We have already reported that Colette is currently renovating their store in Paris. Today they announced some features of the new renovated store and it for sure sounds intriguing and interesting.
"The will indeed is to ensure the first floor a broadened out area, not only dedicated to fashion, and also a more accessible space for streetwear, so dynamic today. colette therefore contacted Japanese architect Masamichi Katayama / Wonderwall* to go over its ground floor and finally decided to let him redesign all three floors. A real challenge for him because of the limited time and existing space to work with.
On the ground floor, clients will still find a selection of books, magazines, CDs, records, DVDs, hi-tech products, watches and accessories, and all these little fun objects we love. There will also be a space dedicated to streetwear culture with a wall of sneakers, a house of tshirts multi-brands and mini-shops Alife, A Bathing Ape, Billionaire Boys Club / Ice Cream, Original Fake (all exclusive).
On the first floor, find always mens and womens fashion with our unique mix of established brands and newcomers, as well as accessories and precious jewelry. Beauty, “candles bar” and our favorites of the season will come to complete. The gallery remains were currently situated and a new space for temporary projects will be created below."
We cannot wait for the new store to be finished. August 25 is the re-opening.
In the meantime you can visit the Mini Colette Store at 23 Place du Marché Saint Honoré.
