Colette and the Hudson’s Bay Co. are giving us more reasons to love winter. The young Colette, an uber-chic department store on Rue Saint-Honoré in Paris loves Hudson’s Bay, the iconic Canadian department store steeped in 340 years of history. Parisians can now purchase select items from the Bay’s trademark multi-stripe wares including the Caribou point wool blanket, cashmere scarf, Geoff McFedtridge-designed mug, Swiss army knife, and the adorable snowman dress-up kit . The cool factor continues to rise for The Bay as Colette is known to stock only the coolest of cool. Here are the items hipsters across the Seine are lusting after.
The Plaza Hotel is a New York landmark and one of my favorite places to stay in the city. If I was six years old, I would want to check into their recently opened Eloise Suite, based upon the mischievous character in Kay Thompson‘s book who lives at the Plaza. It’s designed by Betsey Johnson in her typical fun and whimsical style that would make any little girl giddy with delight. The two bedroom Suite provides ample room for children and their parents at a rate of $2350 per night. The fun extends to other areas of the hotel dedicated entirely to the world of Eloise where modern day mini-divas can relax in the Tea Room, get primped in the Beauty Salon and attend Charm School. I can’t imagine them ever wanting to leave.
