WHAT IS JAMES WEARING? Rotating Header Image

Ladurée Paris

James Andrew at Ladurée.

Another Parisian favorite is Ladurée – part tea salon, part pastry shop, part restaurant, and part chocolate shop and ice cream parlor, it’s the most perfect place to stop for breakfast, afternoon tea, lunch, or an anytime snack.


Since we were nearby Lauduree on the Champs-Elysees (designed by the brilliant Jacques Garcia) we stopped in to enjoy a bit of sweet decadence – Religieuse à la Rose, Thé Marie-Antoinette, Coupe Ladurée and macaroons Maguet – the sweetest perfection – I had to buy several of the prettiest pastel boxes of the Maguet Macaroons (lily of the valley) and chocolate truffles to bring along for later.

I’m sporting this super stylish perforated white leather jacket with contrast black and saddle leather details by Gucci, purple and white cotton gingham shirt by Turnbull and Asser, gray cotton jean cut pant by Maison Martin Margiela, patent leather belt with silver grommets and silver leather trim by Gucci,Tom Ford shoes are black and saddle leather loafer, glasses by Lanvin, my fragrance is Creed Windsor and my vintage Cartier tank watch is from Raj Tolaram.

    I really love this story. It seems you enjoyed having tea there, as it is one of the nicest spot in Paris!

  6. Madame B. says:

    Oh Dear James its been too long… there you are at Laduree — rumor has it they are coming to NY and I hope so! Anyhoo, due to some unforeseen glitches, My Future Husband Competition has been dismantled until further notice… but you are still my favorite!

    As to further business — my blog is turning blossoming into an interview site and as such I’d love to interview you in either my STYLE MAKER Column (Saturdays) or my MAN ABOUT TOWN Column (Tuesdays). You can check out my first interview to see what ya think….I interviewed Daniil Simkin, Ballet Dancer Extraordinaire and it was a ton of fun! Hope you are well!
