It’s Thom Browne’s turn to put his stamp on Colette in the store’s run-up to its December closing. When Browne’s monthlong installation opens Oct. 2, it will be the fourth in the store’s series of designer takeovers.
Thom Browne will visually transform colette’s second floor personalizing the space with his signature grey color palette and mid-century design elements.
The retail installation, lasting for the entire month of October, will feature over two hundred exclusive men’s and women’s products ranging from unique runway pieces to reimagined bestsellers to new brand categories in denim, home goods, childrenswear and “Americana”-inspired novelty items.
On opening day tattoo artist Leo Gavaggio will be on site doing Browne-inspired tattoos (customers can also get non-Browne tattoos). And on Oct. 18, timed to the opening of the contemporary art fair FIAC, there will be a series of limited-edition scarves done with Maurizio Cattelan.
“I remember meeting Sarah when I first started and I was overwhelmed by her acceptance of my then small, sophomoric collection,” said Browne. “Since that time, she has always been so supportive in providing both a creative and commercial point of view.”
