For the month of October, Rodarte designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy will team up with Colette to create a retail space and gallery located on the second floor with the gallery to be unveiled during Paris Fashion Week. The monthlong space will be offering a selection of their fall designs alongside objets d’art and some other favorite pieces they curated for the occasion, according to WWD. Expect CDs of their favorite music to DVDs of 25 or so of their favorite horror flicks, books, stuffed animals, a limited edition jewelry created by their mother, and asked some of their friends and people whose work inspires them to design things. Colette will also exclusively sell Rodarte’s marbled ballet flats, which the duo created in collaboration with Repetto.
Mulleavy said the project served as an opportunity “to let people inside of our minds. It’s almost as if you are in our studio. Colette is such an amazing store because it is always changing and challenging the landscape, especially of retail,” Mulleavy said.
I wish I can take a trip to Paris and visit Colette, soon…I hope! Definitely worth a trip!
