I have heard nothing but good things about the macarons and the stores are so beautifully decorated. Laduree has become one of the most iconic bakeries in the world. With their delicious treats and superb decor, Laduree is in a class by itself.
Not only does Laduree have its beautiful pastries but there is also a makeup collection that was created in 2012 that was inspired by the colorful macarons. In February 2014 jewelry designer Marie-Helene De Taillac collaborated with Laduree to create a beautiful necklace inspired by the delicate macarons.
Laduree has been featured in movies and has collaborated with fashion designers such as Christian Louboutin. They sell keychains, makeup, totes, scarves, candles and books (see here). I purchased a Laduree tote this past summer after seeing it on Pinterest. I also ordered the Laduree: Decoration and Inspiration book this past December.
And finally there are also the beautiful tea salons at Laduree. The salons are decorated in 18th and 19th century decor. With the pastel colors, marble floors and gold accents, the tea salons offer an ambiance of elegance. You can have breakfast, lunch and dinner at the salons. Unfortunately, the only country in the US that has Laduree is New York. Needless, to say once my husband and I make a second trip, I will be going! Below are some photos from Laduree, enjoy!
