The color schemes in Sofia Coppola’s “Marie Antoinette” movie were inspired by pastel colored macarons, created by a well-known, centuries-old pâtisserie in Paris.
What is the name of the historic pâtisserie?
Here are a few crumbs! Belle Époch poster artist Jules Chéret designed their Saint-Germain tea salon and shop. Also, Sex and the City fans, Carrie Bradshaw “feasted here” during the season six finale. Bon Chance!
Marie Antoinette’s slipper is on exhibit at the Musée Carnavalet in the Marais, while Manolo Blahnik’s creations hold court at Galeries Lafayette and Printemps on Boulevard Haussmann.
