What's the current must-have for any major fashion label? Not so much an "it" bag (very déclassé – do keep up) but an "it" hotel. Versace, Bulgari, Ralph Lauren and Christian Lacroix all have interior-designed hotels, while Armani is set to open one in Dubai and Moschino in Milan later this year. Now, the Italian label Missoni – best known for its multicoloured zigzag patterns – has just opened a 136-room hotel in Scotland's capital. More will follow in Kuwait, Cape Town and Oman. The location of the label's first property is surprising, since Edinburgh is not as obviously high fashion as say Milan or Paris, but Rosita Missoni, creative director and co-founder of the company has explained that "Edinburgh was the first offer we received. The city is full of charm, history, tradition, culture. And the location was quite prestigious."

Arrive at the Palomar in the early evening and you might feel as though you've gate-crashed a private party: hotel guests mingle in the double-height lobby as complimentary drinks and canapés are dispensed at the daily "wine hour". This is an indication of the reception you will receive at this lively boutique hotel, which is located in one of the most accessible districts in the US capital.
