It's a sad week for the fashion world: colette will be closing its doors for good on Wednesday, December 20th.
The store was created on March 20th, 1997 and ever since, it served as the beating heart of Parisian fashion. More than just a fashion store, it was a place where design, culture, music, clothing, jewelry, beauty and food converged. It was a spot where celebrities, regulars, and other curious people could come, either to shop or just pass by and see what was trendy. It was like a home to most Parisians and a must-see place for tourists. More than anything, the institution will perhaps be remembered best for its groundbreaking designer collaborations.
As we are say goodbye to colette let's look back on the greatest collaborations the concept store ever done.
