Assouline St. Moritz Chic


This product is unavailable

Nestled in Switzerland’s alpine Engadin Valley, St. Moritz stands on its own amidst a sea of celebrated ski resorts in that it has long maintained an elusive allure. The winter home of personalities from Gunter Sachs and Gianni Agnelli to Sofia Loren, Elizabeth Taylor, Audrey Hepburn, John Lennon, and Claudia Schiffer, few places in the world manage to unite so many of the top names in cinema, art, and fashion all in one place, year after year. Author Dora Lardelli takes the reader on a journey through Chanel and Hitchcock’s favorite haunts and the hidden parties at Badrutt’s Palace, where royalty goes to play without forgetting the natural beauty, village charm, and architectural mastery that defines it. St. Moritz also takes readers on a majestic tour of its special events, from Winter Olympics to the annual Snow Polo World Cup, the summertime Jazz Festival and the British Classic Car Meeting. In St. Moritz, creatives and royals share skiwassers slope-side on the sheepskin benches of El Paradiso, pause to sip champagne on long strolls around its frozen, crystalline lake, and enjoy coffee and confections at the centuries-old Hanselmann. St. Moritz has never lost its inimitable appeal and will continue to reign as an elegant hideaway for all who call it a home away from home.
