Colette Boutique, Paris

The temple of all things hip

Since March 1997, the “Colette” concept store has been Paris’s top spot for style, fashion and design. All connoisseurs of fashion, high-tech, beauty, art, music, literature and gadgets inevitably find the most unpredictable and exclusive selection of products at Colette.

Colette discovers the trends of tomorrow around the world, in countries such as the US, England and Japan. The shop presents limited edition fashion and products from trendy designers before they are available elsewhere.

Sarah Lerfel, Colette’s owner, discovered the Washlet while visiting Japan and decided to install one in Colette’s public washrooms next to the restaurant.

Reflecting its exclusive image, the boutique has invested in TOTO's NEOREST collection. Since it has been installed, customers have been very curious and interested in this innovative WASHLET™. Even the restaurant manager noticed that customers spend more time at the toilet to try out all of the functions. The response also has been very positive, and people have asked a number of questions about the WASHLET™. Frequent travellers already familiar with this type of toilet are delighted to see it because of its superior hygiene.
