Combine world-class couture with five-star luxury thanks to The Kensington’s sleek new package offering.
Suite dreams await. To coincide with the opening of the Victoria & Albert Museum’s new exhibition, ‘Christian Dior – Designer of Dreams’, The Kensington is offering a lavish suite package filled with everything needed for a couture city experience.
London’s finest townhouse hotel, The Kensington is launching an exclusive new package ‘The House of Kensington’ that’s perfect for worshippers of Christian Dior.
Designed to celebrate the opening of ‘Christian Dior – Designer of Dreams’ at the nearby Victoria & Albert Museum, the three-night package includes a stay in one of the hotel’s sumptuous Signature Suites and two tickets to the exhibition. With the feel of a beautiful private residence, this extraordinary property makes the perfect stylish stay to accompany the suave new exhibition.
What’s more, the package also treats guests to a round of bespoke ‘The Corolle’ cocktails. No ordinary sip, this exclusive cocktail has been specially created by the hotel’s K Bar. Inspired by Dior’s first collection in 1947 named ‘La Ligne Corolle’, the drink provides an elevated twist on the classic ‘French 75’ and comes served in a cut crystal glass flute.
A must-visit for fashion fiends, The V&A’s ‘Christian Dior – Designer of Dreams’ exhibition will trace the history of Dior from his first collection to present day. It will also explore his relationship with Britain, a place he was particularly fond of and inspired by.
Following the cultural outing, guests can then recline in one of the hotel’s impressive signature abodes. Likened to spacious, private apartments, some of the suites are complemented with Juliette balconies that overlook the leafy corner of South Kensington’s classic thoroughfares.
The largest of the suites, The Brompton is a graceful throwback to Victorian grandeur, while the second largest, The Knightsbridge takes the same classical template and casts it in a more vibrant, contemporary rendering. Stylish and serene, the suites provide the perfect place to unwind after a day spend following Dior’s fascinating story.
When: Available from 2nd February – 30th June 2019.
Cost: The House of Kensington package starts from £1,800, with a three-night minimum stay.
