ROOM SERVICE: Bespoke travel service Mr. & Mrs. Smith has teamed with Roksanda Ilincic on a limited-edition “Get a Room!” gift card. The British designer has also hand-picked a selection of hotels as her favorites, including The Connaught in London, the Bulgari resort in Bali, Villa Cora in Florence and L’Hotel in Paris among others. The gift card designed by Ilincic features a graphic design composed of geometric shapes in shades of pink and turquoise.
“Mr & Mrs Smith works with some of the most architecturally inspiring hotels around the world, from Hotel Unique in São Paulo to the Bulgari Resort Bali,” said Ilincic. “I take inspiration from travel and was keen to collaborate with a brand that shares a vision for world-class design and attention to detail. A hotel gift card is so much more than the packaging it sits in — it’s the gift of an experience and the promise to be whisked away. I view my designs in a similar way — they are transformative and more than the sum of their parts. A hotel stay should be fun, sexy and stylish, so I’ve used my signature vivid color palette to add a touch of playfulness to the gift card, whilst clean lines retain an element of sophistication.”
The limited-edition gift card is available from today in denominations upward of 50 pounds (about $76 at current exchange), which can be redeemed against bookings at mrandmrssmith.com.
