Man Pairs Colorful Pastries And Desserts With His Shoes

With a big appetite and a closet to match, graphic designer and chef pâtissier Tal Spiegel has paired two of his passions into a fashionably tasteful photo project—his colorful collection of shoes and an assortment of Parisian pastries. Cleverly titled Desserted in Paris, the quirky series features photos of matching shoes and desserts. Worn and gobbled up by Spiegel on the streets of Paris.


Spiegel documents his color coordinated combinations on his Instagram account. He has amassed a large and loyal following thanks to his taste in both sweets and shoes. Each photograph features a close-up shot of the pastry held above his feet. With their bright colors and decorative embellishments, many of the the pastries look more like miniature works of art and less like baked goods, a visual emphasized by Spiegel’s photographic focus and concentration on color.

If you like what you see on Spiegel’s feet or in his hand, he helpfully accompanies each picture with a caption. That cites the bakery, provides details about the type, ingredients, and flavors of each pastry. It also credits the brand behind each pair of shoes.
