|Luxury Macarons – Ladurée Paris|
Luxury and Haute Couture find their home in Paris because they belong here like no where else in the world, and it is no surprise to us that even “aprés moi, le déluge” Il Maestro Valentino who set up his Head Office just around the corner from the Spanish steps in Rome, made Paris his home.

If you are ever in any doubt that Paris is the fashion and luxury capital of the world, take a walk down Rue Faubourg Saint Honorè, Rue Royale and Place Vendôme …… be prepared to be drawn into world of pure luxury.
A refined Renaissance author Castiglione would have described it as ‘sprezzatura’ in his ‘guidebook’ for Courtiers (Il Cortigiano). The ability to appear to do something complex with effortless ease, it is as if they are born with the knowledge, whilst in reality the achievement of perfection is reached through minute study down to the smallest detail, intense practice and devotion to the cause for ‘the search of perfection’ .
Centuries of this study, practice and tradition has resulted in what Paris is today, the centre of the luxury and fashion universe.
Nothing is rushed and everything has its raison d’être until the ultimate goal is reached, PERFECTION – proof, if one needed it, that Time is in fact Luxury.
