As I’ve said before, a trip to Paris isn’t complete without a tour of Colette. My recent excursion to the concept boutique was a bit overwhelming, even though I knew the three-floor sanctuary of style was going to be massive.

Sadly, photography isn’t allowed inside the store, but I did manage to take some shots of the exterior. Here’s a closer look at the window display of limited edition mariner-themed apparel to celebrate their latest collaboration with Nike, saluting the French Football Federation:
