Ladurée in Joyce HK

you hear me right. Ladurée, the luxury French pastries brand, is opening a pop-up shop inside Joyce's Central boutique for a limited time until end of the festive season (i.e. end of dec). it's not only a pop-up store but a collaboration between Joyce, Ladurée and illustrator Cédric Rivrain. not the full product range is available but you can find the famous macaroons, tea, perfumed candles, home fragrances and shopping bags in store for us Ladurée fans.

note the shopping bag says Ladurée for Joyce

best macaroons in the world

raspberry is running out fast

this year marks the 40th year of Joyce, as part of the celebration, besides Ladurée pop-up store, there are many more collaborations going on between the multi-brand boutique and top designers and lifestyle brands. perfect gift ideas for Christmas!

Rivrain, the famed French illustrator has sketched for Christian Dior and Martine Sitbon, drawn Kate Moss, Sasha, Natasha Poly and his works shown in Numéro, Dazed and Confused. love the beautiful illustrations on the boxes but love even more when a collaboration is done right. Rivrain's drawings are realistic, almost photographic with much detail on the face, especially with intense eyes, yet they also have the raw, unfinished feel of a pencil sketch. l do adore the lovely works for Ladurée and Joyce, it's fresh and romantic, no question. but my true admiration goes to his art works. the faces are often covered in Band-Aids which makes it even more poignantly beautiful. 

piercing stare goes deep into one's soul
