Victoria Beckham rings in a decade of design with a Pierre Marcolini chocolate collection
Belgian chocolatier Pierre Marcolini has revealed his winter 2018 collection, alongside a new limited edition release with Victoria Beckham.
This year’s winter range continues to demonstrate the chocolate master’s commitment to evoking seasonal sensations. New flavours wrap up the haute chocolatairie’s Christmas favourites, and striking sculptural pieces are poised to adorn dinner tables this December.
This year’s statuesque all-chocolate Christmas tree stands tall, decorated in dark chocolate ‘bells’ and accompanied by assorted pralines, available in new flavours such as coffee and hazelnut; nougat with Maldon sea salt; and traditional praline with Madagascan vanilla.

Meanwhile, Marcolini has expanded his line-up of design-minded collaborators, (which includes Tom Dixon and Maison Kitsuné), with another Wallpaper* game changer, Victoria Beckham. Beckham sought to commemorate a decade of her eponymous label by thanking those who have supported her from day one with a box of chocolates.
Meeting with Marcolini in Paris, the pair shared a mutual sensibility for love stories, and for moments with family and loved ones. Taking the chocolate Maison’s staple ‘Hearts’, Beckham and Marcolini combined rare and exotic ingredients to produce ‘Les Coeurs de Victoria Beckham’. Packaged in a refined pink box with embossed gold text, the set features four new exclusive flavours – casse-noisette; caramel salted butter; rose-passion; and yuzu – which are finished in varying shades of red and pink.
‘It is an honour to be chosen to work with Victoria,’ comments Marcolini. ‘Not only to create a box of chocolates to reflect her taste and personality, but also to celebrate the wonderful achievements of her fashion brand over the last decade.’ §

The ‘Pierre Marcolini x Victoria Beckham ‘collection is available from 4 October from The Marylebone Boutique, Selfridges, Harrods online, as well as a pop-up in Victoria Beckham’s Dover Street outlet.
