Hakkasan partners with Lucy Choi: A limited-edition menu for London Fashion Week
One of the latest fine-dining and fashion collaborations has hit the refined streets of Mayfair at Hakkasan, Bruton Street. In honor of London’s most stylish week – LFW (London Fashion Week), this partnership with the iconic international dining brand has created a limited-edition menu with world-renowned shoe designers Jimmy Choo. Joining as one with Hakkasan’s sultry Eastern influences and Lucy Choi’s intricate craftsmanship and beautiful designs – the two luxury centric brands have created three new shoe designs which have resulted in the ‘Hakkasan x Lucy Choi Collection’.
Inspired by Hakkasan’s chic atmosphere, the three new shoe designs remain true to Lucy’s key brand pillars of comfort, craftsmanship, and character. The Mayfair design is a classic and red sleek high heel, available as a mid-heel or stiletto, reflecting the luxurious mood of the restaurant, famed for its chic clientele. Red is a colour synonymous with Hakkasan, a reflection of the iconic Chinese film ‘In the Mood for Love.’ Inspired by the other London location – in Hanway Place, in contrast, is a black flat style shoe with a velvet upper. The carefully embroidered tiger design mimics the delicate way in which dim sum is created, reflected in the vibrant colour of the stitching.
Of course, the Michelin starred Hakkasan group has pulled out the bag a menu to match. Available until 17th November at Hakkasan’s Hanway Place and Mayfair locations at £90, or £70 for the vegetarian menu alternative – this style inspired limited-edition Lucy Choi London menu includes a collection of Hakkasan’s most popular signature dishes. From a classic steaming dim sum selection, gorgeous crispy duck salad, tofu, aubergine and Japanese mushroom clay pots and a grilled Chilean seabass in honey, this menu also concludes with a unique dessert created in a shoebox design especially for the occasion. To accompany the menu, the Hakkasan bar team has created the ‘Choi Ling’ – a red, gin-based cocktail with rosé Champagne and rhubarb notes.
Since establishing in London in 2001, the Hakkasan brand has endeavored to serve discerning diners a modern interpretation of authentic Cantonese cuisine. Using the finest ingredients and expert traditional techniques to create timeless yet innovative signature dishes with a concept that revolves around a ‘brand first’ philosophy, the luxury lifestyle group focuses their efforts on service, design, and innovation that together, craft remarkable experiences for its guests.
Three lifestyle concepts make up the Hakkasan group. These include their restaurants, nightlife, and ‘day-life’ venues, which span across its world-class hospitality portfolio across 12 locations worldwide. This includes Ling Ling, Yauatcha, Sake no Hana, Casa Calavera, Herringbone and Searsucker, whilst under its nightlife alter-ego are Omnia, Jewel and 1Oak Nightclub and Omnia, Wet Republic and Liquid which lie within its ‘day-life’ concept.
For fashion aficionados, the shoe collection is available to purchase in the Lucy Choi London store or online at lucychoilondon.com. These exclusive styles range from £225 for the flat shoes to £245 for the stilettos, coinciding with the launch of an exclusive menu one day prior on 9th September at Hakkasan in Hakkasan Hanway Place and Hakkasan Mayfair.
