Alice in Wonderland Hand Mirror
Details: Designer Benjamin Noriega-Ortiz reimagined L.A.’s iconic Mondrian hotel for the new century, tripping out the interior in a kitschy-cool tribute to Lewis Carroll and life through the looking glass. Mini-bars in the 230 rooms didn’t escape his makeover either: that’s where you can snap up a Noriega-Ortiz–designed souvenir, fittingly an Alice in Wonderland hand mirror ($25) that’s sold only at the hotel. The trippy-looking glass (in shatterproof acrylic) is the first in a series of unique in-room goodies that Morgans Hotel Group, owner of the Hudson and Delano hotels (among others), is planning to roll out for each of its properties.
