Now, London’s fashion crowd and pastry connoisseurs alike can rejoice, because a branch of Prada’s Marchesi 1824 is opening on Mayfair’s Mount Street in April 2019.
Marchesi 1824, Milan
Pasticceria Marchesi was founded as a family-run bakery in Milan in 1824, then later acquired by the Prada Group. Today, you can find several Marchesi 1824 bakeries dotted around the city, but the London opening marks the first outpost for the bakery outside the Italian capital of fashion.
The April opening will provide a chance to enjoy Marchesi 1824’s glossy style, sugar-coated treats and Wes Anderson-esque mint interiors in London. The Mount Street bakery – which is a stone’s throw from 5-star hotel The Connaught – will serve favourite’s from the Milan menu, including pastel-coloured dragées, gianduja chocolates and sourdough panettone; all of which can be enjoyed with an Italian-style coffee from the on-site espresso bar. Shopping for gifts? Marchesi 1824 also sells a selection of gorgeously-wrapped biscuits and sweets, all fit to impress any well-heeled, sweet-toothed friend.
