Chocolate Done Your Way, Any Way You Want

I have a demonstrated love for chocolate, so imagine my thrill when I discovered Chocomize, a company that lets you make chocolate bars with any kind of filling you want. You pick between white (ew, sorry), milk or dark chocolate, and then choose from a wide variety of nuts, spices, fruits, candy and decorations — like happy birthday notes or crystallized rose petals. Guys, you can even add potato chips, bacon or corn flakes if you want. Clearly, you can see how this can quickly get way out of control. In the most delicious way possible.

“I was searching for a story that people would get when they look at the book — and the story is the process. … The book is small and fat — something I could relate to.”

– The adorable, and adorably rotund, Lanvin designer Alber Elbaz, on the new book of his designs that will be debuting this fall. The book might be short and fat, but it’s not cheap — it’ll cost around €320. [NY Times]

Move over Hailee Steinfeld, there’s a new face of Miu Miu, and it’s fellow actress Mia Wasikowska. Miss Mia is an ancient 22, compared to Hailee’s wee 14, but judging from the first campaign images coming out of Miu Miu, she’s more than up for the job. I’m really digging the glossy, studio-lit shots — mostly because they’re a great way to actually see the clothes — which are completely and utterly stunning, by the way. Anybody got a spare few thousand they’d like to give me to spend on Miu Miu? And check out another shot after the jump, where she bears a striking resemblance to Kate Moss.

“Well… it’s a little bit more complicated than that…but we agreed that it was probably best for everyone. It’s a great honor to be considered, and [head of Dior] Mr. Arnault is a super intelligent man and a very smart man and it was certainly a very great honour for him to know that I was capable – and not only capable but that I am someone that he would have wanted for the job. But I am very happy to be here. There is so much more left to do and building Louis Vuitton into a fashion company is something nobody else can say they really started.”

– We’d heard rumors for forever that Marc Jacobs was being heavily considered to take over John Galliano’s position at Christian Dior, but this is the first time that Jacobs directly addressed the situation. He’ll be staying with Louis Vuitton after all, which makes sense. It seems like Jacobs’ American sportswear sensibilities might not be the best fit for Dior. Jacobs is currently planning a retrospective of his work with Louis Vuitton at the Musée des Arts Decoratifs at the Louvre in March. [Telegraph]
