Laduree and Uniqlo Team For a Sweet Cause

While visiting New York City and walking down the famed 5th Ave near Tiffany’s, I stumbled into Uniqlo and became  delighted when I noticed a sweet collaboration between Laduree and Uniqlo.

Laduree, is the iconic French Macaron bakery which opened in 1862, and Uniqlo, is the Japanese clothing company known for their special puffer coats with built-in heat technology, and both brands are favorites of mine since discovering Uniqlo near the Opera House in Paris on a recent trip and Laduree as a child on a early trip to France.

The details are the brands have collaborated for a special line of T-shirts to benefit IVY, a non-profit foundation that helps children affected by Japan’s major 2011 earthquake.

The Uniqlo store on Fifth Ave, is charmingly decorated with images of the Mademoiselle Fifi, the adorable Laduree doggie and brand mascot, macarons in pastel shades, the Eiffel Tower, and ice-cream scoops.

Here I am modeling the “pink cat” shirt with adorable boyfriend Andres.

LaudreeWho can resist dancing Macarons?

I will definitely be wearing this shirt under a blazer with Jeans.

The collection is available in women’s and children’s sizes with shirts retailing between $12.9o and $19.90.

Even the T-Shirt Tag is a beautiful work of art and one that can be enjoyed “calorie-free.”
