The man behind the celebrated brand marked the end of his career at his eponymous line at the end of 2009 by looking towards product design and even interior design – at Les Sources de Caudalie (located in Chemin de Smith Haut-Lafitte, Bordeaux-Martillac), Margiela designed the signature suite, which resides near a pond, is miles away from the French country decor that celebrates the other rooms in the Chateau where the spa resides.
The design of the room is masterfully Margiela, which consists of his white-on-white-on-gray palette and his playfulness. Forgoing the traditional headboard, twelve white pillows were stitched together and placed on the wall. Overlapping calfskin rugs cover the floor. The only dash of color comes from a red-hot lips sofa positioned in the room.
The suite, which re-opened in December of 2009, starts at 650 Euros and up.
