Fashionable Reading

New York fashion designers Joseph Altuzarra and Kate and Laura Mulleavy of Rodarte have joined with the Mandarin Oriental New York to create a holiday reading list with a difference. To celebrate the launch of the hotel’s new suites, Altuzarra has put together a selection of books that have inspired his collections. You will have the chance to enjoy The Line of Beauty by Alan Hollinghurst, Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov, and In Search of Lost Time by Proust. If you haven’t quite finished your tome before you leave, don’t worry. Guests are invited to take home a book if they wish. While the Mulleavy sisters have created a map of Manhattan that features the places that have defined their lives and careers, it’s as close as you can get to a fashion insiders’ peek at the city.
