Colette Bids Au Revoir

SINGING THE BLUES: “I must admit, I didn’t get much shut-eye last night,” confessed Sarah Andelman, who was on duty first thing Wednesday, helping prepare for Colette‘s final day. Her uniform: an Au Revoir Colette hooded sweatshirt, Noir Kei Ninomiya skirt and printed Moncler puffer jacket.
A gaggle of young hipsters formed an orderly queue at around 10.30 a.m., half an hour before opening time, as staff ferried boxes of stock and window dressers put the final touches on the store’s last ever window display — a quiet and enchanting affair featuring 25 species of butterfly fluttering in a mesh cage. The installation nods to the store’s first ever window display 20 years ago, which featured blue butterflies.

Colette will cease operations at 7 p.m. tonight, while the e-shop will shutter at 11:59 p.m., although a lot of the online stock has sold out. The retailer on Dec. 19 sent out a final newsletter, titled Au Revoir. It thanked customers and partners, and invited people to share messages on the site from midnight Wednesday. Colette also plans to upload video messages filmed by Hugues Lawson-Body for a documentary he is making about the store.

Colette Jewelry Taps Georgia Fowler for Instagram Campaign

Los Angeles-based fine-jewelry brand Colette this week will debut #ColetteWoman, a digital and Instagram campaign featuring two-time Victoria’s Secret runway model Georgia Fowler wearing the brand’s holiday and signature pieces.
Fowler, who has 408,000 followers on the social media platform, will be the brand’s first official face, representing the ideal Colette woman.
“I first discovered Georgia on Instagram,” designer Colette Steckel said, “where I followed her travels around the world and was instantly drawn to her ‘joie de vivre,’ warmth and cool sense of style. A serendipitous run-in in Paris last season sealed the deal for both of us; it was meant to be.”
Steckel described the #ColetteWoman as “a woman of the world, shaped by her diverse experiences. She’s fearless, independent and finds beauty in all of her encounters.” It was important to Steckel to find a woman who would resonate with her creative influences, many of which stem from her French-Mexican heritage and extensive travels. To celebrate the launch, she’s inviting friends, fans and collectors to share how they identify with Georgia and the #ColetteWoman, using the hashtag.
Photographed by Felisha Tolentino with makeup by Spencer Barnes and hair by Amber Rose, the campaign also signifies an overhaul of Colette’s digital strategy.

Crowds Flock to Colette for Alexandre de Betak

THE SHOW MUST GO ON: It was Alexandre de Betak’s turn to take the limelight Wednesday evening as guests such as Jean-Baptiste Mondino, Lou Doillon, Jason Wu and Felipe Oliveira Baptista queued patiently at Colette for the star fashion show producer to sign copies of a book – his first – charting his nearly three decades in the industry.
“It’s really good to be recognized for the work rather than anything else, that’s what it’s really about,” said de Betak in a brief aside between signing copies of the tome, “Betak: Fashion Show Revolution,” and embracing friends.
He has also staged a window installation at Colette featuring scenes from fashion shows and video displays, and customized “fashion week survival” products are on sale at the store.
Sofia Sanchez de Betak, chatting with guests in the background and sipping a ginger shot specially concocted by Maisie Café for the occasion, was happy for her husband to be the center of attention. “Obviously I know everything he has done, and I’ve worked a lot on the process of the book but seeing it all together is overwhelming, and I realized again how major he is. He’s not just the guy sleeping next to me every night,”

Lucien Pagès Unveils Elements of Colette Pop-up

SUMMER FLING: Paris p.r. guru Lucien Pagès is gearing up for his summer-themed pop-up, Les Vacances de Lucien, in Colette’s first-floor space starting on Aug. 7. Among the exclusive items carried there will be two new lipsticks from the Rouge Dior line.
Peter Philips, Christian Dior’s creative and image director for makeup, also conceived the color cosmetics looks sported by 16 people appearing in a video installation that is to be shown in the windows of the Rue Saint-Honoré store.

Created by Studio L’Étiquette, the clip features 16 personalities, including Bella Hadid, Charlotte Chesnais, Vanessa Seward, Yazbukey and Yoon. In the video, each responds to questions posed by French journalist Sophie Fontanel.
Visitors to the concept store will — through Sept. 2 — be able to snap up especially created items from the brands represented by Pagès’ agency, many of which are one-offs, as well as a selection from their fall collections. Olympia Le-Tan, A.P.C., Loewe and RVDK/Ronald van der Kemp are among the 32 labels and designers participating.
As reported, the landmark Paris boutique is to host a series of pop-ups before closing its doors definitively on Dec. 20.

From Aug. 7 to Sept. 2, visitors to the landmark concept store will be able to pick up specially created items from the brands represented by his agency, many of which are one-offs, as well as selections from their fall collections.

H&M Studio and Colette Team Up

SWEDISH BLUE: H&M has teamed up with Colette to create a capsule collection inspired by the fall line of its more exclusive Studio line. The Parisian concept store has previously sold the Swedish retailer’s designer and celebrity-driven collaborations, such as the 2012 Anna Dello Russo hook-up.
This is the first time the Swedish fast-fashion brand has co-designed a range with a retailer. “[The collaboration] was such a natural process, it became another twist to this collection. As a tribute to Colette, we strengthened the blue accents,” said Emily Johansson, concept manager for H&M.
Among the nine pieces created for the concept store is a demure long-sleeved checkered dress layered with a hand-painted graffiti design (going for 170 euros). Another piece features hairy jacquards specially designed and produced for the range.

Other pieces, all featuring a touch of Colette’s signature blue, included a flirty ruffled eyelet minidress, a white shirt in a tone-on-tone motif and a wool-nylon poncho-anorak hybrid, priced at 200 euros.

Balenciaga’s Colette Takeover Includes Eye Masks, Mugs and Beyond

LOGO MANIA: After the Balenciaga Paris souvenir scarf and the Balenciaga Ikea-inspired tote, the brand that elevates generic items into desirable designer objects is bringing out Balenciaga mugs and sleeping masks.
The items are part of a selection of exclusive products created to celebrate Balenciaga’s takeover of the first floor of landmark Paris concept store Colette, as part of a new series of guest slots.
Creative director Demna Gvasalia has concocted a series of events for its residency, scheduled to run from June 19 to Aug. 5, including installations, an art exhibit and free manicures, courtesy of Balenciaga’s nail artist Mei Kawajiri.
Its men’s fall collection, inspired by corporate culture, will be the centerpiece of the display. A selection of looks from the women’s collection, available exclusively at Colette, will be offered in key fabrics and colors borrowed from the men’s line, alongside novelty items like the aforementioned mugs.

Balenciaga to Open First-Floor Brand Takeovers at Colette

GUEST HOUSE: Balenciaga recently revamped its Rue Saint-Honoré store, a few doors down the same Paris street from Colette. Now Balenciaga is kicking off a series of monthlong brand takeovers of the first floor of the landmark concept store.
For its guest slot — scheduled to run June 19 to Aug. 5, with a custom-made design under the artistic direction of its creative director Demna Gvasalia — Balenciaga is to present its men’s fall collection, an exclusive women’s collection and limited-edition products specially designed for the event. Other surprises are in store, according to Colette, with the Kering-owned brand also due to stage an artistic installation in the floor’s gallery space. Only the store’s Beauty Box space will remain unchanged.
Gvasalia, whose design ethos is based around “enhancing, underlining and re-presenting that which already exists in a new light,” in March unveiled a new design concept for Balenciaga’s Rue Saint-Honoré flagship based on a clothing warehouse, with industrial conveyor rails similar to those in the brand’s production headquarters in Italy, ceilings covered in aluminum foil, and long, aluminum tables for accessories.
Following in Balenciaga’s footsteps, meanwhile, will be Les Vacances de Lucien, offering a selection of designs from brands represented by Paris-based Lucien Pagès’ namesake public relations agency, which will take over the space from

Apple Fans Queue at Colette for Smartwatch

PASSING THE TIME: Around 70 people queued outside Paris concept store Colette on Friday morning hoping to snag one of the first Apple watches.
The first in line had been waiting since 3 p.m. the previous day, while others had joined the queue on Thursday evening, spending a chilly spring night outdoors without any certainty that the product would be available once the store opened its doors.
“We read a lot of things on the Internet, approximately 1,000 watches, but with the preorders, it’s impossible to say actually how many watches they have. I’m crossing my fingers, of course,” said Lucas Dufossez, 26, a sales manager for a communications company in Belgium.
Dufossez was determined to lay his hands on a stainless steel model with a Milanese Loop bracelet costing 799 euros in Europe and $ 699 in the United States. He decided to wait in line after being told by Apple that the product would not be available for several weeks if he ordered it online.
“To be the first, that’s the most important. Personally, my order is scheduled for May 12 and I can’t wait until May 12,” he explained, adding that he had spotted the watch on celebrities in magazines. “Of course
