Va Va Vroom

Classic car obsessives, start your engines. The most celebrated designer in Paris, Tristan Auer—who tricked out Hôtel de Crillon’s twin 1973 Citroën DS’s, not to mention the hotel’s interiors—will tailor your own vintage Jaguar, like the one Steve McQueen used to drive.

Foremost interpreter of contemporary French style, Tristan Auer has become the interior designer of choice for chic Parisians, fashion boutiques, and hoteliers. Among his recent projects: restoring two vintage Citroën DS’s for Hôtel de Crillon, A Rosewood Hotel, for which he also designed many of the public spaces. A hit among the fashion cognoscenti, Auer now offers his “car tailoring” services to vintage automotive collectors who want their vehicles to exude the same distinctive, glamorous style.

Now, for Rosewood Limited Edition, Auer is partnering with Hôtel de Crillon to create an experience that will have you working together to customize a vintage Jaguar E-Type Cabriolet—a sexy, much-coveted roadster similar to Steve McQueen’s fabled “Green Rat.”

You’ll meet with Tristan Auer, named 2017 Designer of the Year by Maison & Objet, for a private inspiration tour of Paris in one of the Hôtel de Crillon’s bespoke Citröen DS’s. Visiting his studio, you’ll work together to hand-select every detail of your vintage Jag, including the leather and interior finishes—luxury fabrics provided by Loro Piana Interiors.

The experience includes a two-night stay in the signature Duc de Crillon Suite, a centuries-old space that once served as the Crillon family’s private chapel. You’ll also spend an evening—with up to 11 of your guests—in the hotel’s La Cave d’Exception, where executive chef Boris Campanella will serve up inventive French cuisine, with wines paired by Chef Sommelier Xavier Thuizat.

After the tailoring of your Jaguar is completed, you’ll have the opportunity to enter it into competition at the ultra-exclusive, invitation-only Chantilly Arts & Elegance Richard Mille, to be held in 2021. But don’t be surprised if you already feel like a winner.
