Achievement
Founded back in 1997 in the heart of the 1st arrondissement, Sarah Andelman’s colette – named for her mother, Colette Roussaux – has long been the chicest of French boutiques and a proverbial must-visit for the most fashionable Parisians. Thanks to its seemingly unparalleled stock and its penchant for everything from Le Labo scents to Swoosh-emblazoned kicks, colette rose to the cream of the global crop long ago and has become the obvious source of inspiration for the countless do-everything imitators that have been established in the years since. Sadly, its doors are closing for good when 2017 comes to an end, but the two-decades-old Paris staple has gone out with a bang. Whether it be limited-time pop-ups, Chanel x Pharrell x adidas drops, “Jardin sacai,” chunky polka-dotted Birkenstocks, or even blue-bunned Blend burgers, nobody has approached the art of collaboration like Andelman. Au revoir, colette. Rue Saint Honoré – and our closets – will never be the same.
