Zuhair Murad's creation, FW2010-2011
November 18, 2010
Paris may be known as the City of Light, but in our little blackbook, it might as well be the City of Pastry and all things delectable. Even the devout Atkins-tribe will swoon over a perfectly buttery pain au chocolat or those very famous Laduree macarons. Point is, only in Paris will you find a restaurant, the renowned Cafe de la Paix, collaborating with fashion designers on calorie laden desserts for five years running. After a collaboration with Zuhair Muhad for Fall-Winter 2010-2011 (available until January 15, 2011), the cafe has announced next year’s sweet tooth designers; Brazil’s own enfant terrible Alexandre Herchcovitch (who is planning a French bridgadier lined with Brazilian truffles), Valentin Yudashkin, Manish Arora (tons of metallic and sequins?) and Frankie Xie will all try their hand at a “couture” patisserie. C’est la bonne vie, n’est-ce pas?
