A luxury hotel from another era
It’s one of the most prestigious addresses in Monaco. A sumptuous retreat away from the hustle and bustle in the heart of the Principality... Located in the Carré d’Or overlooking the Mediterranean, Hotel Metropole Monte-Carlo has a unique atmosphere steeped in history and soul. From the 126 rooms and suites to the restaurants and pool, everything at Hotel Metropole is dedicated to the pleasures in life.
This is why Givenchy came to unveil a spa specifically designed for this exceptional hotel.
Clean lines and noble materials... Designed by architect Didier Gomez, Spa Metropole by Givenchy reflects the House’s sophistication and modernity down to every last detail. The entrance sets the tone with its marble finish and proportions accentuated by sleek, bold black lines. Contemporary materials can be found alongside a digital plant wall throughout the interior, for absolute serenity. The corridor leading to the treatment rooms offers an immersive experience in which an unexpected encounter with nature is heightened by a subtle play of light, creating a vibrant and intimate atmosphere.
All ten treatment rooms are decorated in nuanced shades of white, with embossed walls that evoke the lace of Haute Couture gowns. These include a double suite and a single suite equipped with a bath and private hammam. For a touch of luxury, guests may choose a fragrance to accompany them throughout their experience. This is sprayed on a tissue in the pocket of their bathrobe or on the massage table. All treatments and massages end with a refreshing ritual using cryotherapy technology, for a gentle way to prolong this moment of serenity.
“The secret to elegance is being yourself.” These words of wisdom from Hubert de Givenchy say everything, or almost everything, you need to know about the philosophy behind the Givenchy spas. Because beauty by Givenchy is much more than a simple treatment; it’s an experience – the key to elegance radiating from within. In an alchemy of advanced formulas, sumptuous textures and, of course, skilfully mastered rituals, the House’s products used in Givenchy spas unleash their full potential in the hands of experts trained to employ precisely choreographed protocols. All face and body care treatments are exclusively designed, personalised rituals that combine effectiveness and sensory delight. The promise of an absolutely unforgettable moment all to yourself.
Hôtel Métropole Monte-Carlo, 4 Avenue de la Madone, 98000 Monaco
Sensual and feminine by design, beautiful lingerie adapts to the seasons and in keeping with your mood, whether it be romantic, sophisticated, or casual. The signature of elegant fashion, these bodysuits are created in the most refined fabrics, from satin and tulle to lace by Leavers and Jacquard.
Among all the possible combinations, one of the most outstanding is the couture touch of the Bisoux bodysuit—with its patterned lace and satin trimming, plus the look of denim. Can be worn by day or by night.
For a romantic rendezvous or a cocktail party, go for the fabulous look of Palazzo pants paired with the Plume bodysuit, whose Leavers lace is inspired by bird feathers. Add a rock accent with the Perfecto jacket in leather.
The Ultrachic bodysuit is sumptuous in silk crepe adorned with bands of lace on the length of its sleeves, at the wrists, neck, and around the thighs. It is worn bloused at the waist with the low-cut back closed by a single button, or left open for a dressier evening allure.
Key points: These chic undergarments, meticulously manufactured by Eres, have a multi-layered patterned look that creates a graphic effect on the skin.
Plus: Treat yourself on a daily basis by adding pretty lingerie to your urban outfits, such as a lacy bustier under a kimono jacket, a cardigan, or a silk shirt. Another special detail: tone on tone for a feel of very subtle transparency.

The perfect companion for a cultivated woman with eclectic taste
For her brand new line of bags, the Longchamp Madeleine, Sophie Delafontaine wanted to evoke La Madeleine, the emblematic neighborhood in the 9th arrondissement of Paris with its theatres and chic brasseries, and where the first Longchamp boutique opened on Rue Saint-Honoré close to 30 years ago.
The Longchamp Madeleine is a bag that is contemporary as well as deliciously retro, and very feminine, with a sleek, practical shape. It is made with Longchamp’s traditional excellence in wonderful Taurillon leather that is supple and sensual.
This handbag abounds with elegant details: clean-cut edges in saddle-style leather, and a large flap on which the popular Roseau clasp serves as a signature. We also like this bag for its well thought-out interior organization, and a choice of timeless colors, from a chic black to a charming khaki, a voluptuous violet, or a hot red tomato.
In this case, as always, Longchamp likes to tell us wonderful stories… once upon a time there was the Longchamp Madeleine, with a rare elegance and above all the perfect partner for the totally modern woman.
Key points: Taurillon leather with a contemporary allure that offers suppleness and sensuality in a clean, well-designed shape.
Plus: It’s large flap opens to reveal an ideal organization for all the object of your daily existence.
