Emilie Flöge

Golden Milk Caramel Nut Bar

Amuse-Bouche from Issue 11 – Summer 2017 – Heroines

In Gustav Klimt’s 1902 portrait of Emilie Flöge, she assumes a confident stance, one hand on her hip, chin raised and cheeks flushed, clad in a Byzantine mosaic-inspired dress of her own design. Flöge, whose dresses appeared in many Klimt paintings, was one of Vienna’s most au courant designers at the turn of the century and a pioneer of Reformkleider, a free-form style that rebelled against the confining corseted fashions of the day. A lifelong best friend and companion to Klimt, his last words on his deathbed in 1918 were: “Get Emilie.” Our au courant nut bar, bejeweled with dried fruit for a mosaic-like effect, is inspired by golden milk.
