New Yorkers forget Barney’s CO-OP. Londoners forget Top Shop. Neither of these stores have ANYTHING on Colette. Colette is an interesting design concept store in Paris, France. You can get everything from music and books, to young and hip designer threads. I think you can even get food there! Shopping in Colette is truly an experience and when I visit Paris this summer I will definitely bring back insights into the goodies they have. When are they opening a branch in NYC??? The trendy set here would be there in droves. They have cool glasses by Cazal x Dita and trendy shirts by Ksubi x Cory.
One of the reasons I wanted to do a post about this store is that Colette is showing pieces by the Swiss artist Comenius Roethlisberger on the ground floor of their Paris store. The exhibition is entitled “Dearest Constellation, Sweetest Invitation”. Roethlisberger uses powdered sugar and cocaine (yes, that yayo) suspended in resin boxes to create the logos of many of the top fashion designers. Cocaine and fashion…well, that’s new!
For all you New York Fashionistas, this show will be in the city from March 26 – March 28 at SCOPE.
