Valentino Cafe Popup at Harrods

Valentino and Harrods Christmas Collaboration

In celebration of the holiday season, Maison Valentino has joined forces with renowned luxury department store Harrods. As the festive period draws near, these prestigious brands are preparing to provide an unparalleled shopping experience together.

The brands will offer a diverse range of in-store spaces and boutiques, giving shoppers a chance to peruse an extensive selection of exquisite items for the holiday season.

Additionally, the renowned establishment, along with its stunning nine-meter Christmas tree from Harrods, has been adorned with Valentino Pink PP decor.

Following their successful collaboration with Dior during last year's holiday season, Harrods has once again teamed up with a luxury fashion house for 2023 - this time with Maison Valentino. Through previous collaborations on in-store projects, the Italian brand has established a strong relationship with the renowned Knightsbridge retailer.

Last September, Valentino debuted a temporary location at the department store, and now it will make a comeback in mid-December on a bigger level. Boasting an expansive 500 square meters, a popup boutique for women's ready-to-wear will be revealed. The design of the space will draw inspiration from architectural styles that hark back to the Maison's Roman roots.

Valentino Pop up Cafe at Harrods

I visited the Valentino pop up Cafe outside Harrods in the first few days of opening, where a mini pink truck, with hot pink parasol protects those lucky enough to grab a seat from the rain. 

With matching hot pink blankets and the deepest shade of the most vibrant pink hot chocolate I've ever seen. The real star of the show is however the giant Christmas tree. Adorned in a giant Valentino logo with huge pink baubles.

Here at the Valentino cafe you can enjoy a classic apple crumble with vanilla custard. Or a mango and coconut crumble with vanilla custard. You can also add some piped marshmallow topping or some Valentino pink PP whipped cream, which is a delicious thick cream in a vibrant shade of Pink.

To drink, your options are hot chocolate in salted caramel, mint hot chocolate, Ruby hot chocolate or milk hot chocolate flavours - in either a regular or large size and you can add the Valentino pink PP hot chocolate cream to any of the hot chocolate's on sale. 

If you fancy something cold, their are a variety of bubble milk teas and fruity bubble tea. Choose from original milk tea, raspberry milk tea, chocolate milk, taro or cherry. Honey peach. Lychee, mango, melon or passion fruit. With Malaysian pulled tea and Malaysian pulled coffee also available.

I really enjoyed my Valentino pink whipped cream hot chocolate, which has the thickest layer of whipped cream that I've ever enjoyed! It was really delicious with a nice hot temperature and good consistency drinking chocolate. It's not too sweet or too savoury in my opinion. Large was quite filling. Small is really quite small in size.

Pink Christmas Tree
Harrods nine meter tall Christmas tree is decked in Valentino pink PP decor directly in front of the mini pop up Cafe, which looks stunning day or night. I think I'll head back to try something else from the cafe menu, but when it's darker, so I can see the tree lit up at night in person. 

What I wore 

My outfit of the day was brown with a touch of hot pink matching the Valentino pink surroundings. A shaggy brown fur coat teamed with brown suit pants. Casual bold pink trainers and matching pink tote bag.
