Rosewood Beijing to Host Delvaux Afternoon Tea and Pop-Up Store

March 28, 2018

Rosewood Beijing celebrates Delvaux, the world’s oldest fine leather luxury goods company, with the Maison’s latest Spring Summer 2018 collection at a pop-up store in the Lobby Shop and an exquisite afternoon tea at Bistrot B Lounge • Bar during the month of April.

Delvaux is a timeless brand founded in Belgium in 1829, a year before the kingdom’s independence and founding.  Delvaux was the first handbag maker to introduce seasonal collections, mirroring the practice of haute couture.  By 1875, Belgium had the highest density of rail networks in the world.  Visionary and pragmatic, the Brussels-based luggage maker foresaw the travel revolution approaching. La Maison Delvaux was granted the title of ‘Official Supplier to the Court’ by King Leopold II in 1883, a title la Maison still holds today.  Realizing that women would want to keep their precious belongings at hand during their travels, Delvaux filed its first patents for handbags in 1908.  With a visionary soul steeped in Belgian surrealism and an unconventional spirit, Delvaux bags are genuine works of art, perfectly in sync with Rosewood’s own disposition of staying timeless based on genuine and enduring local values.

With breathtaking designs, incandescent colors, dynamic black-and-whites and exotic accents, Delvaux sets sail for Africa this season.  Executive Pastry Chef Florian Couteau and his team have created savory and sweet delights for an afternoon tea that echoes Delvaux’s latest collection.  Their creations showcases orange and roasted pine nut marmalade, Madagascar whipped vanilla ganache, to reflect Delvaux’s Ethiopia animation, and 66% caraibe chocolate crèmeux, Himalayan salt chocolate sable to mirror the season’s Ethiopia silk twill.  Savory offerings also surprise and celebrate the delicious flavors of the season. They include cured hamachi, avocado, rye bread, Buddha hand and pumpernickel, ricotta, asparagus. 

Every afternoon tea set purchased will entitle guests to an exclusive gift prepared by Delvaux. The afternoon tea is available from 2:30 to 5:30 p.m. daily during the month of April for CNY 388 per set, the perfect refreshment after discovering the Delvaux’s Spring-Summer 2018 collection at the pop-up store in the Lobby Shop.
