I'm not sure why it took me so long to realize that Colette is the coolest daytime address in Paris. Seriously now. Stop by around closing time and check out the crowd. The kids who hang out here represent a range of styles, but they all wear their clothes with bravery. Perhaps this is the place to spot trends before they actually trend. The shop itself is pretty brilliant- (think designer Urban Outfitters) with a fun clubby vibe and great music and book selections to browse.
One afternoon I loafed around with the cool kids... here is a glimpse.
