If this were Paris in 1969, you could bet that Serge Gainsbourg and Jane Birkin would be staying at the Hôtel du Temps, the latest boutique hotel in Montmartre.  A project of Lionel Benesmoun and Alix Thomsen, with branding by Laura Leonard, the understated hotel is comprised of 23 rooms, a piano bar and lounge. At its opening in February this year, Alix Thomsen debuted her Fall 2013 collection with a party; the interiors, featuring palm printed textiles and hallways blocked in woven rattan, served as a tropical backdrop for the Parisian cool festivities. Visit  Hôtel du Temps  for more information. Photography courtesy of Hôtel du Temps .
