Elevating the quintessential British event to stylish new heights, Harrods has teamed up with Sophia Webster to design an exquisite afternoon tea. The Chiara sandals, the Bibi Butterfly flats… sample sweet versions of Sophia Webster’s iconic shoes, created by Harrods’ in-house chefs. Taking butterflies as the theme, the stunning tea will be available in The Georgian from Monday 15th May to Friday 23rd June 2017.
The spread features patisseries inspired by the designer’s Spring/Summer 2017 shoe collection, with tailored flavours to match the designs and delicate details. "I’ve really enjoyed working with the culinary masters at Harrods on this afternoon tea collaboration," Sophia explains. "It’s been a fun and creative process to bring my shoes to life in a new format - through dessert!"
Too-good-to-share treats include an iced Chiara sandal gingerbread biscuit, a passion-fruit Shoe Box and a golden sea-salt and caramel mousse sphere, decorated with a hand-piped chocolate butterfly wing. Alongside this, you’ll find peach and passion-fruit macaroons, chocolate sponge cake and other afternoon tea favourites, all served on Wedgwood crockery from the Vibrance collection, making it a truly elegant affair.
To complete the experience, treat yourself to Sophia Webster’s Evangeline Sandal, designed exclusively for Harrods. The swoon-worthy design features pink degrade glitter detail, a new technique showcased in her SS17 collection.
