Find Out What Happens When Ladurée And Lanvin Team Up

lanvin01
We couldn't say it better ourselves when it comes to the mannequin in Lavin's Madison Avenue boutique's window: "Ooh, mmm, delicious." She's talking about the brand's limited-edition collaboration with famed French pastry house, Ladurée, a limited-edition box of 8 macarons in 3 colors, available right now... while supplies last, that is.

The flavor? Bubblegum, of course! Apparently, Lavin's designer, Alber Elbaz, approached Ladurée with the idea, based off his favorite childhood LD flave. Though Ladurée never actually made a Bubblegum treat, the power-that-be couldn't resist putting his faulty memory to the test, and the result is, to say the least, bubblicious. To top off the chewy confection, Elbaz's playful sketches of French mademoiselles decorate an exclusive box, which is almost guaranteed to be a collector's item. (Plus, don't forget to stop by the store to peep the one-of-a-kind window display — it's parfait for Instagramming.) We tried the new treats last week at Lavin's NYC cocktail party to launch the très chic team-up, and they're definitely unlike anything we've ever tasted. If you're looking for a bibelot for your kitchen, or you're just in the mood for some candy, these macarons are sure to make the Doublemint twins jealous — after all, they do double your fun.
