Delicious French desserts and fabulous French clothing only begin to describe the Parisian lifestyle; with the Lanvin x Laduree collaboration, one can live fashionably while indulging in scrumptious patisseries. The covetable French design house decided to collaborate with one of the longest-standing French pastry shops for a limited edition box set of eight mouth-watering macaroons.

The original macaroon was developed by the house of Laduree and remains the icon behind the macaroon phenomena. Each box of eight will set you back $28, but the box is enough of a keepsake for the high price. Coming in three different colors, each macaroon tastes like bubblegum. Lanvin designer Alber Elbaz pitched the idea to Laduree as they have never had a bubblegum flavor before. Elbaz designed the boxes with beautiful stick-figured women, which is a classic of his.
