The Comité Colbert welcomes three new members

Nov 20, 2015

Three new members joined the Comité Colbert, engaged in the promotion of culture and luxury. The institution "continues with its policy of welcoming up-and-coming labels", as it underlined in a press release. The Comité has recently co-opted the Maison Francis Kurkdjian, Austrian glass-making label Riedel and Greek jeweller Zolotas, strengthening the association's European voice.


The Maison Francis Kurkdjian was created in 2009 by the coming together of Francis Kurkdjian, a renowned fragrance designer, and Marc Chaya, a former associate of Ernst & Young. The label established its reputation through products that blend the French perfumery tradition with a contemporary vision. The Maison is currently present in 36 countries and nearly 400 retail outlets.

Riedel was founded in northern Bohemia more than 250 years ago, and has been a touchstone in high-end glass-making for 11 generations.

Jeweller Zolotas shares a similar historical heritage: it was founded in Athens in 1895 by Efthymios Zolotas, and has always been inspired by Greece's millennial tradition. The label established a presence in Paris in 1970.

The Comité Colbert currently groups together 81 members, 14 associate members and 6 European members.
