Fashion: Laduree and Emilio Pucci

Emilio Pucci and Ladurée create the most stylish confectionary
French patisserie Ladurée has partnered up with Italian fashion mogul Emilio Pucci to create a box of the designer bakery’s iconic macarons all in the name of food and fashion.

Both artists in their own right the Ladurée brand is recognised for its divine flavours, elegant imagery, nostalgic atmosphere and of course the delightful macaron. Started up in the 1800s by miller Louis Ernest Ladurée, the patisserie became a chain when taken over by The Groupe Holder in 1993 and has since found success across the world with produce being sold in London, Miami and Sydney.
Ladurée and Pucci first revealed their charming box of goods at Milan Fashion Week back in February; the fashion power house of Emilio Pucci was more than happy to have their home country as place for the unveiling; now as we roll into Spring the limited edition cases of confection could be yours.
Available in two colours and two different styles the designs are unmistakably Pucci, the iconic Pucci print takes centre stage with the enchanting geometric motif and vibrant shades a visual delight.

There is a selection to choose from in two colour options; a blend of hot pink, coral and orange or cool blue, white and turquoise both of which are filled with eight scrumptious macarons. Once you have picked your colour choice you can select either the Capri box, Capri box and shopping bag or even the luxury box covered in Pucci silk, all of which you can order online.
Yann Menguy, the pastry chef for the Parisian tea room has fashioned macarons with flavours of lemon and rose creating not only a delicious new taste but also an aesthetically pleasing dessert that sandwiches together a vibrant yellow and perfect pink with a fine layer of ganache.
A captivating combination of high end fashion and lavish ingredients create an opulent gift for somebody else, treat for yourself or dinner party sweet.

Fashion: A List Stars Love The Ear Cuff

A List Stars Love The Ear Cuff
The latest fashion trend to take over the world of celebrities is the ear cuff, from Victoria’s Secret angel Miranda Kerr to British actress Emma Watson; female stars everywhere are adding some punk to their outfits with the embellished ear piece.



This piece of jewellery comes in many different styles, colours, shapes and sizes and has been used by our favourite celebrities to add some quirk to their fashion. Unlike many celebrity trends that are hard to obtain or perhaps too expensive, the ear cuff is an affordable and stylish accessory. Whether you want to add some edge to a simple outfit, or let your inner rock goddess shine through, an ear cuff is the perfect choice.
  1. River Island, £15, this funky ear cuff from River Island is the boldest of the five and not for the faint of heart. Although it’s eye-catching and clearly punk-inspired the iridescent colour with pink undertones offers a girly edge 
  2.  Forever 21, £3, these delicate ear pieces are ideal for a chicer look that would be perfect for the work to bar transition. Small but still stylish and showing that the ear-cuff trend isn’t all about spikes and heavy duty ear pieces. 
  3.  Red Herring, £8, this duo of turquoise and silver is a pretty two piece set that you can switch up depending on your mood; the turquoise adds some colour and coolness whereas the silver keeps it elegant and glam.
  4.  Topshop, £8.50, channel your inner Cara Delevingne with this monochrome cuff, a great choice if you want to punk things up but not distract from your stylish outfit.
  5.  Miss Selfridge, £6.50, the gold and diamante chain piece is rather similar to that which Lily Collins recently wore, unlike the others where the embellished cuff is the statement this is all about the draped chain.
