Italy never goes out of fashion – with one of its greatest bastions, the Four Seasons in Milan, now with an all-new Fashion Suite (www.fourseasons.com/milan; from £3,939). Black and white graphics and lashes of chameleon green give a strong hit of the 1950s. The designer is Pierre-Yves Rochon, who was also behind the Carrara marble-decked interiors of the Palazzo Parigi (www.palazzoparigi.com; from €500, pictured) – a 98-room-and-suite five-star in the Via Brera district that opened in September last year, with the biggest ballroom in the city. In Tibet that accolade goes to the Shangri-La Lhasa(www.shangri-la.com; from £220), a new 289-room hotel opening on April 17. Situated at 3,650m, it’s a place you need to rush to with care. This is high-altitude luxury, and if you take the train to get there (two days’ travel from Beijing), you’ll be given bottled oxygen to help you breathe more easily.
