If you've been living under a rock for the past ten years, then you may not have realized that French luxury dessert maker Ladurée has been the much anticipated opening on Miami Beach's Lincoln Road. Well, my fellow macaron lovers, it's finally open! Established in 1862, the iconic sweets maker houses only the most delicious macarons known to man (or woman).
Ladurée also houses store locations in Japan, Monoco, Switzerland, Brazil, Australia, New York, Ireland, Hong Kong, to name a few. The brand recently collaborated with jewelry designer Marie-Hélène de Taillac in developing sets of fashion macarons and Marie-Hélène de Taillac-inspired window installations through various stores.
Ladurée is also well-known for its cameo appearance in the film Marie Antoinette (the teal macaron is named after the film), CW's Gossip Girl, and collaborations with Christian Louboutin and Marni.
After being taken over by the PAUL bakery chain, Ladurée developed into a global chain of pastry shops and/or tea rooms with the best tasting macarons in the world. Although, the macarons from their Madison Avenue location in New York City seem to taste better than Ladurée's Miami bakery.
What I'm rocking:
