There is both happy and sad news. I will start-off by announcing the latter which concerns, Parisian boutique Colette. Colette sadly reported that they will be closing their doors December 20th 2018 for good.

What’s Colette?

Colette, is a well-known store, located on Rue Saint-Honoré in Paris, it was established in 1997 by Colette Roussaux. In the initial years, Roussaux lived above the store with her daughter, Sarah Andelman, who is now the creative director.

Over the years, this boutique has gained a reputation for having the season’s hottest collections for both contemporary brands and exclusive capsule collections. Not only this, but the boutique sells; books, filming supplies and gifts. In addition to all the shopping options, they have their own fabled café, which in itself has made its own distinct identity.

Their clothing line will consist of black graphic printed hoodies and t-shirts that honor the rock ‘n’ roll idols, like: Depeche Mode, Axl Rose, Patti Smith, Blondie and Bryan Ferry. The line will also include a diverse range of leather goods and accessories such as: purses, tags, totes, pouches and fetish toy’s, which will all have rock ‘n’ roll touches to them.

This partnership was AISPI(ed) because there are so many diverse pieces in this collection, not only this but the collaboration tells a story through every piece. Fashion that is Unique and Fashion that tells a Story are what AISPI stands for.

Colette, is and will always remain one of AISPI’s favorite boutiques. A major reason for this is they started from the bottom and are now on the list of best shopping destinations in the world. AISPI, embrace’s young artists who are entering the world of fashion and are providing options shifted away from mainstream brands.

Colette, has defiantly made its impact on the world, which is something that requires a lot of passion, creativity and hard-work. We should embrace this very passion and be inspired by them.

Check out the store before they close their doors forever!!!
