Fashion designer Marie France Van Damme has teamed up with Hong Kong-based craft chocolatier Conspiracy Chocolate to develop seven new flavours that are unique to the fashion brand.
The 75 percent dark chocolate creations are inspired by the cultural and culinary traditions of every city that Marie France Van Damme is part of and come wrapped in individual packaging designs that also reflect the nature of each place.
“With travel restrictions still in place, it is a fun way for people to discover our stores worldwide, one bite at a time, through the different chocolate flavours. We partnered with Conspiracy Chocolate because they are an artisanal brand, who shares our ethos – that of using high-quality ingredients from a single known source to handcraft small batch products, with a true passion for what they do,” said Van Damme.
Conspiracy Chocolate chose ingredients that are hallmarks of each store location but are not typically associated with chocolate, such as notes of soy sauce caramel in Singapore’s sweet and salty bar.
Other flavours include: Dubai, with Middle-Eastern hints of pistachio and dates; Morocco, a spicy, aromatic blend with delicate rose harissa; Miami, featuring fruity notes of cherry complemented by smoky pineapple; Thailand’s delicate coconut and lemongrass combination; Hong Kong’s reflection of its Asian and European influences through hojicha (toasted macha) and genmacha toasted rice; and Beverly Hills’ citrusy flavour of fresh orange peel, dried in the sun, with a brush of gold on the chocolate’s surface paying homage to the city’s glamour.
