Ladurée- Burlington Arcade










For my A Level fashion project I have decided to look at Marie Antoinette and 18th Century French style. This suits me very well as the clothes from the era are beautiful and I must admit to an obsession with the chairs! Inspired by the copious amounts of Ladurée macaroons used in Sofia Coppola's 2006 film 'Marie Antoinette' I decided to visit the Paris pâtisserie's London stores at Harrods and the Burlington Arcade. These photos were taken at the latter and I left the store with a bag of treats- for educational purposes obviously.

The macaroons - they look just like the ones I was (slightly and in a non-stalkerish way obv) addicted too at the london thing hehe. xxx
