You may know that Ladurée have the tastiest macaroons on the Champs Elysées, but you might not know that they have now opened a bar to the rear of the store, celebrating a successful 10-year tenure (if you will).
Designed by Roxane Rodriguez, it's a sort of metal spider's web of modernism meets art nouveau, where organic forms meet with fibre-optic lighting. It's a marked change from the usual creaking parquet and stolid decorative elements the brand adheres to.

Being one of the most fascinating and challenging painting techniques, the technique of pastel was actually very popular and fashionable among the 19th - century artists. French artists, like Edgar Degas, for instance, innovated this technique and employed it with an almost expressionist spirit, making it his primary medium to create some of the finest pieces of art.
Today, the Petit Palais des Champs Elysées Paris gives you an unparalleled chance to see a large body of works made with pastels and which have rarely been shown.
