Fashion designers are now putting their signatures on traditional English afternoon pastries & cakes. Jimmy Choo has announced it’s first-ever association with the Berkeley in chic Knightsbridge, London with the launch of “Pret-a-Portea – The Jimmy Choo Collection”
At the mere mention of the British luxury brand Jimmy Choo, I’m sure you have gauged that this is not your typical afternoon tea session. Berkeley’s pastry team is working in collaboration with Jimmy Choo to design a handcrafted artisanal assortment of cakes and pastries resembling their latest collection of shoes.
“We are excited to have our Jimmy Choo collection immortalised by the Berkeley’s Pret-a-Portea, which after nearly 10 years has become such a respected institution in the fashion world. I can’t wait to see our designs interpreted as edible delicacies!” Sandra Choi, Creative Director Jimmy Choo.
The chic edible collection will mark its debut at the Caramel Room at the Berkeley from 13th – 19th October 2014 from 1 pm – 6 pm every day, featuring the latest styles from the Jimmy Choo collection ranging from the quintessential pointy toe pumps to Anouk – a myriad of fashionable colours.
Who knew you could savour a Jimmy Choo collection at a reasonable £57 ($68) per person? For £51 ($85) enjoy a glass of Laurent Perrier champagne, or alternatively for the fashion conscious, a £57 ($95) including a glass of couture champagne.
The Berkeley has been home to a host of fashion collaborations with Victoria Beckham, Oscar de La Renta and many others debuting their delectable collections. I guess this time Jimmy Choo made the cut.
