Colette Paris closes down

Colette, the renowned Parisian boutique, is closing down after 20 years this December. Saint Laurent will be taking over the Rue Saint Honoré location. The boutique was founded in 1997 by Colette Roussaux, and has been led by her daughter Sarah Andelman in recent years.

The three-storey, 8,000-square-foot space is a veritable destination for fashion fans and consumers. It sells everything from niche film camera to accessibly-priced souvenirs and t-shirts, and was the go-to for exclusive launches of brands, special products, independent magazines and the fashion incarnation of the Apple Watch.
