The legendary wedding dress designer Vera Wang knows perfectly well how to work with delicate materials. So it’s no surprise the designer teamed up with another iconic high-end brand best known for its extremely photogenic macarons, Ladurée, to create her most delicate and sophisticated products yet – a coconut creme chantilly macaron and a wedding cake.
So what do the Vera Wang desserts taste like? According to the designer, the key ingredient is coconut. “Coconut is one of my favourite flavours in any context. It always tastes delicate, yet complex, even when mixed with other flavours, even scents!” said Vera Wang in an interview with Vogue.
The flavours were also inspired by Wang’s favourite French dessert meringue glacé and mango. “A coconut chantilly macaron and a mango-flavoured coconut were heaven at first bite for me,” said the designer.
According to Wang, she treated the design of the iconic sweets, as she would a wedding dress, paying equal attention to the taste and the style of the desserts. So, not only her delicate treats taste like heaven, but also they reflect her signature chic and minimalistic modern style.
As you’ve probably already guessed, the collaboration titled Vera Wang Pour Ladurée is limited edition, which means it won’t be that easy to taste the highly-anticipated dessert. The macarons come in elegant black packages decorated with silver detailing and cost $24 per 6 pieces.
