It’s been a hell of a summer packed with the one thing I love more than fashion – lots of traveling! I just got back from Turkey last week but wanted to start with photos and experiences from the last trip. So first up we have one of my favorite memories from London – Pret-a-portea at The Berkeley. No color speaks London better than red so I chose to go with just that.
The concept behind the “pret” tea is pretty simple. The hotel curates their favorite pieces from the current season and then interprets them in sandwiches and sweet treats. The staff walked me through each element of the tea and the look it was inspired by – some esoteric, others literal references. They were the most attentive, with a fresh pot of hot tea waiting even before I could ask for a refill.
I had experienced “Pret-a-portea” a few years ago at Bergdorf Goodman but to experience it in its true setting was even better.
