COLONNA’S NEXT ACT: Jean Colonna, the Paris-based designer who rose to prominence in the Nineties before winding down his label in 2003, is the latest guest set to take over 2eme Bureau’s Le Petit Endroit ephemeral store in Paris’ Marais district this month. Describing his collection as a seasonless continuation of his past work, Colonna will be peddling a range of handmade knits, including waistcoats, leggings and oversize T-shirts, as well as a line of delicate, limited edition pieces handmade from silk, cashmere and wool. “This is part of a new story for me,” said Colonna, who next year plans to show in various spaces around France such as art galleries, folding in new creations — and new takes on old ones — along the way. “I like the notion of liberty and having a bit of fun, that my clothes be regarded as universal rather than attached to a season,” he said.
