This is truly breaking news – Colette, the famous Parisian concept store, is closing down after 20 years. Saint Laurent will be taking over the Rue Saint Honoré location.
The founder of Colette, Colette Roussaux, and her daughter, Sarah Andelman, in their store.
Founded in 1997 by Colette Roussaux, the house has been led by her daughter Sarah Andelman in recent years.
The boutique became renowned for its extreme fashion edits, from high end designers to upcoming street labels, Colette had it all and combined this choice with an eclectic mix of lifestyle products. You could always find up-and-coming designers, such as Proenza Schouler, Mary Katrantzou and Rodarte.

Personally speaking, I went to many fashion events that were hosted at Colette and it was always a pit stop during fashion week for inspiration. I shopped next to Kate Perry and partied with Mary Katrantzou during her launch event with Longchamp.
Colette, you will be missed! Stay tuned, the next breaking news will be coming up shortly as H&M will be announcing their next designer collaboration today!
