Prêt-à-Portea

The opening of this highly anticipated exhibition at the Victoria & Albert Museum has inspired the luxury hotel to include of two of McQueen's most iconic designs in its Prêt-à-Portea.

Guests will be treated to the designer's famous 'armadillo' shoes in the form of a heeled chocolate biscuit with cream icing and sparkles. The second addition takes the shape of the feather Butterfly Hat, created by Philip Treacy for Alexander McQueen's Spring/Summer Collection in 2008, made with dark chocolate mousse set on a sablé breton glazed with a chocolate miroir and red sugar butterflies. Yum.
