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.

They didn’t photograph the YSL campaign this season, but Inez and Vinoodh shot the cover of V Magazine‘s first music issue, starring Justin Bieber. The issue is due out January 12. [Page Six]

The PS1 that wasn’t: Proenza Schouler’s Spring 2010 sunglasses include hardware taken from the label’s best-selling PS1 bags. Baby steps to that investment piece! [Refinery29]
The new trademark of American designers? Overseas sales, of course, especially in rapidly growing markets in Asia (like China, Korea, and Singapore) and the Middle East. The world is flat, hadn’t you heard? [WWD]
Gus Van Sant corrals Madonna for Interview, where she discusses her upcoming film, her childhood inspirations, and one very famous ex-husband—the one who just happened to nab an Oscar for Van Sant’s Milk. (On Penn, Madge says: “He’s got a fire under his ass, that’s for sure. A bee in his bonnet.”) [Interview]
In case you missed it (as, we confess, we did) last week: Famed photog Bill Cunningham is finally moving out of his incredible, rent-controlled Carnegie Hall apartment. On his way out, though, he’s narrating a little video about the place. [NYT via Curbed]
Street-style photogs may be everywhere now, but at the beginning, there was one: The Times‘ Bill Cunningham, who is celebrated with a documentary at the MoMA tonight. The Times‘ appreciation is required reading for anyone who’s ever sent around a Sartorialist link. [NYT]
The Daily Beast salutes the stars who dare to dress themselves, like Diane Kruger, Marion Cotillard, and January Jones.

[The Daily Beast]
