The Sartorialist Exhibit at Colette!!

First I would like to say Happy 10 Year Anniversary to Sarah and everyone at Colette.

Before I started The Sartorialist I worked with and sold to hundreds of fashion boutiques around the world for over 15 years. I feel I understand what it takes to make a shopping experience special and a store truly unique and Colette is both in spades.
I am constantly amazed how they are able to keep the store so exciting and directional over such an extended amount of time. Time is usually the killer of cool but they just keep rolling along.

As you can see from my photos I spend a lot of time there and around there because it is so central to what is happening in Paris.

Well, with that said, I am proud and a little humbled to announce that I will have an exhibit of my photos at Colette this Fall in either September or October.

To show my work at Colette during that time period is like having a painting in the Louvre.

We are still working out the details but we both want it to capture the whole spectrum of style that I shoot for The Sartorialist.

I will keep you posted as new developments occur.

    Kudos Sartorialist!

    Colette is such a great place, even to look around listen good music, and watch people.

    Congratulations! I have to go to Maroc this month (quelle dommage) so I will use my layover time in Paris (double dommage) to slink over to Colette to pay homage – thanks for reminding me how great this store is. Viva Paris, forever.

    “To show my work at Colette during that time period is like having a painting in the Louvre.” — very cute and so true!

    I love your work. Any plans for a book?

    I love Colette as well. It’s so easy to get lost amongst the visual delights that store has to offer. I just love Paris, period. I’m looking forward to your exhibit!

    L’eclaireur, though not a lifestyle choices, is a good substitute for a less “fashion victim” meets “hipster” paradox. I like both. I like your photos, and Ill be at their expo.
