Comité Colbert Gains Two New Members

French luxury association welcomes Bonpoint and Decorative Arts Museum.

FIELD OF DREAMS: The Comité Colbert, the French luxury goods association, said Thursday it had co-opted two new members, children’s clothing brand Bonpoint and the Les Arts Décoratifs in Paris, as part of its ongoing expansion. In June, the association had opened its membership to companies outside France in a bid to strengthen its bargaining position within the European Union.

Meanwhile, with spring couture week on the horizon, the Chambre Syndicale has elected hot young French designer Yiqing Yin as a guest member on the couture schedule for January. Yin, who was runner up of the 2011 ANDAM Fashion Award, presented her first runway show during couture week in July.
