The trendiest store in the world Colette is celebrating their last working month with one final pop-up. On that occasion, the Parisian concept shop paired with Saint Laurent. The luxury brand will be taking over the space on 213 Rue St.-Honoré starting from November 27.
Anthony Vaccarello put together an exclusive capsule collection of clothing and items that will be sold in the Colette pop-up. All of the pieces in the line celebrate the Parisian culture in some way. This is probably the most diverse collaboration in the last few years. The iconic store deserves a special ending and Vaccarello definitely managed to do that.
Anthony and Saint Laurent offer a diverse range of items that are close to the history of Paris and the two brands. The whole limited-edition collection is done in black. It all starts with the most common way of transport in The City of Lights- a Vespa. As an addition to that, the luxury brand offers a black motorcycle helmet that is embellished with crystals.
Vaccarello also collaborated with Pierre Marcolini and will introduce a custom box of chocolates. Among the other limited-edition items, you will find a Polaroid camera, unique leopard Arkaic Concept skateboard, eyeshadow palettes and more.
When it comes to the clothing part of the line, Vaccarello kept the designs minimalistic. There are black chic hoodies and T-shirts which feature the faces of Patty Smith and Brian Ferry. Saint Laurent’s bags for Colette are as exclusive and unique as ever. You will find elegant cross-body bags and small coin purses decorated with red hearts.
Saint Laurent x Colette pop-up will officially be launched on November 27 and it will be open until December 20. This exclusive collaboration marks the end of an era. After December 20, the rumors are that Saint Laurent will be the brand to take over the space of Colette.
“Negotiations are underway with Saint Laurent and we would be proud to have a brand with such a history, with whom we have frequently collaborated, taking over our address. We are happy with the serious interest expressed by Saint Laurent in this project, and it could also represent a very good opportunity for our employees.”- said Colette’s statement to Business of Fashion.
The iconic boutique set up several high-end pop-ups before closing their doors for good. Currently, Chanel and Karl Lagerfeld have taken over the space of the store, offering many limited-edition designs to customers. Chanel’s takeover will end on November 25.
