COLETTEText: Linlee Allen

Former Aussie and now try-hard Parisien writer Linlee Allen wholly confesses to being the “all-round groupie” of concept store colette, located in the French capital. Having participated in the world-famous boutique’s range of events across the globe, whether it be performing in a radio show in Copenhagen, photographing guests at a party in Japan or being the first – and the last – one on the dancefloor at a CD launch party in New York, she relates to the colette way of life and here, lists her favourite finds from colette for the Autumn/Winter 05/06 season ahead.

British artist Simon Henwood takes over the colette first floor gallery during December as his painted portraits set the scene. He’s published childrens books, magazines, created artwork for album covers and directed music videos and animation clips. Is there anything he cannot do? See the show and find out for yourself. December 5th – 31st, 2005.

James Jarvis is at it again! This time around he’s introducing two new family members to his crazy character-filled world. Harvey & Jubs stand at around the 40 centimeter mark, complete with caps, gold medallions and bandana’s. The perfect solution to a gift giving nightmare this Christmas.

Definately one for those of you ready for achange from wearing North Face this season. Italian brand Moncler sets the scene in innovative ski-wear as a range of puffa vests and jackets for guys and girls come adorned with assorted patches (think numbers, varsity-styled M letters, hunting mascots and ageing rocker Rod Stewart heads. Nice one.
