Just in time for Fashion Week, two Parisian institutions have joined forces to create a pop-up store that will run for just a week (March 1-10). Set in a former garage on rue Saint-Honoré, Colette x Chanel is a study in luxurious contrasts: street versus couture, modern versus classic. We’re picturing the Uptown Girl video, but styled by Karl Lagerfeld.
In addition to Chanel’s sumptuous spring collection, the temporary shop will carry a selection of young designers handpicked by the discerning Colette team, as well as one-off goodies, such as Karl Lagerfeld dolls, charms and cameras—for the Kaiser in you. The industrial hub promises to be a flurry of activity, with special performances, we well as appearances by the boutique’s artist friends, who’ve been enlisted to deface accessories for a few lucky costumers—the ultimate in subversive luxury.
