Something Different: Tsumori Chisato for Ladurée

We can’t tell if this is sugar or kawaii overload. Ladurée, French makers of luxury cakes with a new store in Manhattan, has joined forces with Japanese designer Tsumori Chisato, renowned for her unabashed playfulness, to create these pink macaroons inspired by Japan’s famed cherry blossom trees. They’re calling the flavor, which was concocted by Vincent Lemains under the artistic direction of Chisato, “phantasmagorical” and we believe them. Completing the collaboration is a scented candle—a first for Ladurée, who’ve previously teamed up with John Galliano, Christian Louboutin, and Marni—again infused with the essence of cherry blossom. Can this please spell the end of the almighty cupcake?
