Paris is famous for many things; there are cafés, fine restaurants, lots of gothic architecture and macaroons! These delightful sweet meringue-based confectioneries are now famous around the world because of the world-famous French patisserie called Laduree.
What Laduree has done is given the macaroon an aesthetic appeal and many people when they see one for the first time are unsure of what to do. “Do I wear these little jewels are eat them?” That’s a typical dilemma and one look at macaroons made by Laduree show you why. Wrapped in some of the most eye-popping and soul-enchanting pastel colours, no two macaroons are ever alike. From baby pink to minty green, one look at Laduree macaroons will make you fall hopelessly in love visually.
This brings us to the Kashmir Seasons’ spring collection, for it is this beautiful and timeless array of pastel colors that inspired the company’s founder to create designs in the colors that you see in our main online store. The founder, on one of his many visits to Paris became inspired after a casual visit to the Laduree patisserie. While inside, the idea of merging the ancient and timeless art of Kashmiri shawl making with the beautiful colors of Laduree macaroons was born.
The beautiful yet subtle and captivating colors of the macaroons were the kernel for the delightful works of art presented in the Kashmir Seasons spring collection. Each shawl or scarf in our spring collection has been infused with the lush and rich colors of pastel. Layered on top of such beautiful and timeless color selection are the enduring craftsmanship of the finest and most timeless and artistic embroidery from the beautiful and wonderful region of Kashmir.
A few shawls are worth mentioning here and a fitting place to start is with the Crème de Menthe Paisley Silk Scarf / Shawl. Decked in the finest and most delicate embroidery you can find the Crème de Menthe Paisley Silk Scarf / Shawl has been delicately coated with the subtle but enriching color of mint-green.
We also have to mention the beautiful Lavender Fog Paisley Silk Scarf / Shawl which was inspired by the timeless lavender color of one of Laduree’s best-selling macaroons. Versatile and dynamic, the Lavender Fog Paisley Silk Scarf / Shawl will add timelessness and artistic flair to any wardrobe.
