Chloe has taken over the Wonder Room At Selfridges with a retrospective of their most memorable fashion designs to celebrate their 60th anniversary. Founded in 1952 by Gaby Aghion, Chloe has long been associated with originality, romanticism and iconic creativity. This was the perfect opportunity for me to escape the mad world of bunnies and eggs production and delve into a match made in heaven. And no, I was not after a free handbag although i would never refuse a Chloe Paddington bag.
After a few brainstorming sessions with Chloe head office in Paris (thankfully I speak French fluently), we came up with the idea of featuring the "Ananas", a bright and cheerful pineapple designed by Stella McCartney for Chloe in 2001. This design was reproduced with edible food colors onto a dark chocolate think disc oozing with a spiced pineapple coulis made from pineapple puree and 4 spices (ginger, clove, nutmeg and cinnamon) which was inspired by a dessert I had in a restaurant about a decade ago. My memory for sweet things is infallible even though I cant remember my to-do list on a daily basis.
Our famous liquid salted caramel encased in a milk chocolate disc was printed with the collaboration of the two brands in edible golden letters. Personally I prefer our liquid salted caramel as a sauce rather than encased in chocolate, poured over ice cream, fruits, yogurt, pancakes, waffles or anything I can get my hands on. It transforms any mundane dessert into a sweet feast worthy ofNigella Lawson (who is a fan).
Our super chic collaborative chocolates, as tweeted by Victoria Beckham, are available only at Selfridges (London, Birmingham, Manchester Trafford and online) for a limited edition.
I thoroughly recommend a visit to Selfridges Wonder Room which would not be complete without swinging by Artisan to stock on some chocolate goodies.
Have a super chic chocolate filled week
