Pan.

The nearby 11-story hotel, painted in orange, has 120 rooms, an indoor swimming pool, a karaoke bar, a gym and a children’s room with books like “Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves,” the footage showed. A shop sells North Korean handbags, and foreigners can use an internet room. TVs in the guest rooms show channels from the U.K., China, Japan, Germany and Russia, Pan said, adding that locals can’t watch them.

Dennis Rodman

The flight to the nearby Kalma Airport from Beijing takes less than two hours. Visitors have so far included Chinese diplomats, Dennis Rodman, a former NBA star who has befriended Kim over several trips to North Korea, and Japanese pro-wrestler-turned-lawmaker Antonio Inoki.

The resort has also seen controversy. Human-rights activists were outraged last year when a team of NBC journalists showed women and children using axes and sticks to clear snow from the bus route into the resort.

Jin Chun-kyu, a South Korean who visited Masikryong in November under a U.S. Green Card, said the resort takes dollars, yuan, yen and euro, as well as North Korean won. He said it costs about $ 100 a day to ski at the resort, which restricts the daily number of visitors to 2,000.

“It’s quite spacious,” said Jin, who visited before the season opened. “You don’t have to wait long to ride a lift.”

The resort has “no problem” as a venue for joint training and practice games, South Korea’s Unification Ministry said by email on Jan. 26 after its inspection team visited the resort. Its slopes and snow are in “fine” condition, while Kalma is well managed, it said.

“Pyeongchang’s Olympic appeal is rubbing off on Masikryong,” said Lee Choong-ki, a professor of tourism at Seoul’s Kyung Hee University. “North Korea is getting more global publicity than it could ever have by spending tons of its own money.”

This is why Megeve is the chicest resort in the French Alps

Megeve is a snow junkie’s paradise, discovers Tracy Ramsden

Skiing in Megeve

Two days before my husband and I head off on a ski holiday in the south-eastern French resort of Megève, there is no snow in the Alps. Nothing. Aside from an unseasonably early snowfall in November, not a flake has fallen since. It’s now mid-season. Of course, we tell ourselves with faux optimism that we could always hire mountain bikes, or pull on our hiking boots – both popular pursuits in Megève – but the snowboards are already packed and we’re determined to use them.

And then it happens. After endless swiping of the snow report app on my phone, the updates roll in: 20cm, 30cm, 50cm have fallen overnight. By the time we land in Geneva for a blink-and-it’s-over transfer (an unprecedented one-hour drive, making Megève the perfect spot for a fly-by ski weekend), the valleys are a whitewash of fresh powder. The weather gods have delivered.

A traditional French village in the heart of the Mont Blanc massif, the resort of Megeve was purpose-built in the 20s to rival Switzerland’s swanky St Moritz. As we wander the main square, it has retained much of its old-school glamour, despite being overtaken in popularity by hotspots such as Val Thorens and Courchevel. Sure, there’s a place for budget chalets and piste-side burgers (usually on our week-long ski holidays with 20 friends), but right now three days of boutique hotels and Michelin-starred food seems a good way to get our ski fix. ‘Investment weekending’, if you will. There are chocolate shops, horse-drawn carriages and, oh look, Hermès!

Where to stay in Megeve

It’s too late to hit the slopes when we arrive, so we hunker down at our first hotel of the trip, and one of the finest in Megeve, Les Fermes de Marie (rooms start from £268 per night). Built on disused farmland 30 years ago by local hotelier dynasty, the Sibuets, and named after their daughter Marie – who now runs the hotel – it’s a feat of wooden sculptural engineering. The dining area sits in the belly of a vast barn construction and there’s a huge crackling fire, above which sits a majestic, mounted taxidermy stag. Our suite feels like an enchanted tree house, with huge windows overlooking the snow-covered valley and a bed tucked away upstairs on a low-ceilinged mezzanine level – great if you’re 4ft 11in (me), not so much if you’re 6ft 1in (him). It’s the little touches that impress: organic cleanser left beside the sink before bedtime; the gluten-free pastry table at breakfast; and boot-warmers at the hotel ski shop, where our newly waxed snowboards and toasty boots welcome us in the morning.

Skiing in Megeve

The main lift in Megeve, Le Chamois, is a ten-minute stroll away and connects with the Rocharbois lift for the higher slopes. It is peak season, but there are no queues or bustle at the lift station. Across the two main ski areas – the Evasion Mont-Blanc (passes from €46.50 per day) and the Portes du Mont-Blanc (passes from €36 per day) – there are over 400km of mixed-ability slopes overlooking the awesome panorama. As a general rule, ski the Le Jaillet side in the morning for quiet, tree-lined runs on freshly bashed pistes, and 360° views of Mont Blanc and Aravis. Then, in the afternoon, follow the sunshine over to Le Mont d’Arbois, which is better for intermediate skiers.

We stop for a chocolat chaud at slope-side bistro Les Mandarines – all designer houndstooth armchairs and cow-hide rugs – and sit on the terrace with our faces in the midday sun and faux-fur rugs over our legs before taking the last run back to Megève village.

As first-day fatigue sets in back at Les Fermes de Marie, we change into fluffy white robes, and head to the in-house Pure Altitude spa. There’s a small adults’ pool and larger family pool, but the real hidden gem is out on the terrace. Nestled in the snow like a giant nursery rhyme wooden pail is the outdoor hot tub. Sinking into the warm bubbles, we unwind looking across the mountains we explored earlier today.

When in France, one should eat well and plentifully. For an unfussy supper, we go for a traditional raclette fondue with thin strips of beef (around €40 for two) and a bottle of vin rouge at L’Alpage. The tiny bistro is simple but stylish, with Scandi-style wood panelling and a cosy open fire. A number of bars are tucked down the winding roads off the main square in Megeve, but we’ve been told by a local to check out a venue behind a small wooden door in a nondescript building hidden down a side street. Les 5 Rues is Megève’s jazz speakeasy and, as we sit on beer barrel stools, locals pour in, shaking off their down jackets to dance to old-school covers from the house band. We order cocktails, dance with new friends and finally leave at 2am.

Next morning, there’s nothing like an early run to clear the head, so we take the gondola to Mont d’Arbois to catch the untouched pistes. It’s exhilarating, so we hop on lift after lift towards the higher runs, spoilt by all that Megève has to offer. A good mixture of wide, sloping blues and more challenging reds – with plenty of green runs for beginners. By 2pm, there’s only one place to head for après-ski – La Folie Douce in the Saint-Gervais/Megève valley. It lives up to its ‘Ibiza on ice’ reputation. Staff are hip and beautiful, and from 2pm-4pm the terrace turns into a dance floor, as funky house pumps from the huge speakers and a violinist in full-length faux fur plays to the beat. We drink beer in the sunshine, before catching the last lift back to Les Fermes de Marie.

Where to shop in Megeve

In town amongst the ski-wear shops, there’s a good selection of independent boutiques, such as Blu&Berry, which stocks Isabel Marant, Carven and Céline. And for fashion-fact fans, the original ski pant originated here in Megève. Back in 1930, world skiing champion Emile Allais commissioned a pair of trousers to be designed that wouldn’t slow him down when skiing downhill, and so the ‘fuseau’ (spindle) was born – a pair of trousers tapered at the ankle and held in place by under-foot elastic.

Our second hotel of the trip is Lodge Park (rooms start from £260), the younger, hipper cousin of Fermes de Marie. The soundtrack is cool and the bar is decked out like an edgy, 19th-century hunting lodge – gazelle skulls on the walls, velvet chairs with antler legs – and we sit on battered leather sofas sipping bellinis as though we do this every Monday night. The hotel room, one of 49, is accented with dark reds, heritage tartan walls and a mahogany bathroom with Hollywood lights – it’s all very this season.

Interiors goals: the hotel bar at Lodge Park

Having found our ski legs, the last day of the trip is spent boarding faster and longer than we ordinarily would, drinking up that fresh, alpine air. For our final night, we go for something special and book dinner at Les Enfants Terribles, the in-house seafood restaurant at five-star Hôtel Mont-Blanc. The chic, low-lit dining room looks like a 50s smoking lounge and original Jean Cocteau artworks adorn the walls. The ice trays outside the main entrance are lined with fresh mussels, lobster, snails and clams, hinting at the banquet to come. I opt for the seafood platter – all of the above, plus oysters – and my husband has the seared beef. We share a bottle of one of the best white wines we’ve ever tasted, a ten-year-old Chablis, and toast our imminent return to Megève.

Roland Mouret Resort 2018

Roland Mouret loosened up for resort, presenting a series of fluid silhouettes in a monochromatic palette of red, black and white. There were flowing midi dresses, airy blouses and loosely draped jumpsuits.
Mouret also experimented with tailoring while staying true to his signature femininity; cropped trousers, pencil skirts and jackets were done in monochromatic tweed fabrics, featuring details such as lace trims and raffia fringing.
The eveningwear offer stood out for its bold floral patterns and delicate fil coupé fabrics, which highlights the designer’s efforts to introduce his take on demi-couture, offering decorative yet wearable pieces “for a new generation of customers.”

Inside the Stunning Resort Kim Kardashian West Chose for Her Birthday Trip

Where do you go for a laid-back birthday trip? Well, if you’re Kim Kardashian and you’re turning 37, you go to Amangiri Resort, a remote spot in Canyon Point, Utah. (You may remember that stylish British It girl Lucy Williams Instagrammed from the same resort just last week.)

Kardashian posted several photos on Instagram Stories, captioning one of them: “Most relaxing bday trip! #Amangiri.” One look at the property, and it’s easy to see why Kardashian chose it: The tranquil desert landscape looks like the perfect place to unwind (and show off your new swimsuit).

“Amangiri’s geometric planes are hued with ochre, yellow and pink to blend with the cliff curve it sits within,” the resort’s website reads. “Each Suite features a large living area that opens onto a terrace offering Utah desert views that change color by the hour.” Ready to feel inspired? We rounded up some of our favorite images of the resort below.
