It is well established that Paris has the best pastry.
Not too long ago, I rhapsodized about the mighty macaron, a wonder of airy-crisp almond flour, egg whites, sugar and buttercream. Très delicieux!
It is good reason, along with a fortifying pain au chocolat or sweet crêpe, to flee the States and embrace the Seine.
Until that happens, I can always get my French fix by visiting Bonjour Mon Coussin, where luscious food images adorn pillows, purses, scarfs, pencil cases, aprons, mugs and jewelry.
These oh-so-fetching, eye-popping products are created by Claire Eglizeaud and Paul Moreau, a designer and graphic artist from Bordeaux, who are inspired by vintage postcards and advertisements as well as objects found in their own modern world.
Of course their designs encompass more than food — I LOVE this book bag:
and these earrings,
and this pillow,
but I always come back to things like this (cutest pencil case ever):
I love the whole retro-pop/vintage/Parisian vibe. Anyone have a few Euros to spare?
