Darcel “And a miserable day to you too”
Craig Redman is a New York based artist, with whom colette has been collaborating to extract his character Darcel from his blog. For the first time now, we have an exhibition entirely dedicated to him.
Darcel’s inner world goes meta with “And a miserable day to you too”, as he explores everyday trivialities through painting, prints, sculptures and, of course, movie animation. You can go home with special Baggubags, key-rings , Publik tee-shirts, Bodega stickers, the new colette candle , lighters, postcard or buttons with the monocle-wearing famous character.

The worlds of Etnies Plus and Ed Banger Records join forces to create their first joint collection, EDNIES. Linked since their inception in skateboarding in the streets of Paris, Pierre-André Senizergues (creator of Etnies) and Pedro Winter (founder of Ed Banger) have joined their shared passions: music and skateboarding. With illustrations of So-Me on the insoles, which is a joke (that nobody understands! but is it really important?). In black or white! Available May 17th.

La Pharmacie
Because at colette we love taking care of ourselves while having fun we decided to dedicate an entire space to beauty. Come discover the Pharmacy, on the 1st floor. An intimate, pure, soothing space for women and men that combines makeup, perfumes, balms for skin and hair care and a “cabinet of jewelry” (jewelry for the head, headbands, accessories …). With brands from around the globe: the Australian Aesop, the American Kiehl’s and Bumble, the English James Brownand Korner, the German Uslu Airlines, the French Joëlle Ciocco and Christophe Robin and many others… and soon many new brands and services to discover.

The Cube Fontaine
The Cube Fontaine by artist Claire Fontaine is a hijacking of the famous Rubiks cube. The 6 sides of color are replaced by views of the surface of the sea. Manipulating it gives unique and contradictory images. This poetic object mixes the solid of the cube and the liquid of water – A beautiful limited edition of 1000, by Third Drawer Down.
