This Fashion Week it's spritzed, not stirred at London’s Hotel Café Royal

You’d be right in thinking that Fashion Week is mainly about the clothes, but turns out it’s about cocktails too.

 

Not since Givenchy worked with Audrey Hepburn on her wardrobe (we’re looking at you, iconic black dress from Breakfast at Tiffany’s) have we been so mesmorised by a collaboration with the designer.

 

A mixologist from the luxury Mayfair hotel, Hotel Café Royal, has gone and turned Givenchy’s sweet-smelling L’Atelier fragrances into a collection of cocktails - and they're pretty as a picture.   

 

That’s right, it’s couture meets cocktails.

 

Using an assortment of exotic ingredients, usually found in fragrances, mixologist Tiziano Tasso has shaken and stirred ingredients such as mandarin oils, jasmine and Siberian pine needle extract (but not all together, obviously) to create 7 new cocktails – priced at £13 each.

 

So what’s on the menu?
