Fashion Hotels

by Mark Ellwood


All lace and frills and heart-shaped pillows, many honeymoon suites are crying out for the touch of an elegant designer. The Halekulani, one of Waikiki's best hotels, hit upon one of those why-didn't-I-think-of-that ideas: Hire Vera Wang, the designer synonymous with fabulous wedding gowns, to decorate theirs. The detail-obsessed onetime Vogue editor personally oversaw every element of the one-bedroom, 2,100-square-foot suite, dressing it in wedding-ready chocolate, lavender, and ivory; it also has a tremendous view of the craggy Oahu landscape from the enormous bed. Wang—whose own husband proposed to her in Hawaii—crammed the room with branded goodies from her housewares collection, including linens, glassware, and candles, and stocked it with her favorite DVDs (romantic comedies galore: My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Love Actually). Her setup has been such a postnuptial hit that Wang is eyeing other spots across the globe to open in the next few years.
