Other Ladurée’s macaroons-inspired collection, item or makeup : Louis Vuitton by Marc Jacobs Spring/Summer 2007 (Marc Jacobs took inspiration from Ladurée’s macaroons for the round small pieces which decorated the « Polka Dot Fleurs » handbag in this collection ; this inspiration process was filmed by Loïc Prigent for his « Marc Jacobs & Louis Vuitton » DVD, published by arte Video in September 2007), Mary Katrantzou Spring/Summer 2011 (the makeup of this show, by Val Garland, was inspired by a box of pastel Ladurée’s macaroons), Vera Wang Spring/Summer 2012 (Ladurée’s macaroons-inspired color palette for some pieces).
