Victoria Beckham is one of the most talked about women in the world, from her VB fashion collections going viral to her fun Instagrams with the rest of the Beckham clan.

This week however, VB made news as she teamed up with world renowned chocolatier Pierre Marcolini, together designing a limited-edition box of chocolates to celebrate the milestone 10th anniversary of her iconic fashion house.

Victoria Beckham and Pierre Marcolini have created a collection of chocolate hearts together, something they are said to have co-created in Paris.

The flavours? Casse-Noisette, Caramel Salted Butter, Rose-Passion and Yuzu.

‘I am so excited to be launching this collection of limited-edition chocolates with Pierre Marcolini,’ announced Victoria Beckham. ‘His attention to detail and unmatched level of craftsmanship, has produced something feminine and modern. Pierre is so much fun to work alongisde with an infectious humour – I hope people enjoy the chocolates as much as we did creating them.’

Pierre Marcolini agreed: ‘It is an honour to be chosen to work with Victoria, to not only 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. Where the realms of art, fashion, and culinary creation meet one another, it has been a pleasure to work on this project where our creative vision has joined together.’

Pierre Marcolini Les Coeurs De Victoria Beckham are now available worldwide, and there are even more set to be released for Christmas.

We officially cannot wait!
