Magnum x Saks Fifth Avenue Welcome NYFW
by Emily Granados
New York Fashion Week kicked off on September 6th and Magnum Ice Cream opened up a beautiful pop-up shop on the Fifth Floor of Saks Fifth Avenue in Manhattan to celebrate this exciting time in the city . Running from September 5th to September 17th, Saks Fifth Avenue collaborated with Magnum Ice Cream to create an interactive, high-end, ice cream experience.
Customers were able to go to the Fifth Floor of the Saks Fifth Avenue flagship store located at 611 Fifth Avenue to create their own decadent Magnum ice cream bars. Customers had a choice between three different flavors; Belgian milk chocolate, dark chocolate, or white chocolate. To add to the opulent ice cream experience, customers could garnish their Magnum bars with toppings such as mermaid pearls, rose gold crystals, crispy fig, unicorn gems, and salted caramel crisp pearls.
New York Fashion Week attendee and New York University journalism student, Nicole Rosenthal shared her positive thoughts on the experience. “I loved it, I think the build-your-own dessert bar added to the individualized experience. It looked really bougie, but I think that was the appeal of it all.”
