For New Orleanians and visitors alike, Cafe du Monde is a wonderful place to start or end your day. Now everyone can enjoy a taste of the famous eatery through a collaboration with New Orleans-based MR EATWELL. A collection of sweatshirts, sweatpants, t-shirts, and slides became available in June and feature the bakery's iconic beignets.
A longtime admirer of Cafe du Monde, its beignets and frozen cafe au lait, and its branding, MR EATWELL founder Matt Rebackoff knew working with them would be his dream collaboration. Rebackoff has previously has collaborated with Crystal Hot Sauce and comedian Heather McMahan and was thrilled when Cafe Du Monde reached out to him to work together.
"I wanted to do something fun, and ridiculously comfortable, and in my almost always humble opinion, I think we nailed it."
Each piece in the collection is extremely soft, filled with sweet details, and can be rocked all together or sported separately. The slides are available in six sizes and the perfect accessory to the sweetsuits.
In a release, Cafe du Monde buyer Emily Jaeger said: "The entire Cafe Du Monde family is eager to celebrate the launch of this collaboration with MR EATWELL! As a family owned, local business we know the importance of supporting small businesses in our community and it has truly been a pleasure to work with Matt and make this happen."
A portion of the profits will be donated to House of Tulip, a nonprofit collective creating housing solutions for TGNC people in Louisiana.
Below, every delicious piece in the collection.
