Following its success in San Francisco, Paris-based Cotélac recently opened a second Bay Area store—an 1,100-square-foot unit at Town & Country Village in Palo Alto. (It’s only the brand’s sixth retail location in the United States.)
“Cotélac’s designer, Raphaëlle Cavalli, has a very personal aesthetic, which is recognizably unique,” says Catherine Groener, the company’s U.S. market manager. “Her use of colors and prints, combined with a classic sense of form, makes her style timeless.”
In keeping with the signature look for the label’s interiors, which are designed by Cavalli’s brother, Vincent, the new boutique is open and minimal—allowing the bohemian-inspired apparel to be the focal point. Shoppers can find the Cotélac womenswear and menswear collections here.
