28 September 2018, Chongqing – Niccolo Chongqing is pleased to announce “Happy Times”, a special fall / winter collaboration themed afternoon tea with well-known American lifestyle brand, Tory Burch, at Niccolo’s Tea Lounge from 1st to 31st October 2018. Since its launch on 8 September last year, Niccolo positioned itself as a contemporary chic sky hotel at the fashionable IFS address, becoming a prestigious destination for global travellers and press in the city. The new partnership with Tory Burch aims to bring more sophisticated and modern lifestyle experiences to Chongqing.
Named after its "Happy Times" collection, the Tory Burch design team gives botanicals more space, carrying over five colours in silk and satin burnout dresses with scarf hems, tops and totes. Mixed botanicals with classic tailoring and various comfortable materials give it a modern and more romantic aesthetic. The name "Happy Times" inspired by the book written by American socialite Lee Radziwill, a book documenting happy memories that Lee, the former first lady Jacqueline Kennedy’s sister, spent with her family during many of historical moment.
The Niccolo x Tory Burch afternoon tea will be presented in the form of a traditional three-tiered English afternoon tea. The first two layers use fresh fruit and nut-flavored pastries in bright colours to reflect the natural and cheerful character of this season’s Tory Burch fall / winter collection, in which the Chestnut Passion Fruit Hazelnut Cake and Tropical Fruit Cake baked and branded are “Happy Times”, making for a delightful highlight. The third tier displays four cold canapés using fresh vegetables and seafood, including Goat’s Cheese Mousse, Truffle Asparagus, Seared Ahi Tuna and Mango Shrimp Tartlets. This joyful tea set perfectly interprets Tory Burch’s "Happy Times" theme through design, visual and taste buds crafted by Niccolo’s talented pastry chefs.
Guests enjoying the stylish creation can do so from 300 metres above Chongqing, overlooking panoramic mountain and river views turning to sparkling dusk and evening views. An elevator directly accessing the Tory Burch shop before or after tea, will be an ideal complement to round off the day and select the new season's favourite.
