As part of a global Vogue x Sofitel collaboration featuring immersive festivals, creative activations, fashion collaborations and beauty programmes, Sofitel Singapore City Centre and Vogue Singapore jointly present Les Jardin du Sofitel—a botanical afternoon tea set inspired by the glamour of haute couture and the elegance of spring fashion trends. Launching just in time for Valentine’s Day and running through International Women’s Day, it sees the hotel’s lobby bar transform into an elegant springtime scene veiled with pastel-hued blooms, courtesy of luxury floral design studio The Floral Atelier. Step into a botanical wonderland, where flowers curve over arches and line the walls.
Available from 2pm to 5pm daily, the botanical afternoon tea brings with it a lavish spread of sweets and savouries with highlights such as the Sliced Squid Salad with Pickled Chayote and Tomato Muscat Foam, and the Saint Honoré Praline. Adorned with edible flowers for a final flourish, the exquisite creations are accompanied by either barista-style coffee or your choice from 18 premium blends of TWG tea. With every set ordered, guests will also receive two limited edition Vogue tote bags.
In celebration of Valentine’s Day and International Women’s Day, the afternoon tea is created in support of the Vogue Singapore Foundation—a fundraising initiative that strives to nurture regional talent, provide access to creative education and elevate the ASEAN fashion industry—as well as three initiatives from United Women Singapore. The first, the Girls2Pioneers STEM programme, aims to narrow the gender equality gap through education. Meanwhile, the UWS Boys Empowered programme nurtures boys to prevent gender-based violence while the GenSafe Workplaces programme assists organisations in supporting employees impacted by domestic violence and abuse.
Aside from the high tea set, an exclusive menu of all-day à la carte specialties awaits, including a delectable Pickled Tomato with Egglant Caviar and Pesto Cream and a stunning Pavlova with Citrus Coulis and Exotic Fruits. Also look forward to fresh bakes such as the velvety Honey Cheesecake and a crisp Raspberry Macaron, along with a delightful selection of botanical cocktails and mocktails. Infused with floral notes, the elegant tipples will bring your meal to a close on a sweet note reminiscent of springtime’s fresh vibrance.
Les Jardin du Sofitel will run from 13 February to 9 April 2023.
