Au Revoir Colette: 1997-2017

It pains me greatly to be writing this post. I remember one of my first trips to Colette while I was in high school. Everything was so 'trés chic' or 'bien cool'-- as the cool kids would say in Paris.



My first purchase was a pair of Karl Lagerfeld platform shoes. Like many of the items at Colette, there was nothing remotely like them in New York. Those shoes were the begging of a long love affair with Karl, Paris and shopping. Up until last year, every trip to Paris required a stop at Colette.

Things have changed. Fashion has become global. The world of shopping is now at your fingertips. Hence, Colette is closing. The famous Parisan store will close it's doors on Wednesday. Throngs of fans waited outside 213 rue Saint-Honoré to experience the last days of shopping.

Unserpisingly, there are many great final collaborations that we couldn't resist shopping Colette one final time either. Some fashion highlights include this Baccarat x Saint Laurent x Colette heart that's 205€, a Club 75 x Colette sweatshirt is 75€ and this KITH x Moncler jacket is 985€.

Unfortunately, all the sale items are already sold out. We suggest you snag a piece of history now. After all: Toutes les bonnes choses ont une fin. (All good things must come to an end.) Au Revior Colette...Merci.
