Colette may be closing its doors at the end of this year, but the influential Parisian boutique is determined to offer its fans the chicest fashion experiences through the last day. Today CR can reveal that the retailer's final collaboration will be with the storied French house, Saint Laurent.

Taking over the first floor of the Rue St.-Honoré store next week on November 27th, the Saint Laurent pop-up will boast a bevy of exclusive items designed by Anthony Vaccarello, including t-shirts and hoodies inspired by '80s New Wave, lighters that read 'Smoking Forever' (a reference to the famous Le Smoking tuxedo designed by Yves Saint Laurent in 1966), limited-edition YSL Beauté palettes, leather whips (!), and a 2018 calendar featuring photography by David Sims.

The true highlights of the capsule are several novelty items created in collaboration with other brands. There's an all-black Vespa and coordinating, crystal-embellished motorcycle helmet by Ruby, a Polaroid camera, Bang & Olufsen speakers, and Arkaic Concept skateboards covered with Inez & Vinoodh's recent campaign images of a model in rollerskate stilettos.

It was previously believed that Chanel would be Colette's last major partnership wrapping on November 25th, but that left almost a full month before the boutique closes its doors for good on December 20th, so we're excited to see Colette go out on a high note with such an iconically French brand.
