Fashionable restaurants for fashionistas

As the European leg of the world’s fashion shows gets underway, showcasing leading designers’ Autumn/Winter 2016 collections, the demands of a fashionista’s unrelenting schedule are many and varied. Hopping aboard a magic carpet of style and elegance, thirsts and hungers are best sated at three superb catwalk-ready restaurants on our network. Greg Sunning reveals where the fashionista, fashion, and food combine in three of Europe’s most cosmopolitan cities.


Spring, London (Feb 19–23)

With many shows taking place within the splendour of Somerset House overlooking the River Thames, the high-ceilinged grandeur of resident restaurant Spring is supremely convenient and just the ticket. Focusing on seasonal ingredients with a female chef’s controlled artistry, the gently Italian-leaning menu will ease you from masterful British towards stylish Milan.


London, England

Flight Time: 7 hours, 35 minutes

Dessance, Paris (Mar 2–9)

After an arduous day amongst fashion’s finest, Philippe Baranes’ restaurant in the hipster Marais district might just be the perfect place to discover a new way of eating savoury and sweet dishes made with natural sugars. Chef Christophe Boucher’s set menu manoeuvres stylishly from savoury – infused with meat and fish – to vegetal sculptures, and the true dessert finale; or you can mix-and-match à la carte with standalone desserts to really take control.


Paris, France
Distance: 4,980 km
Flight Time: 7 hours, 15 minutes
Frequency: 3 flights a day

Ceresio 7, Milan (Feb 24–Mar 1)

Unrivalled city skyline views are on offer atop this modernised historic building with its two rooftop swimming pools. The twin brothers from designer label Dsquared2 are behind the hottest ticket in town atop their new design office. ‘Top-class’ premium ingredients drive this Italian menu from accomplished Chef Elio Sironi.


Milan, Italy
Distance: 4,359 km
Flight Time: 6 hours, 40 minutes
Frequency: 2 flights a day

Fashion meets food

While many of the catwalk shows are off-limits to the general public, restaurants are a prime spot for celebrity spotting. Book well ahead or dial it down to popular cafés and bistros for a between-show snack and reviving espresso – if there’s one thing Europe excels at, it’s fine pastries and rejuvenating coffee.
