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 06 season ahead.
MONCLER X FENDI “SPY” BAG
At colette we totally LOVE the new collaboration between FENDI + MONCLER which has been christened the SPY bag. With a Fendi logo-print lining and a special Moncler puffa exterior, available in fire-engine red, black and green, we completely support the “must-have” description of this white-hot winter accessory.
Jerry Hall by David Bailey, 1999
“Individuals” portraits of the GAP collection from October 2nd – 28th is an artistic kaleidoscope of iconoclastic works by some of the biggest names in photography today (discover the collectors edition book, pictured). Exclusively at colette, sale proceeds in France going to the Gap (Product) RED organisation (dedicated to strengthening the fight against SIDA).
SHU UEMERA BEAUTY OILS
Exclusively at colette until October 4th and on the colette eshop, Op Art hero John Tremblay adds his magical touch to the packaging of a stellar collection of Shu Uemura make-up remover oils. Seriously cool beauty products which look and feel super-brilliant!!
