Recently, the editor of World Bride Magazine, Myrdith visited London as part of her tour of
Europe and we took a day to dive into the world of luxury with a visit to Prada Café and
Piaget Jewellery Store in Harrods. This delightful outing offered both an indulgent escape
and wedding day inspiration.
The Prada Café stands as a beacon of refined style, nestled within the iconic walls of
Harrods. Previous occupiers of that particular space included Laduree and the Dior Café, so
Prada had to up the ante. The café design is an ode to the timeless elegance of Prada,
showcasing the brand’s signature black and white checked floor paired with Marchesi 1824
soft green. The juxtaposition creates a warm yet sophisticated atmosphere, setting the
stage for a delightful afternoon.
Adding to the sensory feast was a nicely curated Italian menu of food and wines that
catered to our palates. We chose a delectable meal of veal and burrata. The beautifully
presented veal was expertly cooked, tender and flavourful, while the creamy burrata
offered a fresh and delicate balance to the meal. What truly stood out was the attention to
detail; Prada’s branding graced the silverware, glasses, and china, a testament to the
brand’s commitment to consistent luxury branding.
The knowledgeable and attentive staff ensured our culinary experience was seamless and
enjoyable, and they were on hand to assist a number of customers when it came to taking

well-represented in our dessert selection. Our desserts were served as rounded squares of
glossy artistry, with each featuring a Prada logo. I had the lemon cake and Myrdith the rich
and divine hazelnut and chocolate cake. Each bite was a joy, although as a lover of lemon, I
could have done with a more intense lemon flavour.
After our leisurely meal, we drifted towards the Piaget Jewellery Store, a brand that
epitomizes timeless elegance and craftsmanship. The staff provided exceptional service,
assisting us in exploring the stunning collection of bridal jewellery. Their knowledge and
patience in sharing the story of each piece created a shopping experience as personal as it
We were particularly captivated by the ‘Possession’ collection, a series of intricately
designed pieces symbolizing the eternal bond of love, perfect for a wedding. The selection
of diamond engagement rings, delicate gold necklaces, and dazzling earrings offered a
variety of unique pieces to choose from for the wedding day or as thoughtful bridesmaids’
The Prada Café’s unique culinary experience combined with Piaget’s breath taking bridal
collection offers a bridal outing that is a cut above the rest. This pairing is a perfect
representation of the elegance and indulgence every bride deserves during her wedding
journey as the memories of this day will stay, long after the wedding bells chime.
