Fashionistas with a sweet tooth in London may want to put The Berkeley on their agenda, as the luxury hotel has teamed up with Jimmy Choo to offer an English tea service inspired by the shoe designer. To create the edible ‘Choo collection,’ pastry chefs pored over the brand’s iconic shoes and accessories in the kitchens of the Knightsbridge hotel, examining the materials, embellishments, prints and patterns of the latest catwalk designs.

Guests of the hotel’s Pret-a-Portea Jimmy Choo Collection can expect to nibble daintily on cakes and pastries shaped like the brand’s classic ‘Anouk' shoe, a pointy-toe pump that comes in a rainbow of colors. Attendees of London Fashion Week in September, meanwhile, can also partake in the hotel’s regular Pret-a-Portea, which is served during the afternoon daily in The Caramel Room.
