Just when I’m headed back to Paris for a few weeks, Colette will be closed from the July 7th until August 25th for renovations. Too bad, but on the inside they’re cooking up a fresh new interior which is created by Masamichi Katayama of Wonderwall, who is known for creating all the Bape stores as well as the Original Fake and many recent Uniqlo stores.
Later this summer, New Yorkers can have there own petit Parisian experience because there will be a mini Colette opening on September 6th until October 5th. The pop-up shop will be located next to the Gap flagship store on 54th Street near 5th Avenue. Which is very exciting for the New Yorkers and others who will be there at the time.
