LUXURY HOTEL CHAIN COLLABORATES WITH ARTIST TO CREATE IMMERSIVE CONFECTIONARY EXPERIENCE
Laila Gohar's Immersive Confectionary Experience at Prince de Galles Hotel in Paris is a Must-See
The Luxury Collection, part of Marriott Bonvoy's global portfolio of 31 extraordinary hotel brands, has announced a new collaboration with Global Explorer Laila Gohar to create a transformative cake experience at Prince de Galles, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Paris.
Gohar, known for her avant-garde culinary installations, has lent her Surrealist touch to a 10-foot-tall cake installation in the hotel's courtyard. The installation features a color palette of soft pink and green pastels and a design of intricately and expertly "piped" adornments, complete with a cherry on top. Thoughtfully created, all non-edible portions of the sculptures are made from repurposed and recycled materials.
In addition to the installation, Gohar has also created an edible version of her confection, featuring coconut with raspberry compote and pistachio buttercream. These custom cakes are available for purchase at Bar 19.20 with a glass of champagne until the end of 2023.
Gohar, who has traveled the globe as an internationally recognized artist working with food as her creative medium, is excited about the collaboration. "I am delighted to pay homage to French patisserie with this whimsical and imaginative project," she said. "Paris is a city that continuously inspires me, and it's been an absolute pleasure getting to collaborate with The Luxury Collection, at Prince de Galles. The property has become my home away from home in one of my favorite cities."
The Luxury Collection's Global Explorer program celebrates the vibrancy of the world's most enchanting destinations through the eyes of leading cultural voices. These personalities are united by a deep understanding of world cultures while identifying travel experiences in their own personal way.
"We are thrilled to collaborate with Laila Gohar as she brings her unique and artistic eye to The Luxury Collection and to celebrate the distinctive craft of French patisserie with us in Paris," said Philipp Weghmann, Vice President and global Brand Leader, The Luxury Collection. "We look forward to further cultivating our partnership with Laila by transporting elevated and unexpected, epicurean experiences to our guests around the world."
The limited-run Laila Gohar cake is available for purchase with a glass of champagne for €35 at Bar 19.20 at Prince de Galles, a Luxury Collection Hotel, located at 33 Avenue George V, 75008 Paris, France. The Laila Gohar x The Luxury Collection candle is available for purchase at the hotel and on gohar.world for $68 and can be shipped globally.#THE S MEDIA #Media Milenial #Laila Gohar #Prince de Galles Hotel #Paris #immersive confectionary experience #luxury hotel #art #food #travel
