The Berkley’s Pret-a-Porta tea offers everything you’d expect from a traditional afternoon tea but with a twist: each of the sugary fancies is styled after a key fashion look of the season.. It may not be the quintessential English afternoon tea but who cares? It’s fabulous darling!

The Fashionista’s tea includes a selection of sweet treats including:

Manolo Blahnik slingback chocolate biscuit heel with baby blue icing topped with timeless pearls.

Oscar de la Renta playful high-waisted peach-pink bavarois shorts embellished with strawberry compote rosettes.

Dolce & Gabbana Sicilian chic pistachio green and vanilla striped pannacotta dress topped with chocolate ring.

Alexander McQueen whimsical yellow honeycomb cream oversized dress topped with marzipan bee.

Prada Geisha-like white chocolate and Grand Marnier oversized coat embellished with red poppies.

The menu is available to view here.

Charmingly, the waiter talks you through the ‘collection’ using framed catwalk pictures of the exact outfits that inspired each creation. Gimmicky? Yes, but beautifully rendered and a break from the norm.
