What to Read During New York Fashion Week (and Beyond)
Let designer Joseph Altuzarra help you out with his reading list for the Mandarin Oriental, New York's Bedside Reading Program.
The madness known as New York Fashion Week is fast approaching (T-minus seven days, people). And while the weeklong extravaganza hardly gives industry folks a chance to catch their breath in between runway shows and late-night parties, the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in New York is hoping to help its guests relax into the night with its Bedside Reading Program with a little help from one of Hollywood's favorite red-carpet designers.

The hotel, which is debuting 42 restyled suites, has partnered with NY-based designer Joseph Altuzarra to provide each suite with a selection of his favorite books. Those titles include The Line of Beauty by Alan Hollinghurst, Lolita by Vladimir Nabokov and In Search of Lost Time by Marcel Proust. Plus, these tomes are available for you to take home, if you'd like. (#PretaBookClub, anyone?)
Not only will guests be welcomed with Altuzarra's reading list, but they'll also receive the Rodarte New York City Guide, which was designed exclusively for the NY location by designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy and features their go-to spots in the Big Apple (the Opening Ceremony store and Dashwood Books included). So, who's ready to check in already?
