Where New York's energetic graffiti meets quiet Parisian simplicity

Hermès is to the salamander orange, what Tiffany is to, well, the Tiffany blue and a certain fictional but iconic Elle Woods is to bubblegum pink. Lesser known though equally canonical is Colette's relationship with cobalt blue. 

While the history of Colette's association with cobalt may be unclear, the commitment of the multi-label boutique (standing on the corner of Rue Saint Honoré) to the electric hue is perennial.
