Parisian boutique colette will host a show of photographs by the Chicago-born Jim Krantz in their upstairs gallery space. Krantz famously created Philip Morris’ “Marlboro Country” visuals of cowboys and horses, sunsets and deserts, of which menswear designer Adam Kimmel wanted to channel for his Spring 2010 lookbook. The rugged masculinity of the American West was just what he needed so he called in the photographer to collaborate. The shots will be on display a floor or so away from Kimmel’s clothes themselves. Running from the 4th January till 30th it will be a definite stop off for any fashion week goers in the city during this time.
