Hong Kong’s top restaurants join forces with luxury brands to offer unique dining experiences
Fusing food and fashion
In Hong Kong, many of the city's top hotels and restaurants are teaming up with luxury brands to offer dining experiences with a difference.
The French Window restaurant located at IFC Mall, has teamed up with Elie Saab Parfum, to offer diners a set menu dinner themed on a honey-rose perfume. Running until February 20, guests can choose from three different menus, with options such as honey-glazed monkfish filet, and a rose-scented soufflé. Each visitor will also receive a fragrance sample gift.
The collaborations between restaurants and luxury brands seem to go down a real treat in the bustling city. In December, Sevva offered its customers the 'Lanvin Loves Sevva' afternoon tea set, which featured placemats designed by Lanvin, accompanied by a selection of Lanvin-themed treats - it proved so popular that the hotel owner revealed that the restaurant had to extend its space to cater to eager customers.
The Ritz-Carlton Hong Kong also favours the idea, as it has teamed up with Graff Diamonds to present an exclusive appointment-only afternoon tea. Held in the comforts of The Ritz-Carlton Suite, customers can enjoy afternoon tea while trying on high-end diamond jewellery.
The Landmark Mandarin Oriental is another hotel exploring the concept, as in the past it has hosted afternoon teas for a range of brands and designers including Jo Malone, Jimmy Choo, Marc Jacobs and Stella McCartney.
