B ut we will. Adieu for now. We are booking Air France this minute. They have those sumptuous new La Première private suites on certain flights, where we can recline the comfy seat into a bed — almost seven feet long! — and shut the whole world out, until we can be together again. For you are still the Ritz Paris the world knows and loves. You're you, just slightly new. That dashing Christian Boyens, directeur général of the Ritz, just confided what makes him happiest: "Our loyal guests coming back to the hotel, feeling at home in their private residence on the Place Vendôme," and that "future guests will continue to look to the Ritz Paris as the epitome of French art de vivre." The service, the sumptuousness, the tales — their tellings burnished with time. Your walls may be lighter and brighter, but they still talk. Toujours. On the lobby grand staircase: Prada dress $2,630, corset $895, tights $545, and shoes, price upon request, all at the Prada boutique, Saks Fifth Avenue. Hermès high-neck dress in double-faced silk knit $8,050, silk and cashmere socks $305, and calfskin pump $970, all at the Hermès boutique. Opposite: In Suite Impériale: Dolce & Gabbana black lace crocheted dress $5,395, brass cut-out collar with crystal embellishment $4,045, silk bra $545, and silk panty $255, all at the Dolce & Gabbana boutique, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Tootsies, The Webster. 72
