colette news January 10

Undercover is making a comeback at colette. This season, the Japanese designer Jun Takahashi draws inspiration from the world of German industrial designer Dieter Rams*. The guiding principle is to eliminate the unnecessary to retain only the essential. We can find this simplicity in the Men’s collection, and also in an exclusive tee-shirt for colette, while we wait for the upcoming fragrance, Grace. In our windows from January 18.


Hardrige with L’Ecurie
Hardrige was created in 1985 and was a supplier for the French army, air force, and marines. In collaboration with L’Ecurie agency they have imagined a loose, fashionable interpretation of their Rafale style; a city version of supersonic jet pilot boots! Limited edition, on preview at colette.


Giuseppe Zanotti S/S 10
For this Spring / Summer 2010 season, Giuseppe Zanotti unveils a collection that reveals the character, femininity, and sensuality of those who wear it. The Italian designer creates for colette a range of delicate black ballerinas dressed with a cartridge holder with bullets decorated with rhinestones. You will be subtly armed to have men falling at your feet. Exclusively at colette.


House of Valentino
As part of the T-Shirt Couture project presented by the House of Valentino for Summer 2010, creative directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli have created a very special t-shirt for colette. Inspired by their Spring / Summer 2010 collection, an orchid print is applied to a fine jersey adorned with tulle detail. This limited edition item will be presented exclusively at colette during Haute Couture fashion week in Paris. It will also be the occasion to discover a selection of Valentino pieces, on preview at colette.

This famous modular system, created in 1960 in the spirit of Dieter Rams’ perpetual motto, “Less, but better”, requires design to pass the test of time, while adapting to your needs.
