KAUI, Hawaii, Mar 18, 2009 / FW/ — Anne Fontaine – an oasis of calm in the middle of chaos; located on Rue Saint-Honoré in the heart of Paris’ first arrondisement. The juxtaposition of Anne Fontaine’s serene and calm fashion is completed by the beauty of her unbelievable spa.
Thursday, Mar 12th, final day of the Paris Prêt-a-porter Fall 2009 season, after a week of running around the City of Light to every fashion show on the calendar, my colleague Thomas Barnes and I who were flying the next day to back to Hawaii, were treated to a pre-flight spa experience.
My persona masseuse Soraya who is from Algeria, and was hand selected by Ms Fontaine herself, is in a word “precious”. Her hands are so well trained that one leaves the Fontaine spa knowing she is a gift from heaven.
Anne Fontaine spa is a sea of white with the sounds of water that channels itself along the floor. Guests are treated to an array of wonderfully exotic fruits and purees which precede all treatments. We can only say that if one has the opportunity, one must treat themselves to this oasis of beauty on Paris’ rue St. Honoré. Anne Fontaine spa is truly a treasure.
Mahalo from the boys from Kauai!
