Marni Does Macaroons-------
No matter how much you think that fashion folk eat or don’t, one thing is for sure: They love a macaroon. Loïc Prigent famously captured Marc Jacobs basing Louis Vuitton’s Polka Dot Fleurs handbag on them. Monique Lhuillier based an entire collection on Ladurée’s pastels. And I’ve witnessed several instances of the sandwiched meringue sweets being pounced on by chicsters when they’ve been brought out at an event. Marni is the latest label to join in on the patisserie party, collaborating with Ladurée on a limited-edition box, patterned with polka dots and a little flower brooch, filled with gold-covered chocolate macaroons. Or for the Marni fan who can’t live without color—we’re guessing it’s a sizable group—there’s the option of creating a customized selection of flavors. They come in boxes of eight or 18 and go on sale starting December 1 at Ladurée outposts in Paris, London, Tokyo, Dublin, and Zurich.
