MO Bar at The Landmark Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong is delighted to announce its latest fashion tea in collaboration with Jimmy Choo, one of the world’s most treasured luxury brands. Jimmy Choo shoes and handbags are often worn by style icons around the world, from celebrities to royalty, and from musicians to heads of state.
From 2 April to 5 May, MO Bar’s Jimmy Choo afternoon tea will take inspiration from Jimmy Choo’s Spring/Summer 2013 collections, which will highlight the haute gypsy glamour of the late ‘60s and early ‘70s and feature rich and vibrant colors and embossed leather, fringes and tassels, to reveal the fun-loving side of women.
“We are excited to be working with Jimmy Choo. The sexy stiletto heels, glamorous designs, great sense of style and colour, and exceptional Italian craftsmanship serve as excellent inspiration for our culinary team,” said Sidney Schutte, Executive Chef at The Landmark Mandarin Oriental. “When creating this afternoon tea, we wanted to showcase Jimmy Choo’s Spring/Summer shoe wardrobe that is filled with bold and feminine shades. We have crafted edible miniature high heels and also took inspiration from the colours of the handbags and clutches, and have created some of the most fashionable-looking and delectable savoury and sweet items to convey their style.
he added. Tea items include smoked salmon cucumber sandwiches made to resemble the design of the CAYLA clutch decorated with brightly coloured cream cheese pyramid studs; and the white chocolate bag based on one of Jimmy Choo’s signature leopard print designs. “We are excited by this collaboration, which allows our guests to touch and feel the ‘Choo’s in a completely new way!” added Schutte.
MO Bar’s Jimmy Choo tea set will feature mouth-watering savoury bites such as Foie Gras High Heels on Crispy Brioche Bread, Ham Mousse Sandwiches with Savora Mustard, and Smoked Salmon Sandwiches with Cucumber and Cream Cheese. Sweet temptations include Milk Chocolate High Heels filled with Lemon and Chocolate Biscuits, White Chocolate Bag filled with Lychee, Rose and Raspberry Mousse, Chupa Chup Macaroon filled with Passion Fruit and Mango Cream, and Green Tea, Strawberry, and Yuzu Mousse Shooter, as well as MO Bar’s signature light-as-a-feather Ginger and Raisin Scones.
This delightful afternoon tea is priced at HKD260 per person from Mondays to Fridays, including the three-tier tea set, a delectable cake buffet and a choice of JING tea or coffee; and HKD280 per person on Saturdays and Sundays, topped with a weekend dessert buffet. All guests will receive a special gift set from Jimmy Choo with the tea set.
