|Alber Elbaz's sketches for Sevva|
In Hong Kong recently, living a Travelife, I had a wonderful afternoon tea at Sevva, that chic restaurant/ cafe/ bar on top of Prince's Building in Central.
Sevva owner and creative director Bonnae Gokson indulged her passion for fashion and teamed up with one of her favourite luxury fashion brands LANVIN to present a special Parisian-inspired ‘designer afternoon tea.’

HIGH TEA AND HIGH FASHION
Light and delicate sponge cakes and finger rolls meet French haute couture at this chic rendezvous atop Prince’s Building in Central.
DESIGNER AFTERNOON TEA
The ‘designer afternoon tea’ is the result of a creative collaboration between SEVVA’s stylish founder Bonnae Gokson and Alber Elbaz, Artistic Director of French fashion house LANVIN.
Alber Elbaz has been awarded Chevalier of the Legion d’ Honneur – France and named one of Time Magazine’s 100 Most Influential People in The World.
Known for his love of sketching, Alber Elbaz’s spectacular sketches feature on the afternoon tea set’s place mat and sandwich roll wrap to adorn the sweet collaboration.
Three delectable tiers of 16 different treats from SEVVA are presented in the style and elegance of an haute couture collection – complete with LANVIN designer labels in edible sugar art.
The Parisian-inspired afternoon tea features a wide variety of utterly delectable sweet treats, including snowflake coconut chiffon sponge, French vanilla crème and raspberry, rose petal jam & crème Anglaise eclair, to flower power espresso cheesecake, pineapple crème gâteaux, ‘Sweetheart Candy Lollipop’ and SEVVA’s signature original caramel crunch cake.

She then added: "Now, he sketches LANVIN Loves SEVVA and I’m thrilled about that!"
