 At the beginning of 2017, the most famous concept store in Paris, Colette, celebrates its 20th anniversary. To mark the occasion, the brand accompanied by the Snarkitecture collective from New-York have taken up the Museum of Decorative Arts in Paris for "The Beach". An immaculate beach bordered by a swimming pool plenty of balls, a playful and artistic rendez-vous!

After Washington, Florida and Sydney, The Beach arrives in France, a way for us to enjoy an experience we never dreamed to reliving: diving in a giant plastic balls pool, like when we were eight. We missed it ...

300,000 translucent recyclable plastic balls and prestigious guests who are ready to play ! Ines de la Fressange, Vincent Cassel, Mademoiselle Agnes, all were present to attend the official opening earlier this week. Special guests for a special brand, which in 1997, launched a new hybrid place mixing ready-made clothing shop, an exhibition place and events.
Colette made a name in the world of fashion, where we can find the trendiest brands and special collaborations with artists such as Rihanna or Pharell Williams. Especially for this event, the shop proposes a very limited edition with symbolic brands of the company.

"The Beach" is open to all and admission is free, so you can take a dip (bikini and bathing cap not required) and enjoy a festive atmosphere with a beach bar from Coca Cola. A taste of summer and a party that will surely make an impact ! Thank you Colette and happy birthday !

Winter in the tropics

Friday, February 10, 2017 12:00:49 PM CET
To avert winter blues, only one solution: to escape ! Yes but where? A short flight or several thousand kilometers away : palm trees, fine sandy beach and cocktails by the pool are waiting for you. So pack swimsuits and sunscreen, we take off!
 
 Canary Islands
 
The Canary Islands, Atlantic Ocean archipelago off the coast of Morocco is one of the most popular destinations for Europeans in winter. Cheap and enjoying a climate that is defined as "eternal spring", Tenerife, Gran Canarias, Fuerteventura and Lanzarote offer a panorama of a wide variety. Volcanic landscapes, large forests, desert, black sand creeks, the Canaries are a land of contrasts that will never cease to amaze you! Its natural resources allow multiple activities: hiking, idleness on beaches, but also discovering the cultural heritage of the different islands.
 
 
Marrakech, Morocco
 
The one nicknamed the Red City is a destination that will surely enchant you! With its colourful markets, full of flavours, its impressive mosques and mysterious palaces, it is a real sensory journey that awaits you. Between culture, gastronomy, and adventure, let yourself be driven by the unique atmosphere that surrounds this place.Explore the Sahara Desert on the back of a camel and experience the rhythm of an oriental life. You can only succumb to the charms of the so-called "Pearl of the South", its welcoming Riads , its relaxing hammams and its irresistible mint tea.
 
 
Dominican Republic
 
We escape a little further and we put our suitcases in the Dominican Republic. The first tourist destination of the Caribbean, the island is appreciated for its natural treasures and especially its long white beaches lined with coconut palms. Sun always shining, and small fishing villages make this place an authentic heaven! Charmed by the warm and festive exotic atmosphere, leave your sunbed to explore the marvels of the underwater depths where you can meet humpback whales, the mountainous terrain or the capital Santo Domingo and its fabulous colonial zone, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
 
 
Miami, Florida - USA
 
Not so far from Caribbean we flight to the USA and especially in Miami, Florida. True melting pot, communities and cultures mix together creating a pleasant and captivating atmosphere. The metropolis of the "Sunshine State" enjoys a glamorous, artistic and colourful image. Day and night lively city full of surprises, activities are diverse and varied: shopping session in the most luxurious shops on Lincoln road, sunbathing afternoon on South Beach, eating a tasty burger in a dinner on the mythical Ocean Drive, and for the more adventurous ones an exceptional ride in the Everglades National Park to meet alligators.
 
 
 Thailand
 
Let's cross the globe now and leave for Thailand, ideal destination in winter! This country with a strong identity is a guarantee of total change of scenery! With very favourable temperatures in this time, you will have the opportunity to discover the cultural and natural richness of a country full of history. Rich with its fauna and flora, Thailand offers a range of unique landscapes: jungle, reefs, wide rice fields, sandy beaches or secret islands. An opportunity to meet original wild animals. This trip is also and above all spiritual, there are many Buddhist temples that you can visit and experience the rites. Concerning the gastronomy, you will taste atypical and spicy foods!
 

 

 The Maldives

In the centre of the Atlantic Ocean, the Maldives is a dream destination, literally. Turquoise lagoon, warm and crystalline waters, immaculate sandy beaches: an amazing spot. A stay in the Maldives is often reserved for idleness but it is also an opportunity to explore the seabed populated by thousands of multicolour fish. You will also have the opportunity to discover the Maldives capital, Male, where you will enjoy traditional markets, colourful houses and many tea houses where you can taste the local cooking.
