9 Aug 2021, Hong Kong SAR, China – Contemporary rooftop restaurant Popinjays works in collaboration with Givenchy to embrace the spirit of freedom and carefree exuberance with the Summer in Pink Afternoon Tea, available from 5 August to 30 September 2021.
Pink, in Givenchy’s haute couture creations and makeup range, is more than femininity, but also synonymous with freedom, audacity and love of life. The brand’s latest launches, including the Rose Perfecto Lip Balm, Prisme Libre Blush and Irresistible Eau de Toilette, are all elegantly accented with soft pink hues to celebrate the beauty of inner glow and natural radiance. To celebrate the Qixi Festival of Love, Givenchy presents an exclusive “LOVE” limited edition of its iconic lipstick Le Rouge N°37 and Blossom Compact Cream. Like a true ode to love, the case is presented for the occasion in a powdery pink shade.
As its name suggests, Summer in Pink afternoon tea adopts a pink theme in an exquisite array of savoury and sweet treats to honour the avant-grade elegance of Givenchy. Chef de Cuisine Alexandre Viriot has created a range of flavorful light bites loaded with refreshing summer ingredients. Tomato Tart and Brown Crab is a palate-pleasing treat for all – the appetising tomato salsa complements the mild sweetness of crab meat and offers an interesting contrast of texture in every bite.
Stylishly presented, the rich and enticing Norwegian Smoked Salmon Toast is balanced with the crisp and refreshing cucumber shreds and buttery egg salad.
The adorable selection of desserts is the brainchild of Pastry Chef Arnaud Labbe. Housed in an elegant dessert glass, the White Peach and Verbena Verrine delights aficionados with the heavenly combination of peach dices, airy peach mousse and gelée.
Infused with summer fruits to enrich the taste profile and tone down the richness, Raspberry Financier is the best companion to a cup of fine hot tea or coffee.
Celebrating this collaboration, Summer in Pink afternoon tea guests will receive an exclusive Givenchy Pink gift set that consists of a mini Rose Perfecto lipstick, L’Intemporel Blossom Mask 7ml, as well as Irresistible EDP 1ml. Givenchy Pink gift set will be given per customer while supplies last.
