|They're mine, all mine|
Maybe I've been hard-wired to squeal at the sight of macarons; beauty editors are, after all, gifted with more than they can shake a stick at. Still, they remain - to my mind at least - the most luxurious, high-days and holidays treat. This limited edition Ladurée/Matthew Williamson collaboration - to coincide with London Fashion Week - is the ultimate in gourmande glamour. Printed with Williamson's iconic, hand-illustrated butterfly wing design, the coffret (could there be a chicer word for gift box?), holds 8 delish macarons available in dreamy flavours such as; salted caramel, blackcurrant violet, black forest and Madagascar chocolate. At £14.10 for 8 (eek!), I intend to savour them with Earl Grey tea, alone and in absolute silence. The husband gets After Eights.
Ladurée can be found at: Burlington Arcade, Covent Garden and Harrods. http://www.laduree.fr/en/scene
