Co­lette Bids Adieu Af­ter 2 decades in Busi­ness

Shoes & Accessories - - The Month That Was -

French main­stay Co­lette has closed its doors, bring­ing an end to a 20-year run that saw the store sev­eral col­lab­o­ra­tion, while of­fer­ing some of the world’s finest fash­ion.

The Parisian shop was founded in 1997 by Co­lette Rous­saux, whose daugh­ter Sarah An­del­man would go on to han­dle many of its day-to-day op­er­a­tions.

With its im­me­di­ately iden­ti­fi­able blue hue and now-iconic dou­ble-dot logo, Co­lette man­aged to achieve global recog­ni­tion thanks in large part to its quirky col­labs and unique cu­ra­tion of both of high-end and in­ex­pen­sive goods.

In July, the store an­nounced on In­sta­gram that it would be clos­ing this year, adding that Rous­saux would be leav­ing and that it sim­ply couldn’t con­tinue without its founder.

French fash­ion house Saint Lau­rent is tak­ing over the re­tailer’s for­mer space. To com­mem­o­rate the chang­ing of the guard, the la­bel and Co­lette co-hosted a party Mon­day that in­cluded a per­for­mance from rap­per Travis Scott.
