2017. Rue Saint Honoré, Paris. Colette, the concept store that has revolutionized trends and pop culture for 20 years, is closing. At the peak of its success and influence. Colette closes its doors, just as it opened them in 1997. Why this sudden decision?

All the greatest creators and artists are there, alongside Colette’s faithful team, to share their memories of the Parisian concept shop and its effect on the fashion industry and youth culture.

Exclusive interviews and archives – featuring leading industry figures such as Kanye West, Pharrell Williams, Futura 2000 or Virgil Abloh – offer the study of a place and a team, a family, a human adventure led by two women, a mother and daughter, Sarah and Colette.

« Colette is the place where you go if you want to buy the future. »
Pharell Williams

« Colette was the internet before the internet. (…)
It just became part of the DNA. If we’re going to Paris, we’re going to Colette.»
Kanye West
