I thought I’d end my series of Hong Kong posts with images of the hotel that I stayed at – the W Hotel, Hong Kong. Hong Kong is one of those cities I can revisit over and over again and still manage to have an incredible experience every time.
This time around I stayed at the W Hotel which I was really excited about, having read rave reviews on numerous design magazines. The hotel definitely lived up to it’s hype – boasting room views overlooking Hong Kong harbour, one of the best buffet breakfast’s I’ve ever visited, a well fitted out health centre and a rooftop pool overlooking the city.
As with all other W Hotels, what I particularly loved was the design detail throughout the hotel. Here are a few photos of the hotel (which you should definitely stay at if you’re ever in Honkers!)
When I was in London late last year, I only had one place that needed to be urgently crossed off my ‘places to visit list’ and that was to visit the LN-CC showroom. I had seen so many images of it’s infamous ‘hallway’ and decided that I needed to make the trek there to see it in person.
As LN-CC is an appointment-only store, I had to schedule a visit prior to leaving Sydney. Originally, I had scheduled it for the day of my arrival but quickly realised that jet lag and shopping would make for a terrible combination.
Instead, I ended up visiting on the 3rd day of my trip. Since I was staying in East London, the store actually ended up only being a couple of stations away.
I was absolutely mesmerised by the interior – in an area that looked quite dingy and rough on the outside, the store – by contrast, had the most amazing fitout. Don’t even get me started on the collection of clothes …. seeing Jil Sander, Balenciaga and Ann D all in the one store is so rare in Sydney so I pretty much went crazy on my shopping.
