If you didn’t already realise, we’re very excited for the NGV’s upcoming exhibition, The House of Dior: Seventy Years of Haute Couture.
It seems the team as Sofitel feel the same way. In celebration of the exhibition, Sofitel Melbourne On Collins will be serving up a series of couture-inspired cocktails.
Each drink has been created by master mixologist, Marc Dasan, and highlights a signature Dior design code.
Sofitel’s Atrium Bar will serve up the Code of Conduct Cocktails on Thursday, Friday and Saturdays from September 1 to November 4.
Check out the four drinks below.
Remy Martin VSOP, Tanqueray Gin, Earl Grey syrup and dash of Pernod and grapefruit bitters served in a glass perfume bottle with a smoked fumed glass.
