ALL IS FAIR: More than 20,000 people streamed through a giant tent in the Tuileries in Paris over the weekend as Colette celebrated its 15th anniversary with a child-friendly indoor carnival. Kids and teens feasted on mini cupcakes and chocolate-smeared Poilâne bread — and then burnt off the sugar rush by playing table tennis, bowling and basketball. The hip boutique invited a host of brands — from Comme des Garcons and Clarins to Lacoste — to set up stands, and everything from T-shirts to timepieces were available for purchase. Festivities climaxed on Sunday with a book signing by Jean-Charles de Castelbajac and a Nike-sponsored dance class.
