With Chanel continuing to prepare for its month-long takeover of the first floor of colette’s retail space in Paris, the two brands have released new information on what visitors can expect to see. In addition to sharing the blue hand-painted logo for the takeover, the French fashion house has revealed that it will be taking over the location from October 30 to November 25. In a statement obtained by WWD, creative director Karl Lagerfeld will feature ready-to-wear pieces from Chanel’s Fall 2017 and Cruise 2018 collections presented in a “dreamlike scenography.”
The Chanel takeover will be the second to last collaboration colette will see before closing its doors permanently at the end of the year. When Chanel is finished, Saint Laurent will bring its own spin on things to the retail space starting on November 27 and will take over the store permanently starting on December 20. If you’re in Paris, be sure to see what Lagerfeld has in store for yourself starting on October 30.
