Expressing the French art de vivre – the art of living – luxury hotel Sofitel Washington DC Lafayette Square is presenting a sophisticated fashion package, inspired by an icon. Created in collaboration with legendary model Beverly Johnson, the first African American woman to appear on the cover of American Vogue, Beverly Johnson’s Art de Vivre package encourages guests to explore their own art de vivre through fashion and creative expression.
Guests who book the package will indulge in Sofitel Washington DC Lafayette Square’s magnificent junior suites or prestige suites in the heart of the Nation’s capital, just blocks from the White House and walking distance to many monuments and museums. Guests will receive a copy of “The Face That Changed It All: A Memoir” by Beverly Johnson, signed personally by The New York Times bestselling author. Lastly, guests will receive exclusive access to a personalized curated list of Beverly Johnson’s favorite fashion stops in and around Washington DC. Surrounded by French luxury, guests will unwind in their spacious suite with a bottle of champagne, elegant accents and timeless décor. Daily breakfast for two at the hotel’s French restaurant, Opaline Bar & Brasserie, offers fresh cuisine inspired by local ingredients.
“Sofitel’s ‘art de vivre’ is all about embracing life. Embrace life by being bold; by trying new things; by expressing creativity,” said Beverly Johnson. “In partnering with Sofitel Washington DC, I hope guests will feel inspired to celebrate themselves and the joy that comes with experiencing life’s pleasures.”
“We are always looking to inspire our guests with new opportunities that will enrich their stay experience,” said Karla Erales, General Manager of Sofitel Washington DC Lafayette Square. “Partnering with amazing artists and icons is just one way that Sofitel Washington DC can elevate a guest’s visit and provide an unforgettable experience that can’t be replicated.”
As part of the Art de Vivre dinner series in North America, Sofitel Washington DC Lafayette Square welcomed Beverly Johnson as the guest of honor for the property’s inaugural dinner on November 3.
