The hip, lux designer label and hip, lux designer boutique link up to create a pop-up store.
paris - in an interview with womens wear daily, kate mulleavy, co-designer of rodarte said "[the collaboration with collette is an opportunity] to let people inside of our minds. it's almost as if you are in our studio." she wasn't lying. the "gallery and retail space", which will be housed for a month within colette, is something of a diary. beginning during paris fashion week, shoppers will be able to pick up kate and laura's favorite cd's, limited edition jewelry crafted by their mother and hand knit accessories created by the duo. as innovative as this concept is, am i the only one that finds it a little too personal? i'll be opting for plain old 'designed by' items from their fall/winter 2009-10 collection, which will also be available.
