The most delicious and tempting new arrival for S/S 2012? The famous French pastry brand Ladurée has joined with the Japanese colossal Albion Cosmetics, for the launch of Les Merveilleuses Ladurée, its first collection of cosmetics. The line includes blush, foundation, lip colour and powder puffs inspired by the pastel shades of the luxuriously tasy macaron pastries.
The first images have begun to make their way around the web, and the products look like something out of Marie Antoinette’s powder room, although they’re made to be slipped right into your handbag. The line was launched in Japanese stores in January , followed by Europe and the U.S. in Autumn of 2012.
Chef Pierre Troisgros has died at the age of 92. The legendary chef was one of the pioneers of nouvelle cuisine, and at his Maison Troisgros restaurant in Roanne, France, he was able to change French gastronomy.
