After the likes of Balenciaga, a personal selection by Lucien Pagès, Sacai, Thom Browne and Chanel, it is now the turn of Saint Laurent to set up shop at Parisian concept store Colette. "From 27th November to 20th December, the Parisian label will take over the store's first floor with a unique collection," wrote Colette in a press release.

The Kering group label will be the last guest to grace Colette's first floor, as the renowned concept store will close down on 20th December.

Saint Laurent may soon be retracing its footsteps however: the label is about to take over Colette's prestigious premises, located at number 213 on uber-chic rue Saint-Honoré. According to our sources, the deal is expected to be sealed shortly, and will be announced immediately afterwards.

A lighter, a calendar, a make-up palette, a vinyl compilation and more. For the label's special event at Colette, Saint Laurent's Creative Director Anthony Vaccarello has dreamed up an idiosyncratic collection full of eclectic items, featuring something special for everyone.

It includes rock-inspired t-shirts and sweatshirts, accessories like handbags and clutches, and a series of collector's items created in collaboration with well-known partners.

Among them, a vintage Polaroid camera, helmets by Ruby inlaid with crystals, B&O Play headphones and loudspeakers by Bang & Olufsen, Arkaic Concept skateboards, silvered-metal pencil holders by Christofle and chocolate confectionery by Pierre Marcolini.

The icing on the cake will be a black Saint Laurent Vespa, a limited-edition version available exclusively at Colette ... until the store closes down.
