"I have always dreamed of creating a unique experience that will enable us to offer visitors from all over the world the talents of tomorrow in a mythical place with a 100% Parisian soul," explains Sébastien Chapelle.
And the hotel is not lacking in soul, with its panelled alcoves, heavy traditional curtains and carpets in burgundy tones that Chapelle took care not to touch.
As for the interior design, it was conceived in the same spirit by Atelier HA, with whom Chapelle had already collaborated for the concept store Nous, his previous Parisian address. Legacy's originality lies in its ability to offer hotel guests an experience they have never seen before, with personalized advice, room delivery, on-site after-sales service and specific grooming products. But what makes the place like no other is probably Chapelle himself. There is no better way to find exclusive products that will be the must-have items of tomorrow.
Chapelle spent years in Colette's famous watchmaking corner, where he managed several exclusive launches, such as the Apple Watch, as well as unique collaborations with brands such as Rolex. The same spirit here, where he created a pop-up for the launch of the new One Plus 7 on 10th June, with its uncut, edgeless screen and revolutionary camera.
Even better, the new concept store offers an opportunity to rediscover Barrière Le Fouquet's iconic hotel with 19 new rooms and suites - including 4 with breathtaking views of the Champs-Élysées - as well as its restaurant Le Joy.
The concept store is set to become a must-visit for the French capital's well-heeled international travellers and Parisians alike.
