Christian Lacroix Designs Bangkok Lounge
BANGKOK, Thailand - On September 17, 2012, Sofitel So Bangkok unveiled its unique executive lounge, Club Signature, a masterpiece of high fashion dedicated to the high life inspired by legendary couturier Mr. Christian Lacroix.
Offering an unparalleled discovery experience and an extensive range of benefits, Club Signature is a complimentary facility available to guests staying in "So Club" rooms and higher categories.
In a design-driven hotel, Club Signature is, as the name suggests, exemplary of Sofitel So Bangkok’s taking interior design to a new level that heightens guests’ experience and enhances their lifestyle choices. Giving it a unique ambience is the creative flair of Mr. Christian Lacroix.
Known for his dramatic creations for Hermes, as well as his own haute couture line, he has designed everything from lifestyle products, accessories and perfumes to stage costumes for The Metropolitan Opera in New York and the Opera National de Paris.
At Club Signature he has drawn on his inimitable personal touch of French elegance, theatrical flair, fantasy and folklore to produce a surprising ambience created out of imaginative patterns, rich textures and vibrant colours that combine to offer a surprising interplay of images and motifs of old Siam and 19th-century France. Most eye-catching of all is a huge surreal art piece that greets guests as they enter and in which figures in historical French dress are finished with heads of flowers typically found in Thailand.
