THE RITZ-CARLTON, HONG KONG

Do you believe in pink? Café 103 at The Ritz-Carlton, Hong Kong joins hands with Givenchy to launch Givenchy I Believe in Pink Afternoon Tea running from February 1 to March 31, 2019. The collaboration marks Givenchy Beauty’s first launch of afternoon tea offers.

From the haute couture gowns a la Hubert de Givenchy to the label’s exquisite makeup range, pink has been ubiquitous in the Maison’s heritage and history. It is not only a manifestation of femininity but also an assertion of independence and uniqueness.

Inspired by Givenchy’s newly released Le Rose Perfecto lipstick collection, Executive Pastry Chef Richard Long interpreted the kaleidoscopic of pink hues into delectable sweets.

The afternoon tea set includes scone, five sweet items and four savory items. Highlighted items put a whimsical spin on classic desserts such as tarts and verrines. The expertly crafted gourmet bites captured the beauty of Le Rose Perfecto’s iconic hues from Glazed Beige to Timeless Pink and Cosmic Plum.

Pink Kiss, for example, is no ordinary strawberry tart, but a painstakingly crafted work of art infusing strawberry confit and a generous portion of strawberry mousse, topped with an alluring lip-shaped chocolate art. Create your own perfect glossy pout with the tube filled with raspberry glaze.

With an eye-catching velvety presentation, Soothing Red is another tantalizing treat you won’t be able to resist. The crispy raspberry bits and the soft-and-smooth raspberry cream on top create a harmonic symphony of textures. Heavenly rich chocolate cream inside the white chocolate shell is balanced to perfection with the refreshing raspberry jam.

Be inspired by Perfect Rose – the lychee rose verrine that is going to win every lady’s heart. Rose mousse, almond cake, lychee jelly and the amazingly buttery raspberry crumble are layered in a glass cup, topped with a piece of chocolate with the Givenchy’s iconic logo on it.

Named after Givenchy’s campaign I Believe in Pink, the pink guava and vanilla cake features two layers of vanilla sponge cake with pink guava jelly and vanilla mousse in between. Decorated with a pink guava glaze, this beautifully layered cake is pleasing to eyes as much as to the palate.

Audacious yet elegant, Givenchy’s Le Rose Perfecto collection fulfills your wildest fantasies of the pink universe. The collection of lip care and lip color products in genuine pink leather offers nourishing, smoothing and plumping action by infusing shea extract for maximized hydration and shine. The lipsticks also contain hyaluronic acid spheres which can increase their volume by 50 times, resulting in visibly more beautiful and fuller lips.

Guests who enjoy the Givenchy I Believe in Pink Afternoon Tea set will be eligible to redeem a special gift set including a mini Le Rose Perfecto lipstick and a luxury travel kit of beauty essentials at all Givenchy beauty counters (DFS counters excluded) in Hong Kong. A total of 10 lucky guests will also have a chance to win a full size Le Rose Perfecto lipstick- details will be announced on Givenchy Hong Kong’s official Facebook Page.

Be pleasantly surprised on Valentine’s Day with a limited edition mug for guests who order the tea set on February 14, 2019
