Join us at Château de Stylist for two nights of luxury as we create a special issue from a grand château


Sound the Francophile klaxon – in last week’s issue Stylist revealed that the team will be packing up the office and moving to the impressive Château de Stylist (above) in June. And 10 lucky readers have the opportunity to experience 48 hours of French indulgence with us. What’s the occasion? We’re finally acting on our long-time secret wish to become a bit more French and have teamed up with Chambord, the iconic French black raspberry liqueur, to create a special issue dedicated to la vie française at the château.

As well as sharing your ideas for the issue and watching it come together (the Stylist team will be investigating the complexities of Gallic culture and conducting a fashion shoot) you’ll be living the Francophile dream. A welcome goodie bag will include Prestat Pink Marc de Champagne Truffles, cult beauty products from Clarins, Givenchy, L’Occitane, Bourjois and Bioderma, a Bonsoir Paris City Map Guide and a Vintage Classics pocket-sized edition of Simone de Beauvoir’s seminal feminist tome The Second Sex. Thanks to Chambord, you’ll also enjoy the best of France’s gastronomy (including a cocktail masterclass) and hear inspiring talks by successful women – such as Audrey Diwan, editor-at-large of Stylist France – who will share the secrets of their incredibly chic lives. Add in Chambord cocktails for an extra bit of French luxury and this is an event not to be missed. À bientôt!
