Esteban Cortazar x colette

Chaque année, la France invite un pays pour établir et renforcer ses relations bilatérales à travers des initiatives culturelles et artistiques. Dans la continuité des précédents partenariats avec le Vietnam et la Corée, 2017 est l’année de la Colombie.

A cette occasion, Esteban Cortazar, le créateur de mode colombien basé à Paris s’est associé à colette pour sélectionner et proposer une variété de produits colombiens, qui seront disponibles uniquement chez colette du 10 au 22 juillet. Lors de la première semaine, les 2 vitrines colette seront consacrées au projet, recréant l’esprit joyeux et typique de ces échoppes colombiennes : les ‘tienditas’. On pourra découvrir les saveurs colombiennes au water-bar, grâce à un menu spécialement réalisé par le chef colombien Carlos Peñarredonda du restaurant parisien Candelaria, à qui Esteban a demandé de participer.

Que ce soit à travers des livres d’art, des collaborations musicales, de la mode et des accessoires, des produits artisanaux ou même des bonbons typiques, la sélection éclectique d’Esteban Cortazar met l’accent sur la culture de son pays et son savoir-faire. Il fait découvrir une nouvelle génération d’artistes talentueux et de designers locaux en intégrant des éléments colombiens.

Parmi les pièces emblématiques du projet, ce livre en édition limitée de Botero publié par Assouline, une sélection de magazines de mode colombiens ou encore de beaux livres d’art. Avec le soutien de la galerie Casas Riegner, le city guide ‘Soy Bogota’ de La Officina del Doctor et Krisana McLean offre une vision pointue sur la capitale colombienne. La superstar colombienne J. Balvin a créé pour l’occasion un sweat à capuche original et proposera sa sélection musicale lors du lancement le 10 juillet. Les chaises tissées de l’artiste Ramon Laserna viendront ponctuer l’espace chez colette avec d’autres meubles tout aussi colorés. Parmi les objets souvenirs typiques proposés par Artesanias de Colombia, des sacs en tissu seront imprimés à partir d’illustrations du père d’Esteban Cortazar, l’artiste Valentino Cortazar.

Voici quelques-unes des créations des artistes et designers choisis par Esteban: les chaussettes amusantes Loopzu co-signées Esteban Cortazar, les boucles-bijoux Paula Mendoza, les sacs à main fruités de Nancy Gonzalez, les lampes de tables d’Hunting Season, les accessoires faits à la main des communautés indigènes Wayuu et Kuna, les pochettes Mola Sasa, les boucles d’oreilles de Casa Chiqui et de Mercedes Salazar, ainsi que les bijoux de tête ‘Magnetic Midnight’, la marque développée par Lucia Echavarria et des artisans locaux.

Le travail d’Esteban Cortazar sera également représenté à travers une série de robes à volant en néoprène, disponibles dans plusieurs coloris. Ce sera aussi le lancement de la toute première ligne de sportswear Esteban Cortazar, produite en Colombie par la marque SevenSeven et composée de pièces unisexes comme des sweats à capuche, des t-shirts et des casquettes imprimés d’images iconiques et de messages inspirés de la culture pop colombienne.

Enfin, Esteban Cortazar a invité des designers basés à Paris comme la créatrice de bijoux Yaz Bukey et la marque de skateboards ‘We Dare Paris’ pour revisiter leurs objets de prédilection à partir de leur vision de la Colombie.

En marge de ce projet avec colette et sous l’impulsion de l’Institut de France, Esteban Cortazar a créé un sac en tissu réinterprétant un imprimé colombien typique pour célébrer cette année 2017 de la Colombie.

Every year, France invites a non-neighboring country to establish and strengthen bilateral relations by sharing and organizing cultural and artistic initiatives. Following previous partnerships with Vietnam and Korea, 2017 is being recognized as the year of Colombia.

To celebrate this occasion, the Colombian Paris-based designer Esteban Cortazar has partnered with colette to curate and showcase a variety of products from Colombia, available exclusively at colette from July 10th until July 22nd. For the first week, colette will dedicate its two large front windows to the project, recreating a typical Colombian tiendita (local shop). Colombian flavor will permeate colette’s water-bar where Cortazar will collaborate with buzzy Parisian restaurant Candelaria and Colombian chef, Carlos Peñarredonda, to dream up a special menu of typical Colombian dishes for the duration of the project.

Comprising art books, music, clothing, accessories, artisanal products, and even local sweets, the selection curated by Cortazar sheds a strong spotlight on Colombian culture, craftsmanship, and a new generation of talented artists and designers. The idea is to integrate pieces that are unmistakably Colombian into the ultimate Parisian retail destination.

 

Among the standout items: An exquisite Botero limited-edition book published by Assouline along with other fashion magazines and Colombian coffee table books. Soy Bogotá by La Oficina del Doctor and Kristina McLean with the support of contemporary art gallery Casas Riegner offers a sleek insider’s guide to the country’s capital. Worldwide music superstar J Balvin has created a unique hoodie for the occasion and will take over the music section of the boutique for the launch. Vibrant woven chairs from local furniture designer Ramon Laserna will punctuate the store space with additional flare. And alongside charming keepsakes from Artesanias de Colombia will be canvas totes printed with illustrations by Cortazar’s father, artist Valentino Cortazar.

The selection from Colombian fashion designers and artists includes playful socks made by Loopzu in collaboraton with Cortazar, Paula Mendoza’s distinctive circular jewelry; Nancy Gonzalez colorful handbags; table lighters by Hunting Season; striking handcrafted accessories from the Wayuu and Kuna indigenous communities; updated traditional accessories from designers Mola Sasa, Casa Chiqui, and Mercedes Salazar; and the flamboyant headpieces from Magnetic Midnight, a line developed by Lucia Echavarria and local artisans.

Cortazar’s work will be represented through a series of his signature Neoprene-hemmed ruffle dresses available in various bright colors. The occasion also marks the debut of his sportswear range produced in Colombia by local brand SevenSeven, which consists of unisex pieces such as hoodies, T-shirts and caps, featuring iconic Colombian pop imagery and messaging.

Finally, Cortazar invited Paris-based designers such as Yaz Bukey and We Dare Paris skateboards to realize their vision of Colombia through the conception of inspired items.

Beyond colette, as part of the programming overseen by the Institut de France, Cortazar has designed a canvas tote fronted with a stylized Colombian motif.
