January’s gone (at last), February’s here and that can only mean that London Fashion Week is on its way!
In celebration of LFW and the new Somerset House exhibition Isabella Blows : Fashion Galore! luxury hotel One Aldwych and iconic fragrance Fracas have joined forces to create a dramatic floral installation.
Inspired by the scent of Fracas, talented florist Mark Siredzuk has created an explosion of white magnolia twigs and masses of white amaryllis, resting on towering perspex plinths with trailing white asparagus ferns and pink roses. The arrangement is surrounded by a curtain of black Fracas bottles suspended by thin bamboo poles.
On display between the 12th and 25th of February the arrangement goes perfectly with a cocktail in the hotel's effortlessly chic Lobby Bar. With a continuing nod to the iconic scent, this heady cocktail is a sensuous combination of Martin Miller’s Gin with rose liquer, jasmine syrup, lemon and fresh muddled grapes, shaken and strained into a black frosted glass before being topped with bergamot foam and rose petal garnish.

Priced at £12.50 each you can also combine the cocktail with an exhibition ticket for £22.50
