    Nosh on Tom Ford at The Berkeley Hotel's Prêt-à-Portea:)

    As Fashion Week migrates from New York to London, Team Hotel Chatter thought it an appropriate time to sample The Berkeley Hotel's kitschy, but undeniably cute, Prêt-à-Portea. The sartorially themed tea is inspired by major designers from London and beyond, with attempts made to capture their aesthetic in the form of twee cookies and cakes.

    From a color blocked cream crème de menthe and coconut jelly derivative of Jil Sander to a raspberry and lychee cream Marc Jacobs jumpsuit in cookie form, the sweet, lilliputian treats are equally "aww" and cavity inducing. (After a few bites, we were keeling over in near sugar shock.)
    Is the experience garishly frou-frou? Well, yes, but it's also utterly fun and a welcome breath of fresh air in comparison to the uptight teas we've partaken of in the past. A session of Prêt-à-Portea will set you back £36.50 per person, or £46.50 with champagne. Additional glasses of champagne run about £13.50 per glass. Book now and you might catch sight of a few Vogue-ites pretending to nosh on a Miu Miu bikini biscuit alongside you.
