"As all good things must come to an end, after 20 wonderful years, Colette should be closing its doors on December 20 of this year," the company said in a statement. "Colette Roussaux has reached the time when she would like to take her time; and Colette cannot exist without Colette."
Colette was a luxury boutique located in Paris, France that was known for its trendy and unique fashion selection. The store was founded in 1997 by Colette Roussaux and her daughter, Sarah Andelman, and quickly gained a reputation as a go-to destination for fashion-forward individuals. In addition to clothing and accessories, Colette also sold a range of products including books, music, and home decor.
One of the things that set Colette apart from other stores was its willingness to collaborate with a wide range of brands and designers. The store frequently hosted events and pop-ups featuring up-and-coming talent, as well as established names in the fashion industry. Colette was also known for its innovative window displays, which were often designed by artists and changed on a regular basis
Despite its popularity, Colette announced in 2017 that it would be closing its doors for good. The store held its final sale in December of that year, and officially closed on December 20th. While the closure of Colette was a loss for the fashion world, the store's legacy lives on through the countless individuals it inspired and the memories it created for its customers.
