Pierre Hermé and Nicholas Buffe have created a romantic collection of chocolates for V-Day


Chocolates may be the most common gift for Valentine’s Day, but that doesn’t mean that they have to be boring. Pierre Hermé has collaborated with artist Nicolas Buffe to create an exceptional range of chocolate gift boxes with a story of their own. Buffe’s artwork references the love story of Hélios and Roxane, two characters hailing from the opposite Kingdoms of the Sun and of the Moon and incorporates ancestral myths as well as elements of manga culture and Renaissance and Baroque art. The collection consists of four box sets, each one inspired by a character from the saga and includes decadent bon bons that flaunt the very best that Pierre Hermé has to offer.
