It’s always exhilarating when two luxury brands join hands to curate a lifestyle experience for us. Hong Kong’s Ritz Carlton hotel and Moschino are collaborating to reinvent the concept of hi tea. Playing host to this elegant event is the luxury hotel’s Cafe 103!
Drawing inspiration from the brand’s signature character, the exquisite tea stand is bear-shaped. More so, the afternoon promises to be an afternoon filled with flavourful blends of tea and Italian delicacies.
One of the main reasons I admire Moschino’s style is its ability to distinguish itself from the rest with its quirky designs and out-of-the-box merchandise.
Executive Pastry Chef Richard Long’s creativity can be visualised in his ability to infuse tea-time treats with the signature Moschino style. His Crunch Chocolate Passion Tart is embossed with the fashion house’s double question mark logo; and right under it, there’s a chocolate coating with almond bits, rich chocolate cream and passion fruit puree at the core.
The Gianduja Lollipop entails the hazelnut chocolate ganache signature of Piedmont region, and is adorned with MOSCHINO’s most beloved teddy bear motif.
Gold Fresh Couture is a reflection of the label’s iconic cleaning spray perfume of the same name – white peach, vanilla and rhubarb. Poached white peach and rhubarb compote add a fruity sweetness to the generous spread of vanilla white chocolate cream housed in a golden chocolate box resembling the catchy gold perfume bottle.
Sicilian Pistachio Apricot is composed of layers of apricot compote, Sicilian pistachio cream and apricot jelly. A chocolate MOSCHINO zipper puller lies atop to reinforce brand presence.
Chef Richard’s very own version of Chocolate Pear Brownie highlights deliciously contrasting textures – crispy butter crumbles sandwiching moist chocolate cake infused with soft pear fillings.
