In true British fashion, NARS Cosmetics is celebrating its latest collaboration with award-winning UK fashion designer Christopher Kane by hosting a month of afternoon tea specials between 2:30 and 5:30 every Monday to Friday at Aberdeen Street Social, PMQ.
Afternoon tea set at Aberdeen Street Social
Hong Kong’s social destination of choice, Aberdeen Street Social, has enlisted its talented Pastry Chef, Jessica Wu, to creatively reinterpret Kane’s limited-edition collection of neon and nude cosmetics for NARS and apply them to a classic British menu of Scones, Sweets and Savories. The tea set uses succulent, ripe fruit and a colourful palette of icings to create a variety of delectable selections such as Cranberry scones with rhubarb and rose jam, Strawberry cheesecake verrine, Pink raspberry and lemon balm éclairs and Candied orange éclairs. And Jessica’s Gold truffle lollipops, Egg and cress finger sandwiches, and Smoked salmon and cream cheese finger sandwiches are light bites that are easy on the eye. At HK$288 for two, the Afternoon Tea Set is accompanied by a selection of world-class teas, coffee and one of Aberdeen Street Social’s signature cakes: JAAL or Carrot. Ruinart Champagne is also available at an additional HK$100 or HK$115 per glass for those who enjoy a little bubbly on the side.
In addition to enjoying the exclusive Aberdeen Street Social x NARS Afternoon Tea Set, each guest will receive a complimentary NARS Larger than life mini-eyeliner, a NARS mini lipgloss and a gift certificate to visit the brand’s new NARS Boutique located in the heart of Central (address: G/F, Tak Shing House, 20 Des Voeux Road, Central) for a 15-minute make-up service with a limited-edition Christopher Kane product.
“With its unique location at PMQ, Aberdeen Street Social embodies the unconventional creativity of our Christopher Kane collection,” said Chester Tsung, Brand Manager of NARS Hong Kong. “We are excited to help unveil this limited-edition Afternoon Tea Set, inspired by the nature of neons and nudes of our designer palette.”
The Aberdeen Street Social X NARS Afternoon Tea Set will be available from 02 to 31 July 2015. Afternoon tea has never been so glowing!
