86Champs: the new Parisian address by Pierre Hermé and l’Occitane
The pastry chef Pierre Hermé and the Provençal cosmetic brand l’Occitane have opened a hybrid and magical location, at the crossroads of genres, at the 86 avenue Champs-Elysées. Its name: 86Champs.
An enchanting place in the heart of the Triangle d’Or
It is thus in the heart of the Triangle d’Or that the two renowned houses have decided to partner up to create, on 1000 m2 and two floors, a temple dedicated to beauty and delicacies. The 86Champs is a restaurant, a concept-store and a cocktail and dessert bar. The architect Laura Gonzalez was entrusted with the design. She used blue, green, blush pink and creamy orange shades to give this new Parisian place a wonderful interior.
A multisensory space
At the 86Champs, one can have many experiences. First, by discovering the organ of flavours of l'Occitane and the beauty cream bar, or by tasting a Pierre Hermé macaron, or one of the drinkable desserts which he specially crafted for this location. Thus, his legendary pastry, the Ispahan, is turned into a drinkable dessert, with litchi, raspberries and mascarpone rose cream. The 86Champs also offers dishes to share, like the Black Angus Onyx beef entrecote, or delicacies like the meagre ceviche with citruses. The menu also includes gluten-free and vegan dishes, like the celeriac risotto.
As a bonus, it’s possible to rediscover on the spot the three flavours created by Pierre Hermé for l’Occitane in 2015, updated for the occasion: miel-mandarine (honey-tangerine), jasmin-immortelle-néroli (jasmine-immortal-neroli) and rhubarbe-pamplemousse (rhubarb-grapefruit). This store is ideally located just a few metro stations away from the Green Hotels Paris, the Eiffel Trocadéro and the Gavarni.
