Who ever said that gals working in fashion were not also gourmets? Certainly not Victoria Beckham and Charlotte Olympia. For the new Fall season, the two English designers are each signing a foodie collab. Which one will you choose?
Charlotte Olympia x Ladurée
Collectors objects on the horizon. This season, Charlotte Olympia Dellal, the designer of shoes and accessories, is featuring her label at Ladurée. And actually with her pedigree, this British gal is a pro when it comes to afternoon tea. Result, a superb setting in the shape of leopard’s mouth holding 8 exclusive chocolate and Earl Grey tea macaroons. And a box of loose leaf tea, a special mix of black teas (India and China) with flavours of bergamot, almond and chocolate, along with the feline and its iconic spider web. Once empty, they can be transformed into jewellery boxes. So chic.
Box of 8 macaroons €21.50. Box of loose leaf tea €30. Available starting the 29th of August 2018. More info on www.laduree.fr
Victoria Beckham x Pierre Marcolini
It certainly seeps Posh Spice always has a new trick up her sleeve. To celebrate the 10 years of her couture house (this certainly does not make us feel any younger), Victoria Beckham has asked Pierre Marcolini to create for her a box of... chocolates. A whimsy immediately granted. The trendy Belgian chocolatier imagined a very exclusive and highly streamlined pink box, in which one finds his signature heart featured in four flavours (nutcracker, salty butter caramel, rose and passion fruit, yuzu). Now the questions is whether these 16 delights will finally bring back a smile on the face of the most pouting Spice Girl. Happy Birthday Vic’ !
Box of 16 hearts, €35. Available in Pierre Marcolini boutiques around the world and in the Victoria Beckham Dover Street pop-up store, starting Thursday the 4th of October 2018. More info on www.marcolini.com
