WTFashion: Marchesa Luisa Casati… Chocolates?

Chicago’s Vosges Haut Chocolates have launched the Marchesa Casati Truffle Collection, a “black sea salt caramel ensconced in 85% bittersweet dark chocolate and real freshwater pearl dust.”

Do I need to explain why this hurts me? I can’t wait for YSL Pregnancy Tests and the Audrey Hepburn Breakfast Sausage.


P.S. For actual information on the Marchesa Luisa Casati and why she is more than a poncy dessert, see WORN issue 9′s “Brutally Individualistic” by our very own book editor, Sara Forsyth.)

  1. Actually, Vosges introduced these Marchesa Casati truffles seven years ago. They’re a limited edition that is only available for the holidays, and have sold out every year. And if these hurt your sensiblities, you should see the exclusive Vosges Marchesa truffle collection box–plexiglass encrusted with fresh water pearls, which sells for $250.00.

  2. Good lord. Well, at least I only heard about them this year – which means these last six have been something of a gift. Though now the idea of plexiglass with pearls is shredding my soul a little bit.
