If you’re still mourning the Parisian institution that was colette, a heartfelt new documentary might soothe your pain. Colette, Mon Amour is an hour-long love letter to the influential store, and it’s set to premiere during Paris Fashion Week alongside a dedicated pop-up shop, which is already open for business.
Those of you not currently in the French capital, however, can get a taster of the documentary in the video above. Directed by Hugues Lawson-Body and co-produced by La Pac and Highsnobiety, Colette, Mon Amour details the 20-year-history of the former concept store, which opened on Rue Saint-Honoré in 1997 and closed in December 2017.
The film features interviews with Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, Virgil Abloh, and Futura, among others, who discuss colette’s impact on the world of fashion.
Of course, no colette experience would be complete without a range of coveted merch, so naturally, the pop-up store is open during PFW, too, and located on the same block as the original store at Café Kitsuné (208 Rue Rivoli).
Colette, Mon Amour has already had screenings in Paris, London, and New York City. Public screenings will be held in Paris from February 26 through March 1, every day at 6:00 p.m. You can learn more about the showcase here.
