Move over ASOS, there’s a new awesome-r online store in town!
Colette, situated at rue Saint-Honore in Paris, deals in high fashion designer wear, quirky home ornaments and desirable hi-tech goods in addition to critically-acclaimed collaborations with the likes of Terry Richardson, Chevignon, Tommy Hilfiger and Casio.
As we are shopping outside Europe, we are exempted from paying the VAT tax, which results in a 20% deduction for the item of your choice.
Unfortunately, what we save on the VAT comes back to haunt us in the shape of shipping fees, which amounts to 25 Euros for deliveries to Asia. However, if you can afford such expenditure, why not invest in some Gallic charm?
While I must admit that most of colette’s items are whimsical and unnecessary as well as ludicrously priced, especially in this wretched economic climate, you can’t help but wonder at the wide array of visual eye candy that lies within this gorgeous website.
