Designer cocktails at Bloomsbury Street Hotel for London Collections
To celebrate London Collections: Men, one London hotel has teamed up with six emerging men’s fashion stars to create a bespoke designer cocktail menu for the month of January.
The Radisson Blu Edwardian Bloomsbury Street, the official hotel of London Collections: Men, has collaborated with Agi and Sam, whose collection for Topman debuted this year, shirting designer Martine Rose who has recently launched a collection with Browns and Joseph Turvey, who has just been snapped up by River Island to create an exclusive range.
The other designers are Baartmans & Siegel, Craig Green and Alan Taylor all of whom are presenting their latest collections at the three-day men’s fashion event.
Hasnain Alloo, general manager at Radisson Blu Edwardian Bloomsbury Street, said: “Being involved in London Collections: Men allows us to help showcase some of the city’s emerging young talent and provide them new vehicles to showcase their creativity.
“Our mixologists worked with the designers to teach them the basics of cocktail-making and help inspire them to craft their own creations. The results are impressive and we’re sure they’ll be a firm fixture on any London fashionista’s calendar.”
Matthew Drinkwater, Head of the Fashion Innovation Agency, which helped to bring about the collaboration, said: "The partnership with The Bloomsbury Street Hotel will enable the most exciting designer names in London to showcase their collections in an innovative and inspiring way.
