In the Acne fashion show for Spring 2012 Ready-to-Wear, designer Jonny Johansson cited Marrakesh as a key influence in his collection. You can see the results in his wide legged pants, flowing caftans, and brightly colored pieces.
For a sensory trip to Morocco, try these New York City experiences, from a traditional style Hammam, to a riot of colors in your Marakesh-themed hotel room:
Spa: Trump Soho
The spa at the Trump Soho has created a traditional Hammam, a middle eastern spa experience, typically found in Morocco and Turkey. Offering both Turkish and Moroccan Hammam experiences, this is the closest you will get to the mosaic tiled steam rooms in Marrakesh.
Food: Little Morocco
Head into Queens for an authentic taste of Morocco at this tiny sandwich shop. Try the local staples of kefa meatballs and lamb stew, and finish your meal on a sweet note with some Moroccan mint tea.
Home Decor: Sheherazade
From traditional Moroccan slippers to colorful throw pillows, Sheherazade is a mecca for Moroccan home goods. Pick out a glass painted tea set, and invite some friends over for an Marakesh-themed tea party.
Hotel: Marrakesh Hotel NYC
With its brightly colored walls and tall leafy plants, the Marrakesh Hotel transports visitors to its desert oasis. Enjoy a meal at the Kazbar Lounge, where the smell of spices and local music create an intoxicating blend.
