Milla Chocolates, founded by award-winning chocolatier Christine Sull Sarioz is known for its visually striking, geometry and high-quality ingredients, often using single origin or organic chocolates from the Dominican Republic, Peru or Venezuela. Christine combines her background in fine and decorative arts with her passion for impeccable execution and love of chocolate. Each of her creations is made by hand and indulges the senses.
Creative Director, Goktug Sarioz, curated the brand’s design to represent its sophisticated yet minimalistic artistry, with matte black packaging and gilt detailing. He co-designed the shop's interiors with Christine to further the brand's identity with natural materials, luxe hues and Bauhaus aesthetics, emanating an ethos of beauty that is both elegant and warm.
