Here's what the FACEHUNTER had to say about it: "If you are in Paris this coming month, between Le Louvre and Centre Pompidou, don't forget to visit Colette. With "From the Street to the Night", the famous Parisian boutique is presenting the first global exhibition about street style and party pictures blog culture. Do you check these photographs everyday online? Enjoy to see them hanging on a wall for once..."
