Shopper’s Diary: La Patisserie des Reves in Paris

The traditional French patisserie receives an infusion of glamor at Philippe Conticini's charmingly modern La Patisserie des Reves, designed by Thierry Teyssier. Both locations—there's one in the 16th (shown below) and another in the 7th arrondissement—feature pale gray interiors infused with touches of hot pink; the gateaux and classic patisserie offerings are displayed in futuristic temperature-controlled domes. Conticini and Teyssier have devoted as much time to packaging and decor as to the patisserie interiors; we are particularly taken with the pink gift packaging. For more information, go to La Patisserie des Reves.
