How many times have you drooled over a pair of shoes or thought a handbag was almost good enough to eat? Yeah, us too, and it looks like we're not the only ones, if the latest venture by the Berkeley Hotel in Knightsbridge, London is anything to go by!
Collaborating with Jimmy Choo, the hotel's pastry team, Pret-a-Portea, has drawn inspiration from the 65-year-old's signature designs and have created an even more delicious version of his shoes and handbags. Frankly, who knew that was possible?
From the 13th to the 19th of October, the uber-chic Berkeley Hotel will be providing fashion lovers with the opportunity to taste one of the team's amazing delicacies- and what self-respecting fashionista would give up the chance to sample the vanilla and chocolate flavoured Anouk pointed-toe pump? Exactly.
Served in The Caramel Room from 1 to 6pm, you can expect to pay £41 per person. (Or £51, if you fancy a glass of champagne with your miniature Candy cassis cremeux clutch. And who wouldn't?)
Sandra Choi, the brands creative director, enthused: “We are excited to have our Jimmy Choo collection immortalised by the Berkeley's Pret-a-Portea, which after nearly ten years has become such a respected institution in the fashion world. I can't wait to see our designs interpreted as edible delicacies!”
Jimmy Choo isn't the only designer to be immortalised in sugar though! Louboutin, Oscar de la Renta and Miu Miu will also be given the Pret-a-Portea team treatment. The pastry team's collection honours Louboutin's signature red sole while Miu Miu's skin tote takes the form of a chocolate pecan moelleux. * heavy breathing.*
Cake, biscuits and fashion; this is one collaboration we can definitely get behind.
