Maison Martin Margiela happily announce a new collaborative project, which finds the fashion house reworking the interiors of the La Maison Champs-Elysees.

La Maison Champs-Elysées consists of two buildings, one dating from the Second Empire under Napoleon III, the other built more recently. Maison Martin Margiela, appointed after winning the competition to design the historical part of the building, has re-thought this space to create hotel suites, a restaurant, a smoking room, a bar and a reception area. In designing this project Maison Martin Margiela aimed for continuity in relation to its own artistic history by offering a place where contrasts harmonize that are further tinged with surrealism.

The hotel, located at the junction of Avenue Montaigne, the Grand Palais and Place de la Concorde, will open in July of 2011.
