Claridge's & Dior Celebrate Return of Glamorous Dressing Table in London
As befits a hotel offering the ultimate in legendary service and timeless deco charm, Claridge's has just unveiled the new 'Dior Dressing Table at Claridge's' for guests staying in the hotel's Linley and Claridge's Suites each of which have exquisite vintage deco dressing tables.

The glamorous 'Dior Dressing Table at Claridge's' offers guests a carefully curated range of timeless accessories, including an elegant cream silk Claridge's dressing gown personalized with guests initials, high heeled marabou mule slippers and a rose pink cashmere eye mask. On the dressing table itself, Christian Dior has selected a range of classic Dior fragrances including Miss Dior, Diorella, Diorissimo and Dioressence – Les Classiques created by Dior from 1947 when Christian Dior himself said perfume was an outfit's "finishing touch."

The fragrances selected by this legendary fragrance house evoke the heady days of decadent glamour. As an ideal accompaniment for an evening out, Dior has also created a beauty kit of the essentials – the perfect compacts, powders and Dior ruby red lipstick and nail varnish.

In the Hollywood movie images of the 1930's and 40's the boudoir is depicted as the epitome of a romantic retreat, and one where the dressing table plays a starring role – an appropriate setting for the leading ladies in diaphanous dressing gowns and high heeled slippers. Where better to recreate this nostalgic interlude than Claridge's, London's most glamorous hotel. The new Dior Dressing Table service will create a sanctuary where the art of getting dressed and ready to go out is as important as the night itself.

Commenting on the new initiative Claridge's General Manager Philippe Leboeuf said "We have identified from our guests a desire to experience some nostalgic escapism and sense a return to bygone glamour. Both Claridge's and Dior are synonymous with the combination of impeccable heritage, inherent glamour and contemporary thinking."

Guests staying in the eponymously entitled collection of Claridge's Suites designed by British furniture and interior design company Linley, can also book the Claridge's Heaven package including fresh seasonal flowers, a chilled bottle of Champagne on arrival, full English breakfast for two, suite amenities including seasonal fruit and hand-made chocolates and a specially selected gift from the suites royal designer Linley.

Further adding to the experience, a Dressing Table Cocktail menu from Claridge's Fumoir Bar will be available featuring cocktails from the 1930's including swizzles, daisies, sours, juleps and pick me ups all from the original recipes and served in Lalique glasses. Little touches that will enhance the ambience will be a selection of classic works from Evelyn Waugh and Nancy Mitford, novelists of this magical deco era, and a music collection with notable songs from Josephine Baker and Fred Astaire to complete the experience.

The 'Dior Dressing Table at Claridge's' will be available in Linley / Claridge's suites at an additional price of £300 to the quoted room rate. (The price includes all Four Dior fragrances, beauty gifts – lipstick / nail varnish / powder, personalised silk dressing gown, an Evelyn Waugh book, CD and cocktails from the Fumoir).
