Colette

A Paris fashion has always figure institution… but since 1997, with Colette, among others, the city’s influences are diverse. The boutique Colette has changed the conventional view of the French on the way and opened the microcosm of fashion for more ambitious ideas atypical. This allowed the creative Parisian slowly but surely to establish their reputations in the field of graphic design, music and art.

“This is a store-magazine, analyzes the consultant Jean-Jacques Picart fashion, renewed weekly showcase fact cover office and each department is like the section of a newspaper.”

Colette was born from the association of two women, a mother and a daughter, Colette and Sarah Lerfel… Far from having a preconceived idea at the start, they have been seduced by the configuration space rue St Honore, which was offered to them. The different levels, the corner position, dimensions… gave their desire to create a unique place, a different place could meet new telescope see fooding, fashion, design and beauty. Colette was born!

Colette ten years this month, while some do not give him 6 months of existence … The Lerfel duo was able to continue, which is not easy in an environment where concepts become obsolete in less time it takes to say…

Their slogan put forward the creation at large. Which take them around the world in countries such as Usa, Britain and Japan that inspire them constantly, they will unearth tomorrow’s trends , designers who ride… they are breathing the air of time.

For it is that Colette: a digest of the times, that the major part of mortals has not noticed or felt, is already in limited edition in St Honore store. Tireless, sloughed by a real novelty bulimia, they manage to maintain Colette on top of the trend, at the height of hipness. Their space is unique and has to remain so, the Lerfel play the card and integrity refuse that multiplies Colette, the most attractive proposals will not help.

“Colette must remain single”

Small description of a mythical place:

700 m2, three levels: ground floor reserved for the most advanced cosmetics, presented by young people handpicked, the beautiful attitude is probably the feature of the concept of “Colette” most glaring…

There is also a wide range of books about design, graphics, the Japanese fashion, a selection of gadgets from all parts of the globe, but not found to share here, from caramel to cotton candy to the last high-tech camera from Kodak.

Junkies latest innovations in terms of accessories will be in heaven: it presents the latest trendy sneakers, reissues of vintage Adidas or Nike Dunk with flashy colors or exclusively designed shoes for the home…

Everything can be trend nowadays of a chihuahua in a purse, through a signature bedding, a barrel of lye, a writer or a chef, and Colette has understood.

At first, it is the empire of women with all the international fashion account vanguard collection of unique and rare pieces of major fashion houses and new designers: Alexander McQueen, Chloe, Celine , Comme des Garçons, Diane von Furstenberg, Emilio Pucci, Jil Sander, Lucien Pellat-Finet, Marni, Matthew Williamson, Raf Simons, Veronique Branquinho, Jeremy Scott, Niels Klavers, Blaak … It is also an exhibition , which took place in early January 2007 the My exhibition, a sixty works offering a wide panorama of contemporary art in all its forms: graphic design, illustration, graffiti…

In the basement is the famous water bar. Who knew that drinking water would one day be the luxury must? In this unusual and terribly trendy area, you can taste a minimalist cuisine but quality: the bread has Poujauran, ice or Toraya Ladurée. The advantage to go into 34 the first floor. The meal is therefore accompanied by water in many flavors (65 mineral waters that are proposed to quench your thirst).

The best known – Volvic, Vittel – cotoient are much more refined nectars; Dew of the Queen, the Queen of Belgium Spa, Alpenrose Swiss Alps, the Acqua della Madonna of the Holy Italy, Hungary and Theadora What course, many rare aerated waters from Portugal, Slovenia , Welsh mountains or those of Spain…
