Inspired by the holiday season and by my visit to Moscow a couple of years ago, I visited the Shangri-la Hotel in Paris and had the opportunity to create a story around their Suite Impériale. I remembered that the first time I visited Russia a dear friend gifted me with a beautiful copy of Anna Karenina by Leo Tolstoi, and had the opportunity to see La fille du Pharaon at the luxurious and extravagant Bolshoi theatre in Moscow. This time at the Shangri-la I relived those memories and a lot of inspiration came back with their beautiful decorations and the cold weather in Paris. I hope you enjoy this story and that the festive mood over these days is also bringing you valuable and warm souvenirs.
