Following a spring floral fix at the Boden press day Kat, Rosie and I drifted to Knightsbridge for a very late and very luxurious lunch. Something I don’t often mention here is my passion for designer accessories, in particular, handbags and so I couldn’t wait to sample Pret-a-Portea at the Berkeley. After all, what could be sweeter than a fusion of afternoon tea and fashion? Darling!
As you will see from my photographs the whole experience was an utter delight, with dainty sandwiches and speciality teas including chocolate mint truffle and opulent orange chili. The most exciting part was the cake stand which was made up of cakes, mousses and biscuits inspired by items from this season’s fashion collections. Too adorable for words!
I have to admit we were so engrossed in conversation that we almost missed Sarah, Duchess of York sat opposite. I guess I was too busy nibbling on my Moschino bag to notice, sorry Sarah!
