Afternoon Tea at Balthazar
Following a first collaboration of Chasing Rainbows cocktails and macaroons adorned with butterflies, we are once again partnering with Balthazar restaurant in London. Just as AW15 begins to arrive online, a new afternoon tea for winter launches today. The design studio looked to the twelve signs of the zodiac – a mystical inspiration that influenced everything from the prints to the colour palette. Likewise, Balthazar’s Head Pastry Chef, Régis Beauregard and his team worked to mirror this aesthetic. They captured not just the jewel tones of our winter collection but signature motifs of the brand like a hummingbird crafted in sugar. And of course, there is the sparkling Cosmic Cocktail – a heady mix of Campari, Mandarine Napoleon and sugar, topped with champagne. After all, as the nights draw in this autumn, tea will turn seamlessly into cocktail hour…
The Matthew Williamson AW15 Afternoon Tea at Balthazar will run from Monday 14th September 2015 until Sunday 28th February 2016 and will be available from 3pm to 5pm every day (including weekends) for £25 per person (£35 including a Cosmic Cocktail or glass of Champagne). There is also a fully gluten-free version of Balthazar’s afternoon tea available.
“It is wonderful to see my designs translated into cakes and cocktails.”
