Hong Kong, 21 May 2019 – To celebrate the 40th anniversary of Phase Eight, a premium womenswear brand from Britain, the Lobby Lounge at Marco Polo Hongkong Hotel and the brand are delighted to jointly present the “British Wardrobe Afternoon Tea”, from 27 May to 31 August 2019.
Established in 1979, Phase Eight offers features that customers have grown to recognise – feminine, luxurious, warm and inviting. Their exclusive designs combined with high-quality fabrics and unique prints allowing for individual translation, present a design philosophy that transcends all ages.
Inspired by Phase Eight and elements of Britain, our talented pastry chefs have created the stylish afternoon tea with nine sweet items and four savoury teatime treats, showcasing a gorgeous ‘wardrobe’ to our guests. Representing the “Eight” from Phase Eight, the “8” shaped red circles over the Caramel Macaron with Sea Salt entices guests’ eyes. The fluffy and chewy macaron is filled with perfectly balanced sweet and salty filling, creating a truly memorable bit.
Adding an elegant touch for women, the fascinator is an iconic styling element, popular among the royal family. To incorporate this unique fashion element in the afternoon tea, our chef has specially crafted exquisite red fascinators and topped them with smooth, indulgent Earl Grey Chocolate Basket, offering a delicious, fascinating treat. Topped with feather, a popular fascinator decoration, the Lime Basil Mousse with Strawberry will win guests’ hearts with its light, fresh flavours and a crisp pastry base.
The New York Cheesecake with Blueberry is made from the chef’s secret recipe, with every bite deliciously rich and creamy. Decorated with a hanger on top, the blue dessert is both lovely and impressive. A moist, tender cupcake topped with smooth raspberry cream and an adorable pink dress, the Raspberry Cupcake brings sweet surprise to all guests.
Other delectable delights include Madeleine with Rose Pedal Flavour, Raisin Scones, Strawberry Roll and Mango Tart. Savoury delicacies include Smoked Trout with Horseradish and Onion, Cured Swiss Ham on Grissini, Apple Slice with Tete Moine Cheese and Pesto and Air-dried Bunder Fleisch.
An exclusive $100 cash coupon will be given to each of the afternoon tea guest for purchasing Phase Eight’s products at stores in Hong Kong. Enjoy a complimentary Phase Eight accessories box upon purchase of three regular priced items or above (except accessories), at the Phase Eight store at Harbour City#. Moreover, the first 150 guests to attend this special afternoon tea will receive a complimentary Phase Eight GWP mirror as a gift.
In addition, shoppers at Phase Eight who spend HKD$8,000 or above will receive a voucher for our “British Wardrobe Afternoon Tea” for two persons#. Guests presenting the voucher can enjoy the afternoon tea at the cosy Lobby Lounge on a complimentary basis. For these special guests from Phase Eight, our pastry chefs will craft a gorgeous chocolate pink dress with fascinator as appreciation of their support.
