Apple Watch May Headline Fashion Boutique Colette's 'One Day Only Experience' Tomorrow [Updated]

Apple and Parisian fashion boutique Colette are preparing a "one day only experience" on September 30, reports French blog Macplus [Google Translate]. Showcased on Colette's website, the event will be held from 11:00 AM to 7:00 PM local time at the retailer's gallery on rue Saint-Honoré in Paris.

Information on what will be shown during the one-day event has not been revealed, but hints from the invitation and Colette's own fashion focus suggest the Apple Watch will be the highlight. The pattern of dots on the promotional image appears very similar to the zoomed-out home screen of the Apple Watch, with each dot representing an app icon.

Apple unveiled the Apple Watch earlier this month alongside the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus. The smartwatch will be available in a variety of configurations, including a high-fashion Edition collection that features an 18-karat gold casing and sapphire crystal display and a Sport collection for fitness enthusiasts. Apple is targeting an early 2015 launch, but the company will reportedly be hard-pressed to make the device available to the public in time for February's Valentine's Day holiday.

Update 8:55 AM: As noted by forum member Rogifan, Apple industrial design team member Mikael Silvanto has posted several photos on his Instagram account yesterday documenting his trip to Paris for Paris Fashion Week. In one photo, a member of the team is shown wearing Apple Watch at a meal, while another photo taken onboard the plane en route to Paris may show Jony Ive and Marc Newson in the background.

Update: Silvanto has made his Instagram photos private.

I found it amusing that the photo of someone with a beer in their hand a cigarette handing from their mouth was just above this threads title.

Ah so that's why some of Apple's designers were posting photos about attending Paris Fashion Week on Instagram. Looks like Ive and Newson might be there as well judging by the private plane they're flying on. And one of the designers is wearing the stainless steel :apple:Watch.

My interest in the Apple Watch is still well below 1%.

I hope they make it work -- I really do -- I just don't see it happening any time soon. Old school mechanical watches FTW!

The invite also says, "Colette and Apple invite you to a one day only experience." I think that might be a better hint than the dots.

Maybe I just don't get fashion, but this is the kind of stuff that Colette sells?

Tech geeks are going to HATE that Apple understands a watch does NOT have to be just a toy for tech geeks to show each other. Even with a computer inside, it can still be a watch, in the watch market--and that means approaching it very differently from the geek toy market. Tech geeks will NOT grasp that approach. They care about specs, and Apple has given us none. They do NOT care about fashion marketing, which Apple realizes is vital. Why else sell high-end versions where most of the cost is the gold alone? They won't sell in volume. But without them, they won't be taken seriously by a market that geeks think should be ignored, but Apple knows cannot be--when it comes to something you wear. Mission accomplished: the fashion and watch worlds ARE taking the Apple Watch seriously, because Apple has chosen to take them seriously. I can't stand the fashion world--but I can see that it's a "necessary evil" here. Few tech companies would see that.

Not sure if the cigarette or the watch makes him look like a bigger moron. Eh, let's call it a tie.
