Vienna Escape : Das Triest Hotel



Beautiful Das Triest hotel located near Karlsplatz,  in very heart of Vienna was our second stop.

Name of this first design hotel in Vienna comes from former use of the building. Actually, the building itself was used 300 years ago as the main station for the stagecoach route from Vienna to Trieste. The original vaulted ceiling are still on show.

Hotel was designed by famous British interior architect Sir Terrence Conran, he created modern interior with simple and pure lines in contrast to it's Art Nouveau facades. 

72 Guestrooms and suits are decorated with interior finest names such as: Philippe Stark, Wittman and Minotti, linens are Frette, in toilette you will be welcomed with Molton Brown cosmetics. Rooms offer  IMac and Bang and Olufsen technics.

The stuff is so warm, welcoming and patient, they will tell you all about spots you will have to see, and museums you should visit.

Breakfast is amazing and for dinner I suggest trying their award winning Collio restaurant with Northern Italian cuisine.

Hotel Das Triest has impressive guest list with names such as: Kylie Minogue, Eros Ramazzoti, Luca Missoni and many, many others:)

Near Das Triest is famous Cafe Landtmann which has been Viennese institution since 1873 and since has been visited by guests such as Freud and Marlene Dietrich.


                                                                         ......


Prelep hotel Das Triest sa svojom fasadom u Art Nouveau stilu je bio nasa druga stanica. On je smesten gotovu u srcu Beca, nadomak Karlsplatza.


Hotel Das Triest je zapravo prvi design hotel u glavnom gradu Austije, otvoren 1995. godine i potpisuje ga cuveni britanski arhitekta Sir Terence Conran. Njemu je ovo ujedno bio i prvi  pojekat ovoga tipa.
Enterijer hotela odlikuju ravne linije i jednostavne forme sa namestajem koji potpisuju Minotti, Philippe Stark i Wittman. 

Ime hotela ima simboliku koja proizilazi iz prethodne namene ove zgrade, naime pre 300 godina ona je bila glavna stanica kocija koje putuju za Trst.

Donji deo hotela je sacuvao zakrivljene svodove karakteristicne za 18. vek i sada su te prostorije prenamenje u apartmane, konferencijske sale i restoran.

Osoblje je predivno i odogovorice na sva vasa pitanja, kao i dati prave savete sta je najbolje posetiti u skladu sa vremenom koje provodite u Becu.

Kada pomislite na dorucak u Becu asocijacija je carstvo ukusa i u pravu ste. U Becu jednostavno sluze najbolji dorucak ikada. U Das Triest hotelu ce Vas ponuditi i sa organiskim dzemovima od lokalnih proizvodjaca i to su ukusi koje morate probati.

Posle vise casovne setnje najbolje je opustiti se iz fantasticnu veceru u njihovom  nagradjivanom  restoranu italijanske kuhinje - Collio .

Das Triest Hotel ima impresivnu listu gostiju kao sto su: Kylie Minogue, Luca Missoni, Robbie Willimas i mnogi drugi.

Style Spotlight: Amal Alamuddin

                                       photocredit: fameflynet.uk.com

Beautiful Amal showed her amasing sense of style on her civil wedding in Venice. She was wearing amazing De la renta jumpsuit! This look was my favorite!

Prosle nedelje je ceo svet gledao u sarmantnu Amal, koja je i najstrože modne kritičare očarala svojim stilom.
Moj favorit je ovaj Oscar de la Renta kombinezon koji je vešto ukombinovala sa seširom! Malo me podseća na Biaca Jegger momenat.

In Love with Adres Gallardo


Few months a go I came across this unique jewelry designer from Madrid, Andres Gallardo.
His pieces are made from broken porcelain, crystals and leather and they are so unique and different from anything I've seen before. 
AG jewelry instantly hit covers of  respectable magazines such as Elle, Vogue and Harper's Bazaar and also become a personal favorite of famous singer and style icon Lana del Ray.

Pre par meseci sam naisla na ovaj jedinstveni brend nakita sa bazom u Madridu - Adres Gallardo. Njihovi komadi su ručni rad, napravljeni od kože, kristala i lomljenog porcelana i drugačiji su od svega što sam videla do sada.
AG nakit je za kratko vreme postao veoma popularan i dospeo je na naslovne strane svih značajnih modnih magazina, ali i postao favorit čuvene pevačice i modne ikone Lane del Ray.
U Hrvatskoj ga možete nabaviti u Malai Concept Store u Zagrebu.
