To eat -

Do we even need to say more?! Food glorious food. Steaming hot pies from Pieminster, fluffy Belgian waffles covered in spiced mulled wine apples from Panache. L’Ombrello will be there, spinning their delicious pizzas with oozing cheese and steaming toppings… Should we go on? No matter what your dietary needs are, rest assured there’ll be gluten free, vegetarian and vegan options galore and plenty of festive treats to keep you full.

To drink - 

Aprés ski bar? Yes. Please. 

Snuggle up around open log fires whilst you sip on cocktails, mulled wine and local craft beers. When you need a break from all of the shopping and eating, this is the place to go! Relax, take a breath and enjoy a moment of magic with every sip.

The Wonderland Collective Sponsors...

We were absolutely honoured to be proud sponsors of Kolchagov Barba's Autumn/Winter 2018 - "ME" Collection as part of London Fashion Week on the 16th February.

This was our 3rd year sponsoring the event and it has been amazing to follow Svetoslav Kolchagov and Emilio Barba on their journey to success. 

Now being featured in Vogue, it is clear we are not the only ones who can see the designers talent.

This season's collection focused on the empowerment of women, standing together for their beliefs and rights without detriment to their individuality, which sees each woman free to embrace her unique identity and individuality. You can see this theme shining through in their designs below.

We can't wait for the next show, until next time.
