W x Thierry Lasry



It’s been a while since I’ve felt like having myself covered in leopard prints. When I visited Style Tribute’s Pop Up store, I immediately got inspired by this Tory Burch Top which popped amongst the rest on the rack, and I immediately had in mind a matching pair of sunglasses from Thierry Lasry which I envisioned wearing with this while look while browsing through their collection on Net-a-porter a few weeks back.
Once again, watching my style inspiration come to fruition is one of the best and most rewarding feelings to have.

French designer Thierry Lasry launched his eponymous sunglass line in 2006, and ever since has been gaining much attention and rapidly adopted by fashionistas around the world.

Learning about this collaboration between W Paris and Thierry Lasry before my trip got me all the more excited as my stay in the WOW Suite drew nearer. It was definitely beyond a dream for me and I was fully blown away by the entire experience but I will save that for another post.

Lasry revisited his iconic Sexxxy and Authority models to create two exclusive designs which are entirely hand-made in France with the best craftsmanship techniques and traditional know-how especially for W Paris Opéra. All guests of the E WOW Suite will get a pair of limited edition sunglasses which is otherwise available for purchase at €350 from the hotel.

The women’s pair incorporates gold sparkles and embellishments that are reminiscent of the “spark” motif that runs throughout the hotel, while the men’s version brings to mind the classical Haussmann style of W Paris – Opéra’s facade. I’m wearing the former.
According to Larsy, this project reflects the dynamic fusion of Paris and New York, the two cities that lie at the heart of his brand.

The “Suite Wonder – Thierry Lasry” package starts from €1,470 per night and is available from 2 June to 31 December 2015. Of which includes a one-night stay in an Extreme WOW suite and breakfast for two people at W Paris – Opéra, as well as two pairs of Thierry Lasry sunglasses, a chance to sample the special “Sexxxy by Thierry Lasry” cocktail and a Paris–New York guide with Thierry Lasry favourite spots in both cities.
