Tea time is one of our favorite English traditions and London’s Berkeley Hotel continues to make it a fashionable endeavor. Now in it’s sixth year, The Berkley’s Prêt-à-Portea Collection transforms some of the season’s most coveted designs into delectable pastries. For Spring 2011, the collection features Victoria Beckham’s luxe summer crocodile tote cake, Tory Burch’s orange and pink frock cookie, Roger Vivier’s black and white chocolate striped heel, and Miu Miu’s must-have blue and white bikini biscuit. Pieces from Tom Ford, Chloe, Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney, and Jill Sander have also been replicated for the tasting.
To make the service even chicer, The Berkeley has partnered with Thomas Goode of Mayfair to create a bespoke collection of fine bone china, which is used for daily tea service; champagne is served in Baccarat flutes.
Stylish stars like Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, and designer Anya Hindmarch have all indulged in Prêt-à-Portea and London’s fashionable foodies consider it the ultimate destination.
