Perrier-Jouët and The Mandrake hotel’s #artofthewild collaboration offers an enchanting escapade from our urban jungle.
Dashing through our vast metropolis, London isn’t exactly the expected site for foraging trips. Yes our city wilderness is alive with roaring creatures, namely towering cranes, rippled pavements and everyday explosions for the imagination. Yet at the end of a 9-5, our urban jungle doesn’t exactly signpost us to botanical paradise.
But what if our concrete paths gave way to a whimsical world? A space for noise and chaos to be replaced by artistic interpretations of nature? It’s time to be enveloped by Perrier-Jouët’s collaboration with the Mandrake Hotel.
Summer may have sunken out of sight, but the magic of alfresco secrets are still there to be discovered by eyes that search. In this two week collaboration, boutique Fitzrovia hotel The Mandrake is opening its private terrace for wanderers and wonderers to seek out a whirl of unearthly delights.
Amongst a sanctum of palm trees, jasmine flowers, hanging passionflowers and glass towers, sensuous stories can be experienced through a fortnight-long event series. Think champagne tastings, champagne paired brunch, lunch and dinners, floristry masterclasses and artful installations running from 18th October to 3rd November.
Perrier-Jouët’s #Artofthewild takes design inspiration from a hybrid mix of Art Nouveau partnered with the neon glow of light installation from artist collaboration, Luftwerk. The result? An otherworldly sphere where wild nature enjoys luminous dimensions.
Amongst the flora and fauna, Perrier-Jouët expert, Jonny Fizz is on-hand to lead tastebuds through a chimeric champagne trail. In this hidden realm, curious foragers are certain to discover bubbles beyond our everyday reality.
