Alice Colin is bringing a touch of je ne sais quoi to Studio Shoppe! Originally from Bordeaux, France, Alice studied, worked and lived in many countries including India, Spain, Italy and England, before landing in Charleston two years ago with her husband and her son.
Fashion and design are her true passion and raison d’être, so, after years of working in marketing and business development for the big brands, Alice launched her own boutique and concept store, GALANTE!
GALANTE (formerly Made en France) offers a curated collection of luxury apparel and accessories. Alice enjoys discovering independent French designers who champion sustainability in their production practices. Their entrepreneurial spirit and experience learned from working for some of the most respected fashion houses (Chanel, Hermes, Givenchy, Balmain and Dior, to name a few) are what entices her to work with them. Just like Alice and the ladies of Studio Shoppe, these young designers are taking the leap to establish themselves and share their designs with collectors around the world.
Furthermore, Alice creates chic high fashion paintings to compliment the unique pieces in her boutique. Using various mediums, from digital to recycled newspaper to canvas, she plays with texture and colors to produce one-of-a-kind artwork. You can follow her at @alicecolin_art.
Alice looks forward to welcoming you into her petite boutique where you can browse unique handmade pieces while listening to old french music, and, on occasion, drinking a glass of Champagne…
