The Most Unique Concept Stores: Colette, Paris
Want to indulge yourself with some guilty-free shopping? Join me, as I take you on a virtual tour to Paris shoppers’ paradise for fashionable luxury goods. That’s right, I am talking about Colette and a trip to this temple of style in Paris, highly recommended if you’re interested in fashion. Colette is the first stop for many visiting Paris, thanks to the incredible selection and display of everything that’s hot, unique and rare.
Colette has asserted itself as “the” Parisian concept store thanks to an eclectic and edgy mix. It is a cult store and Colette still manages to retain certain elegance in spite of its flashy, state of the art decor. You will find style, design, art, food, beauty, party and much more at Colette: food for the mind, body and soul of every woman.
The store’s aim is to bring together the most beautiful, most unusual and most expensive designer items. So if you’re looking for a special Gucci watch, a dress by Jeremy Scott, Chloe Sevigny, Junya Watanabe, Comme des Garçons, Emilio Pucci or make-up from New York, this place is bound to have it. Also worth a look is its kiosk containing the latest, most incisive fashion and design magazines for the avid followers and readers of this world, whilst its high-tech cafe downstairs offers over 100 different brands of mineral water for the thirsty ones.
With love, Janet Morais.
