Colette is the original concept store. Situated on the desirable Rue St. Honoré, Colette is a fashion mecca in the heart of Paris. SO imagine my disappointment/confusion when we arrived there this summer to see the store boarded up and closed but emblazoned with signs proclaiming, “We are still open.” This referred to their e-store and Colette Mini – a small boutique, found just around the corner, where you could sample a miniscule selection of the delights Colette usually has to offer. On the 24th of August, Colette reopened; refurbished, dazzling and offering me a very good excuse to return to Paris very soon. Visit Colette’s e-store and see the refurb on NYLON’s blog.
