London Fashion Week inspires catwalk collection of cocktails


London Fashion Week Tailored cocktail

Bartenders have taken inspiration from the designers at this month’s London Fashion Week to create a special list of cocktails.

The Catwalk Cocktail Collection is available in the bar and the Garden Room of the five-star Athenaeum Hotel in London’s Mayfair throughout February.

They include the Citrus Catwalk, with a “citrus explosion” to mirror the young talent taking part in London Fashion Week, and the Tailored (pictured), inspired by classic designs with its bold use of colour and a floral finish.

The Brazil is inspired by Brazilian designers presenting their collections such as Lucas Nascimento and Barbara Casasola.

The list, created by the bar team, ties in with the fashion industry’s showcase of the autumn/winter 2015 fashions on catwalks in the capital from February 20 to 24.
