Lanvin Hearts SEVVA

We announced the Lanvin and SEVVA crossover a while back, see what guest blogger hkLifestyleGeek thinks of the tea when she tried it out.

Hostess with the Mostess Bonnae Gokson has partnered with Lanvin designer Alber Elbaz to create a Parisian-inspired "designer afternoon tea" and is available at SEVVA from December 2-30.

As usual Gokson has made sure every detail is accounted for -- including a cute and colourful round place mat featuring Elbaz's fanciful sketches. The sandwich roll wrap also has his designs printed on it.

But it's the delectable afternoon tea fans want to try. For savouries, there's the truffle scrambled egg on toast poilane, foie gras mousse and onion marmalade on waffle, petite finger rolls of French ham and Brie cheese, and the signature minced chicken sandwich to name a few.

The sweet treats include snowflake coconut chiffon sponge, French vanilla creme to raspberry, flower power espresso cheesecake, pineapple creme gateaux, and SEVVA's signature original caramel crunch cake.

The signature blue Lanvin bow adorns the top of the three-tier setting, while ornate sugar decorations that say "yum" and "love" add some fun as well as a caricature of Elbaz on top of a macaron.

For every "Lanvin Loves SEVVA" tea set, guests will receive a gift voucher for a designer memento (either a mirror or USB) that is redeemable at Lanvin's flagship boutique on Ice House Street.

The "Lanvin Loves SEVVA" afternoon tea set is HK$680 for two, and for a glass of Veuve Clicquot Rose NV champagne it's an additional HK$250.

It's neat to see the creative pair collaborate on a delicious tea set that will surely give you a fanciful sugar high.
