Fifteen Years Of Colette In 150 One-Eyed Collaborators
Sarah Andelman’s pathbreaking Paris boutique Colette celebrates its 15th anniversary this year, and the fêtes are already well under way. The crowning bash will be an enormous carnival in the Tuileries, with booths and stalls by the store’s friends and vendors. But before that, Andelman turned to illustrator Craig Redman, creator of the cult-followed blog Darcel Disappoints, with whom she’s collaborated on everything from merchandise to Christmas cards over the years. (Style.com fans may remember Darcel as the hero of our Paris map in the first issue of Style.com/Print.) Redman set out to illustrate 150 of Colette’s fans and supporters, Darcel-ized. The exhibition, 150/15, opens today at the store and runs through March 31.
In honor of the event, we asked Andelman to select five of her favorites from the show. Click here to see her picks and her comments, or hit play above to watch a preview teaser Redman created. And if you do make it to Colette, keep an eye out for Style.com’s own Tim Blanks and Tommy Ton illustrated among the madding crowd.
150/15 runs through March 31 at Colette, 213 Rue Saint-Honoré, Paris, www.colette.fr.
