1997-2017 | The End of Colette

Just yesterday during dinner we were talking with a group of friends about going to Paris and visiting 213 Rue Saint-Honoré 75001 Paris without knowing that we will need to hurry up to do it. Today, on its instagram, Colette announced that it is closing its doors in December. The most famous concept store in the world will cease its activities after 20 years on the market. It all started in 1997 when Colette Roussaux opened the doors of 213 Rue Saint-Honoré 75001 Paris and began an era of sophisticated shopping, gathering the most refined selection of trendy objects, garments and books from all around the world. Led by her daughter Sarah Andelman, Colette is an epicenter of all things cool. Andelman regularly showcased young designers and was one of the first to stock collections by Proenza Schouler, Mary Katrantzou and Rodarte. The three-storey, 8,000-square-foot space is the most important address for fashion fans and trend-hunting consumers. You can find everything from niche film camera to accessibly-priced souvenirs and T-shirts, and was the go-to for exclusive launches of brands, special products, independent magazines and the fashion incarnation of the Apple Watch.
