Colette Concept Store in Paris: a mecca of hip

The Colette concept store in Paris takes everything that’s hot in street culture and couture and combines them effortlessly into one 740m2 mecca of chic. It was hip before hip was even happening. The store may have been around for nearly fifteen years, but the fact that it’s still white hot and packed at any given time of the day cements it as a global institution in this fickle world of trends.

Ground floor for kitsch gifts, books, trinkets and gadgets (in case you couldn’t find that €6200 Tag Heuer mobile phone anywhere else); upstairs for high fashion, a gallery space and beauty; and the basement for a water bar, featuring 100 types of mineral water.

Drool-worthy isn’t a label only applicable to the goods for sale and sales assistants. The clientele are also a bit of eye-candy: Benicio Del Torro is a fan and Karl Lagerfield recently popped in for a book signing. Check the Collete site, Tumblr or (bilingual) blogs section to see things that will make you tingle with desire.
