Couture Meets Gourmet


It was about two years ago, when I first wrote about an Estonian talented gourmet designer Kadri Mertsina, whose brand Sweet & Chic is a synonym for delicate handmade gourmet cookies and sweets. Now I’m happy beyond words, as together with her and Tiina, we had an idea to create a special gourmet cookies collection, inspired by the SS’16 couture fashion collection designed by Tiina Talumees. One of my long time dreams had come true.

Sweet & Chic Couture Cookies Collection

The fashion collection is called Gardenia and is being inspired, as the name also suggests, by the same delicate flowers and the legends surrounding them. With its pastel colours, handmade embroidery and luxurious pearl embellishments, the collection is a true romantic dream, making its wearer utterly feminine and unique.

All of us were – and still are – very inspired by this exquisite combination of couture fashion and gourmet. You can see that the new Couture Cookies Collection is ever so masterfully reflecting the fashion collection that it’s being inspired by, be it in colours or by creating of sugar the same feminine lace details that one sees in the fashion collection being made of the highest quality couture lace. The only question is – would any fashion lover honestly have an heart to eat those wonderful gourmet creations?
