WORDS Mary Garner
The Sorbet Collection, a recent addition to Le Creuset‘s stoneware range, evokes nostalgia with its mix of retro pastel shades.
Fifties-style ice-cream shades are back in vogue, and The Sorbet Collection by Le Creuset is bang on-trend. The cool colour palette of this collection, which comes in various gift sets, includes the pastel favourites Coastal Blue, Cool Mint and Chiffon Pink; the familiar neutrals Cotton and Dune; and a brand-new buttery yellow shade called Mimosa.
Le Creuset South Africa has a theory as to why throwback elements play a role in modern lifestyle trends: “The continual news flow from social media creates a very dynamic and non-stop environment. To counterbalance this, there is a natural and growing tendency to look back with love on the memories and experiences we hold dear from our past.”
The Sorbet Collection includes mugs, square dishes, ice-cream bowls, mini ramekins, mini cocottes, mini bowls, fridge magnets, egg cups and spoons.
Gift sets start at R490. Visit lecreuset.co.za for more information.
