Colette will close its doors on December 20, 2017. The renowned French concept store, owned by the mother-daughter team of Colette Roussaux and Sarah Andelman, has been in operation for 20 years.

“Colette Roussaux has reached the time when she would like to take her time [to retire]; and colette cannot exist without Colette,” said the store in a statement.

“Until our last day, nothing will change,” it added. “Colette will continue to renew itself each week with exclusive collaborations and offerings, also available on our website colette.fr.”

It currently is in talks with Saint Laurent to take over its location in Rue Saint-Honoré.

“Negotiations are under way with Saint Laurent and we would be proud to have a Brand with such a history, with whom we have frequently collaborated, taking over our address. We are happy of the serious interest expressed by Saint Laurent in this project, and it could also represent a very good opportunity for our employees.”

The boutique store was founded by Roussaux in 1997, and has been led by her daughter Andelman in recent years.

A haven for fashion and streetwear enthusiasts, the store is known for carrying a wide selection of exclusive products and accessories.

Over the past 20 years, the store has worked with several influential designers and brands. They include Ronnie Fieg, Virgil Abloh, Luke Meier, as well as ASICS TIGER, Louis Vuitton, and Nike.
