Dreams for NoMad Hotel... In the Bag?... Art Opening at Dior...

French designer Jacques Garcia has decorated hotels in Paris... Could Akris, the Swiss maker of luxury clothing, be mulling an eventual foray into accessories?

GARCIA CHECKS IN: French designer Jacques Garcia has decorated hotels in Paris — including fashion favorite Hotel Costes — but he’s really always had a thing for New York City. Now, with Manhattan’s NoMad, Garcia gets to bring his signature style to a Gotham hotel for the first time. “New York has always brought me luck,” said Garcia, whose private clients include the Sultan of Brunei. “It all started in the Eighties with Sotheby’s, Danube was a great success in 1990 and Spice Market brought such enthusiasm in 2000,” he said of his other New York projects. “In 2010, I have a new dream for the city and this hotel.” The 12-story NoMad Hotel, which will be on Broadway and 28th Street, will have 160 rooms and 11 suites with loftlike open plans. It is to open in fall 2009.
