It's an end of an era for Colette as the store plans to shut.
The World’s Favourite Parisian Boutique to Close After 20 Years
Sad news for fashionistas this morning as Colette announce they’re shutting their doors for good.
The iconic boutique first opened in 1997 by Colette Roussaux but in recent years has been managed by her daughter Sarah Andelman – famed for her fashion edits and turning the store into one of Paris’ most loved fashion pit-stops. She championed designs from up-and-coming designers, being the first to stock Rodarte, Mary Katrantzou and Proenza Schouler.
Taking to Instagram, the store opens up about their decision: “As all good things must come to an end, after twenty wonderful years, Colette should be closing its doors on December 20th of this year. Colette Roussaux has reached the time when she would like to take her time, and Colette cannot exist without Colette.”

According to BOF, Saint Laurent is set to take over the Rue Saint Honoré location. No further announcements have been made. However, one thing we can guarantee is Colette will be greatly missed.
