What happens when a fashionista and a hotel collaborate? Designer rooms fit for queens and kings.

The Langham, Melbourne and internationally-renowned fashion illustrator Kerrie Hess are excited to announce the debut of The Residence by Kerrie Hess. The fashion icon has produced a range of breath-taking illustrations for Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Net-a-Porter and now, The Langham, Melbourne.

“The Langham, Melbourne has been my home away from home for many years,” Kerrie Hess says, “and now I have truly re-created my home here at The Langham, Melbourne.”

Their long-standing partnership dates back to 2013 when the hotel hosted a Kerrie Hess art and afternoon tea series of events. Since then, the stylish hotel and the international fashionista have teamed up on an array of solo exhibitions, Instagram takeovers and the commissioning of exclusive prints that are available from the hotel’s petite luxury boutique, Flavours of Langham.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with world-renowned Kerrie Hess on this unique project and our first designer suite here at The Langham, Melbourne,” says André Jacques, Director of Sales & Marketing. “[It] will provide an elevated residential experience at our hotel for our domestic and suite customers.

“The suite is a spacious haven in which to relax and entertain and features parquetry floors, high ceilings, chandeliers, an abundance of natural light and inviting soft furnishings custom-made in collaboration with Kerrie Hess.”

Guests are now able to experience overnight stays in The Residence by Kerrie Hess. The gorgeously designed suite includes two bedrooms featuring a soft, muted palette of pastels throughout including Langham’s signature pale pink. There are also 14 iconic illustrations by Kerrie Hess, including a new specially commissioned piece of a couture model, dressed in a pink ball gown, set in the suite’s elegant lobby. Speaking of the lobby, it’s a spacious living area complete with a cocktail cart as well as a well-equipped kitchen and dining room that seats four guests.

“The suite even has a delightful rosé Champagne and specially made Koko Black chocolates. I love the idea of booking a romantic night in or a celebration with friends,” says Kerrie Hess.

The Residence by Kerrie Hess is available in two exclusive packages:
