If sweets and desserts are too calorie-rich for you, then Japanese accessories designer Tadaaki Wakamatsu has some dessert-inspired jewellery to wear instead of eat. The model turned jeweller was here to open his first shop outside Japan at Harbour City on Wednesday, and readily admitted he had a sweet tooth. 'I still enjoy very much the taste of desserts,' Wakamatsu said. 'I can't help thinking about it after every meal. Since I started this business, I have had more chances to eat desserts. My friends and clients send me cakes and chocolates as gifts. I also visit more bakeries and candy shops to seek inspiration.' With pendants that look deliciously like chocolate and charms resembling macaroon with cream, Wakamatsu is happy to kiss off his low-carb diet forever. In fact, in Hong Kong, the Japanese designer has been indulging in his favourite treats, Hong Kong-style mango-pomelo sweet soup and mango pudding. 'I've gained some weight since I quit modelling and it's unlikely I'll return to that business. My modelling job was more like being a human clothes hanger, but as a designer I can express my ideas more freely.' For Valentine's Day, he even has a limited-edition mango macaroon series and other chocolate jewellery. But his favourite Valentine gift was a cake from his wife. 'It was actually a quite plain chocolate cake, without many decorations, but it was a cake made with love, and that's what matters.' The best thing about his designs is that they aren't too rich, in any sense of the word.
