Guillaume Salmon is PR for colette since more than 7 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.
A brand created just four years ago and already everybody is clamoring for it. Already there have been two CFDA nominations (fashion equivalent of the Oscars), a collaboration with Gant (available soon at colette), so things are definitely peachy for Michael Bastian! This season there are all the trends: grunge, lumberjack, army, and preppy too! Those who know his work will be surprised by his punk version of American style, with jeans tucked into boots, kilts, plaid shirts with yokes, and a touch of poetry as well with the phrase “Love is blind” applied to soft cashmere sweaters and sleeping masks .
