For 20 years, Colette has been the epitome of cool. Everyone from fashion designers to magazine editors has made pilgrimage to the three-storey boutique in Paris, home to an incomparable mix of luxury brands, street labels, and a miscellany of whatever else that fit its unique concept. As it prepares to bring the curtains down, Colette is going out the only way it knows how — in style.
From now 'til 20 December, Colette will host its ultimate pop-up by none other than Saint Laurent, the brand destined to take over its iconic Rue Saint-Honoré address. The French label will also be the last to collaborate with Colette for a capsule collection, curated specially by creative director Anthony Vaccarello. The collection is a mixed bag, featuring pieces from Saint Laurent’s Spring/Summer 2018 collection, as well as collector’s items from the likes of Polaroid, Baccarat and even Vespa.
Below, we highlight our top 5 picks from the diverse collection.
