Colombia will be very present in France when next month the famous Parisian boutique Colette opens an exhibition of products from that land presented in what it wants to look like a replica of a typical store in the South American country.

This interesting project was devised by the talented Colombian designer Esteban Cortázar, whose beautiful designs are known throughout the world thanks to his work at the fashion house of Emanuel Ungaro and now with his namesake line.

"Extremely excited to announce Colette x Esteban x Colombia," wrote the artist along with a video posted on his Instagram page.

The exhibition, which will be in said venue from July 10 to 22, is exhibited just when the year of Colombia is celebrated in France, an initiative around which different activities will be carried out, first in Colombia -from January to July- and then in France -from July to December- and through which it seeks to support the country's profound transformation and its effort to project itself internationally.

"[Everything] happened in the most spontaneous way," Cortázar told a publication. “When I realized that it was the year of Colombia in France, I had to do something for my country. I wanted to have a good selection of things: accessories, books, food, sweets, fashion and decoration.”

For the occasion the singer J. Balvin designed a hoodie in collaboration with Cortazar and the Seven Seven brand and it was made, of course, in Colombia. In addition, the restaurant inside the store collaborated with Colombian chef Carlos Peñarredonda to create a menu with typical dishes from the beautiful country.

Designers from that land such as Nancy González and Mercedes Salazar will also participate, as will brands like Wayuu and Kuna.

"There is a new generation of [artists] who are creating their own companies," explains the designer. "I wanted to give them an opportunity that they naturally would not have, to allow them to stay in this store (Colette) if things are going well."
