From July 14 to September 16, 2018, Café 103 will collaborate with Moschino to please even the most discerning palates with a specially crafted afternoon tea brimming with delightful Italian flavors. Housed in an exclusive bear-shaped tea set stand paying homage to the label’s most recognizable character, the Moschino Afternoon Tea promises to be a new benchmark for the midday pastime.
The creativity of Moschino is expressed through a new combination of stylistic elements that conveys its vision of a disenchanted future. Since Jeremy Scott’s appointment as Creative Director in 2013, capsule collections have been introduced in collaboration with iconic characters, figures and restaurants such as Betty Boop, Barbie, Looney Tones, McDonald’s, The Powerpuff Girls, SpongeBob and more. Even though Moschino is an expression of contemporary fashion, it stands apart from the chorus and sings solo to give its own personal rendition of the music of today.
Executive Pastry Chef Richard Long incorporates iconic elements of the Italian luxury fashion house into the afternoon tea treats, turning Moschino’s eccentric playful touches to edible pleasures. Crunch Chocolate Passion Tart reveals layers of gastronomic pleasure under the fashion house’s double question mark logo – chocolate coating with almond bits, rich chocolate cream and passion fruit puree at the core.
Gianduja Lollipop features the hazelnut chocolate ganache signature of Piedmont region, and is adorned with Moschino’s most beloved teddy bear motif to melt any heart.
Gold Fresh Couture is inspired by the fragrance notes of the label’s iconic cleaning spray perfume of the same name – white peach, vanilla and rhubarb. Poached white peach and rhubarb compote add a fruity sweetness to the generous spread of vanilla white chocolate cream housed in a golden chocolate box resembling the catchy gold perfume bottle.
Sicilian Pistachio Apricot is composed of layers of apricot compote, Sicilian pistachio cream and apricot jelly. A chocolate Moschino zipper puller lies atop to reinforce brand presence.
Chef Richard’s very own version of Chocolate Pear Brownie highlights deliciously contrasting textures – crispy butter crumbles sandwiching moist chocolate cake infused with soft pear fillings. For the full menu, please refer to the appendix.
