Guillaume Salmon is PR for colette since more than 5 years, enjoying to be in the middle of different culture and microcosms… From the west coast of France, he is a Parisian since ever and for ever for one reason, because Paris is Magic!!! He will be proud and glad to relate to the colette way of life and here, lists his favorite finds from colette month after month.

James Mollison Exhibition
To celebrate this new year, colette presents two new exhibitions under musical influence, January 5th – 24th. 2004-2007, James Mollison goes from concert to concert throughout the USA and Europe to set up his photo studio and snap portraits of fans of each band at the entrance of gigs. Then he gathers portraits of 8 to 10 people into one and only panoramic picture. This book, The Disciples and the eponymous exhibition present today’s musical culture and the notion of tribe. A quite radical turn in James Mollison’s photography, reknown especially for his work on monkeys, but still showing an amazing force in taking portraits.
