Do Not Want: Kill Yourself And Die Necklace

We did a double take upon seeing this necklace sold by Colette, which reads “Kill yourself and die.” (It also comes with a piece of artwork with the same slogan.) If there’s a reference to something here, we’re missing it. If there’s an artistic explanation, we’re not seeing it in the product description. Either way, we’re not sure anything could ameliorate the message of what seems to be essentially a piece of pro-suicide jewelry. [Colette] Keep reading »

Love Magazine + Longchamp = Loveliness

If you love Love magazine (we do!), then you’ll fall for this handbag collaboration brought to you by wackadoodle designer Jeremy Scott and Longchamp. Really, you will. [Colette] Keep reading »

Check This Out: Colette Ville CD Compilation And Mini Guide

For its latest music release, Parisian cool-kids boutique Colette presents you with Colette Ville, a compilation of too cool for school beats from around the world. If you’re the type who knows what Naag is, subscribes to The Gentlewoman, or has Rodarte on Google Alerts, this is one to check out. In tandem with the CD (this is like a donut-shaped MP3; don’t worry, it’s also on iTunes), Colette has set up a special micro site. Today, we’re devoting our procrastination efforts here, listening to sample tracks from indie groups from hot cities like Seoul, Stockholm, Sao Paulo, and Paris. (Check out the electro track by Diamond Dog in the Berlin section!) Best of all, a bunch of the artists have given Colette a concise list of their local favorites. So now you know what to check out the next time you’re in Tokyo (we wish!) or you might even find an uncovered hipster gem in your own area. [Colette] Keep reading »

Rodarte’s “Breathless” Tees Hit The Shelves At Colette!

For the 50th anniversary of Jean-Luc Godard’s “Breathless,” the Rodarte sisters collaborated with Parisian concept boutique Colette on a line of T-shirts inspired by the film. We were pumped when the news first broke, and now the goods have arrived. In the quartet of designs, one works the classic New York Herald Tribune logo Jean Seberg made famous. Others feature actual images from the film with colored graphic overlays.

The verdict: They’re definitely cool, but not as edgy as we thought they’d be (maybe a more vintage fabrication would have been cool). And naturally, they don’t come cheap, at about $150 each. Check out the rest of the tees after the jump. [Colette] Keep reading »

Colette + Timberland + Boat Shoes = WTF

Nice try: Colette teamed up with Timberland to make some fashion-y version of the outdoorsy boots in a boat shoe variety. We say: not so much. [Highsnobiety] Keep reading »

Karl Lagerfeld, Coke Addict

Karl Lagerfeld teamed up with Coca-Cola to make a limited edition package to be sold at Colette, and not a thing about it surprises us. Naturally, he’d only elect to associate himself with Diet Coke, considering his no-fatties-allowed rules. And of course, he’d make the design an homage to himself. Can’t say the man doesn’t stick to his guns. Do you love Uncle K so much that you would pay $5 for something you could just as easily buy for 99 cents? Die-hard fans can purchase the $80 boxed set (no joke) which comes with one bottle of Lagerfeld’s Coca Cola Light, an impressive display box, and a bottle opener. Ca-ching! If you’re interested, Colette is also counting your calories in another new way this month, with a lunch box program in Paris. On the menu: Vitamin and carrot sticks. Om nom nom.

Keith Haring Foundation Kicks It With Tommy Hilfiger

Looks like the iconic urban street artist Keith Haring is experiencing a bit of a rad revival. Although Haring died of AIDS in 1990, his foundation lives on and has been bringing his works to life in new forms, first with SIGG water bottles and now with shoes, thanks to Tommy Hilfiger. Available at Colette, Hilfiger uses Haring’s exuberant designs to decorate women’s, men’s, and kids’ sneakers, as well as rain boots. Although these styles are pretty specific to a certain fashion taste, we’re loving this collaboration for bringing together two different facets of Americana—Hilfiger’s traditionalism and Haring’s urban punch.

A More Fashionable Mt. Rushmore

If you’re in Paris, um, now (Hi Leo!), you’ll need to make a stop at Colette simply to check out their windows. Everyone knows Mt. Rushmore, featuring former presidents George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln. But Item Idem, aka Cyril Duval, a French fashion artist, decided to infuse a bit of style into the monstrous construction. He created an LED display called Mt. Blushmore, replacing the heads of state with notable fashion figures Anna Wintour, Karl Lagerfeld, Donatella Versace, and John Galliano. And now, Colette decided to honor the artist with his own window exhibit, meaning the busts of fashion greats are on display and available for all to see. It’s fashion meets politics in the most perfectly cheeky way. [Sassybella] Keep reading »

Check This Out: Les Néréides Necklaces

It’s hard to embrace chic Parisian style without seeming cliche (hint: skip the beret and don’t even go near that Eiffel Tower-print bag in the Louvre souvenir shop). That’s why we love the necklaces from Les Néréides, which feature tiny Paris scenes on pendants. On the Café des Poètes necklace, you see a chic woman in front of a typical metro stop. The Scooter style shows a classy girl on a Vespa. And while the signature Eiffel Tower design does have France’s famous landmark worked in, it somehow manages to come off as completely … how you say … sophistiqué. [Colette.fr] Keep reading »
