A pioneer in the high fashion accessories community, Colette Malouf has created haute-style hair and jewelry in her SoHo atelier since 1987. Coming from a couture family, she has an inherited appreciation for glamour which she juxtaposes with the grittiness of New York. The end result is an eclectic approach for the modern day accessories aficionado.
While attending Boston University, she dabbled in jewelry-making, selling her one-of-a-kind pieces to trendy boutiques in New York City and Boston. Upon graduation, she got her first job at Bergdorf Goodman in Manhattan, coinciding with the hair accessory that launched her career known as the Malouf Pouf.
Colette’s objet d’arts are the ultimate in design, embodying the distinctive styles of an individual. She pairs her understanding of the symbiosis between face shape, hair texture and length with a broad range of materials and innovative techniques to create pieces that are not only beautiful, but superbly crafted and functional.
Today, Colette Malouf accessories are sold around the world in renowned retail doors: Bergdorf Goodman in New York, Le Bon Marché in Paris, Tsum in Moscow, Harvey Nichols in the Middle East, along with 20 Colette Malouf branded shops in Asia.
The great granddaughter of a prominent silk harvester, her paternal family brought the caftan to the US from Lebanon, launching a luxury line of eveningwear in the 1920s.
