Colette, the legendary Parisian concept store, closes for good December 20 after 20 years in business.

Just days before it closes its doors for good on December 20, Colette has invited Saint Laurent to take over the first floor of the legendary Parisian concept store, located at 213 rue Saint-Honoré. A selection of collectible creations by Anthony Vaccarello for Saint Laurent are now on sale exclusively in store.

A host of luxury labels have taken over the first floor of Colette in recent weeks, bidding farewell to the French capital's iconic concept store. After Balenciaga, Thom Browne and, more recently, Chanel, Saint Laurent is the latest fashion house invited into 213 rue Saint-Honoré -- an address synonymous with the store for the last two decades. The luxury label will be Colette's final guest star -- a symbolic choice, since Saint Laurent will take over the premises after the store closes.

The world of Saint Laurent will be showcased on the first floor of the Parisian concept store from November 27 to December 20, with a selection of collector's objects created by Anthony Vaccarello, creative director of the French fashion house.

As well as a selection of T-shirts, hooded sweaters and leather goods channeling rock ‘n' roll vibes, visitors to the concept store can admire a customized vintage Polaroid SX-70, a calendar, exclusive makeup palettes, Pierre Marcolini chocolates and desserts, a vinyl compilation, Baccarat crystal goods, motorcycle helmets by Ruby, and -- the centerpiece -- an all-black Saint Laurent Vespa.
