Want to treat yourself, or that someone special? We have prepared many surprises fo you …
We know #CosetteGirls (or none of us) need an excuse to celebrate, well… ourselves. That said, we can’t help but jump on any opportunity to paint the town Red and celebrate this Valentine’s Day with a special offer, bien sûr.
Whomever you want to treat – we have a long list of designer items that are just waiting to be loved. And this Valentine’s Day is all about the bags you’ll love forever.
All the Cosette Team is wishing you a Happy New Year – and a Happy Lunar Year.
Let us just start by saying: “Thank you for another great year!”
In 2020 we look forward to continuing to bring you the most coveted fashion items, from bags, sunglasses, small leather goods or ready-to-wear – still at the best price.
While we will continue to offer you the all-time best-sellers like Saint Laurent Sac de jour or the Gucci Marmont, to name a few, we have bags full of new surprises and we’re so excited to show you what’s coming!
But for now, let’s highlight our favourite events of 2019
We opened a Pop-Up store in Martin Place to make it even easier to shop that it-bag to compliment any wardrobe or occasion for any season.
We became the Official Eyewear Outlet for the Safilo Group which gives us (and you) access to the latest season releases ofDior, Fendi and Givenchy Sunglasses (with the best price guarantee)
As part of our most recent ready-to-wear selection, we also brought you the newest See By Chloé for the first time at Cosette – mixing classic aesthetics with modern floral prints.
Duty & Tax Free Shopping – Cosette The Rocks (DFS)
Our Flagship store in The Rocks now offers Duty Free Shopping! We are now officially accredited as one of only 4 Duty-Free off-airport stores in NSW – providing visiting customers an even greater shopping experience.
Just arrived: our own little Cosette #cosettegirls branded cotton tote bags you can use and reuse for your next purchases or simply rock with a casual look or at the beach -so we are always with you in the best moments!
We partnered with various stylists, influencers, and celebrities to perfect their red carpet looks or other important key events to attend with our bags collection so they could share it and inspire you for your own personal events, night outs or celebration parties.
On a more creative side: Our first Cosette SS20photoshoot campaign was a massive success with model Renee Murden photographed by talented Ren Pidgeon from DLM Australia agency with H&MU perfected by Helen Samaryan. It definitely reinforced our branding, but more importantly our connection with you all.
The launch of our #CosetteGirls hashtag stands for: the effortless style of the Australian fashionista rocking a Parisian elegance. It unquestionably brought us closer to you.
Still with the hashtags: Our #CosetteChristmas, last event of the year hosted in our flagship store in Sydney. We celebrated in music -and in style- with Laurent-Perrier Champagne, Santa Vittoria water, Petaluma wines, The Blonde Butler macarons, Hermetica flower wall, all presented together by our lovely Portobello PR.
Finally, we have widened our range of brands we carry, carefully selected by our picky but always on-trend buyers following or based on all of your personal requests.
We also have a whole new selection of basics/timeless Ready-To-Wear made from the finest materials that will be dropped and available in our stores in the coming months! So stay tuned. But Shhhh! It’s a secret…
As you can see, you can trust that for 2020 we are aiming for more, for better, and we will do everything to make your wishlist dreams come true!
Cheers to a new decade! All in style, Cosette style.
Following and taking into account the trends of the moment, we have new products arriving every 2-3 weeks to keep our customers happy, responding to their on-going demand.
…But where do our bags come from?
Being well aware of the difficulties Multi-Brand stores can encounter, we are thriving in always giving you certainty of the authenticity of what you buy. We are well aware of the massive gap there was between the styles you could find in big fashion capital cities and the ones available in Australia. As a result, our buying team is working hard and dedicating its time in sourcing the best of the best including in season, best-sellers, capsule collections and runaway items. All of our products are coming all the way from Europe, mostly from France and Italy, as we take advantage of the opposite seasons by complying with the Australian Parallel Import law.
Now well established within the local Australian market and in all the APAC region, we really pride ourselves with the origin of our products. Most of the time, the majority of our products are quite limited in quantity, but we love offering the ability to provide our customers with so many choices. We are pleased to announce that we are the official outlet for the Safilo group which englobes sunglasses brands such as Dior, Fendi or Givenchy -to name a few.
Being a Multi brand, and positioning ourselves as an affordable high end fashion retailer, we aim to bring to our clients the most genuine products as we believe luxury should have its place in everyone’s closet. Thus, we are strongly fighting against all sorts of fakes and other counterfeit items. Our recently acquired DFS license (Duty Free Store) means that all of our stock and suppliers undergo a thorough check by the Australian Border force itself.
Our best advice when getting a new designer bag is: if you don’t plan on getting your bag from the original store, you should get it from reputable resellers that have the ability to provide you with some authenticity papers from trusted third parties.
Cosette has been working for a number of years with Artificial Intelligence system Entrupy that guarantees the authenticity of all of our products. When purchasing at Cosette, you are entitled to ask us to provide you with you own bag’s Entrupy certificate. As a result, you should never be left with any doubt and be certain of the provenance of any of your purchases.
We are always here to help answer your enquiries. Don’t hesitate to contact our lovely customer service or to meet our lovely staff in-store if you are based in Sydney and have any questions.
Every fashion addict loves Chloé bags. Classy styles, fancy materials and signature details: this is all we expect from our designer pieces.
Chloé’s Spring-Summer and Fall 2017 collections that just arrived at Cosette do not make exceptions.
So, what will be the most-coveted bags this season?
Chloé Faye shoulder bag

CHLOÉ FAYE GRAINED LEATHER SHOULDER BAG
Chloé’s iconic Faye shoulder bag is probably THE must have this season. It has been developed in a variety of sizes, materials and colours so that everyone can find their own.
If we trust the gorgeous Olivia Culpo and Chrissy Teigen, we should go for a medium size and a caramel colour. We cannot disagree with them: this shade of brown matches every outfit, and this not-too-small-not-too-big size is adapted for an everyday use. Little bonus: the shoulder strap can be removed to turn this shoulder bag into a fancy clutch 😉

CHLOÉ MINI FAYE SMOOTH AND SUEDE LEATHER BACKPACK
Whether you are a traveller like Aimee Song, or an active city-dweller like Alessandra Ambrosio, the Mini Faye backpack is ideal for one who needs to feel as free as stylish.
Its compact size makes it easy to carry, and yet, its unique compartment is roomy enough to fit all your daily essentials. This bag can be carried in the back, but also on the arm thanks to a removable top handle. And as convenience can rhyme with elegance, this little beauty combines refined details such as a Suede leather flap and Chloé’s signature hoop and chain closure.

Chloé Drew shoulder bag

CHLOÉ SMALL DREW GRAINED LEATHER SHOULDER BAG
The Drew is probably Chloé’s most popular bag from a while now (Sincerely Jules and Olivia Culpo are just random examples amongst all fashion icons who got charmed), and however we can’t get enough of it.
We love the combination of a simple round shape and flap with glamorous gold details. In the latest version of this bag, the chain strap is linked so you can either carry it on the shoulder with double chain or on cross-body with single chain. For that reason, we even love it more!
What better way to finish your week than with #SaintLaurent most-coveted handbags? This season’s New Arrivals see timeless elegance and sophisticated-boho attitude. We have curated the most coveted pieces from the Spring-Summer 2017, where luxury encounters revolutionary casual styles.
If you desire a handbag to elevate any of your outfits, don’t look any further, the Saint Laurent Monogramme Fetish is the one for you. Its rebel-chic feel will take you from work to play with a subversive cool attitude.
You may already know this satchel in Suede, but we personally had a coup de coeur for the Nappa leather one. Nappa is a premium-grade full grain leather – here 100% calfskin – that has been tanned and drummed to give as a result a strong and durable material with a soft feel.
We love its shiny gold color, on which iconic YSL ‘monogram’ logo stands out, raised in a matching gold-toned metal. To contrast with this glamorous-gleaming body, the shoulder strap is made of a very simple knotted lustrous-black rope. It crosses under the bag’s flap and spans it with an eyeleted topstich design, finishing with a hanging Saint Laurent’s signature tassel.
The Medium size of this satchel is perfect to fit a wallet, a phone and a few beauty products for a light touch-up during a late-night outing. The bag’s interior is lined in black Suede leather and split into two main compartments and a card slot.
Care tips: To keep your bag bright and glossy, be careful not to use aggressive products such as solvent near the item: it could matifiy the shiny leather finish in case of contact. It is also recommended to always lay your leather bag on a soft – or at least plain – surface (and obviously never on the floor) to limit the risks of abrasion and scratching.
In the latest style orientations taken by Hedi Slimane, and followed by Anthony Vaccarello, we notice a strong retro feel, as a tribute to the past of Saint Laurent couture house. The bag’s collections are no exception, with some of their designs directly inspired from the house’s archives, such as the Small Y Studs Bucket bag, a modern version of a Saint Laurent’s 1970s style.
With a Fox brown supple Suede body and tasseled drawstring ties, this bag carries a bohemian, free-spirited mood.
Suede leather indicates the underside of the skin (for this bag, calfskin) that is buffed and brushed to bring up a napped, fine-velvet-like finish with a very soft touch. As it does not include the tough exterior skin layer, the Suede leather is also very light, thin and pliable.
On this bag, the Suede leather body is embellished with antique-gold toned studs, shaping a large Y letter on the front and a row of smaller ones on the bottom, as a discreet hint to the house creator’s initials. The YSL signature also appears as a metal charm comprised in one of the tassels.
The Small Bucket shape of this bag is very convenient to store your everyday goods in a large, unique compartment. The grosgrain lining makes this bag resistant, despite the delicateness of the leather.
Thanks to the adjustable shoulder strap, you are free to sling the bag over your shoulder or carry it cross-body.
Care tips: Due to its textured nature, the Suede leather will slightly change over time and gain character – just like good wine. If you want to keep it brand new for a longer time, it is better to avoid prolonged exposure to the sun. Also be careful with rain and other liquids that can be absorbed by the open pores of this leather. A Suede eraser can be used to clean stains or refresh darkened zones (handles, bottom, etc), always after being tested on a small hidden part of the bag.

Exciting times! Prada handbags have just arrived at COSETTE 😀
Let’s get to know the ins and outs of Prada’s latest bags collection, with a close-up on our 3 favourites.
Let’s begin with a very distinguishable piece from the Prada Pre-Fall 2017: the Cahier bag, made of 100% Madras Goat Leather. The Madras leather is a light and soft type of goatskin, obtained by special finishing procedures, secret techniques of Prada House. We adore the feel of it, but we love even more the retro design of the Cahier, part of the Fil Rouge and ‘nonconformist’ positioning of the collection.
Everything about this bag takes inspiration in antique books. Its notebook shape – of course – but also its beautiful embellishment with contrasting floral embroidery, emphasized with a lace closure on the front. We can’t help but notice the vintage finish of its bronze hardware and raised lettering, a pure delight for the eyes.
Last but not least, the exquisite embellished shoulder strap is detachable, taking you easily from day to night. Its compact yet roomy size won’t let you down either as the two main leather-finished compartments will fit all your lady-like essentials. So perfect!
Care Tips: To maintain your Madras Goat leather Cahier bag in brand-new condition, be careful not to snag the embroidery fabric on a sharp or rough object. If you would like to clean it, please only use a dry cloth, as leather-care products may damage the hardware.

Because a Prada review wouldn’t be complete without an Iconic Saffiano tote, I have chose to introduce the timeless Saffiano and City Calf leather Bibliothèque Bag. Its name (‘bookshelf’ in French) is inspired by the bag’s elegant concertina sides, as their shapes remind the book’s edges aligned on a shelf.
‘Saffiano’ refers to the designer’s signature leather finish: the highest quality calfskin is coated with wax and pressed by a machine with a crosshatch print to create this unique and durable texture. On this staple Prada bag, the Saffiano leather body is combined with smooth City calf leather sides and handles to make it soft and pleasant in hand.
The Prada Bibliothèque is a perfect all-purpose bag: with a classic and ageless black-and-white style, it can be carried by the handles as a classy handbag, or more practically on the shoulder thanks to the thin removable shoulder strap. Its size is also adaptable as the concertina-shaped sides can be expanded or reduced by using snap tabs.
The bag’s interior is divided into three compartments. The two main ones are opened while the middle one is secured with a concealed magnetic tap flap closure. The lining is 100% made of black Nappa leather, contrasting with the whiteness of the bag’s exterior and the gold colour of the raised designer lettering. A true beauty.
Care Tips: Saffiano leather is very easy to take care of, as its texture is naturally resistant to stains and scratches. If it needs to be cleaned, just wipe it with a soft cloth to gently remove dust and dirt. Saffiano leather has the particularly to be water repellent, but it is always better for the bag to use a dry cloth rather than a wet one.

The Esplanade Zig Zag bag will bring a refreshing sport and cute accent, with a great colour scheme to any outfit. Once again, Miuccia Prada played with a tactile combination of textures, adorning the City calf leather body with Saffiano details.
This is a “have-fun-handbag” on which you can remove or not the accessories it caries (shoulder strap, key-ring clochette, ID hang tag, designer-branded lock) but the most playful part would be adding your own charms (we love the Fendi Peekaboos) to match its Zig-Zag pattern and Prada-logo-lining at its best. An absolute statement.
Care tips: Always keep in mind that calfskin is water resistant but not waterproof. If you would like to use some leather cleaning, conditioning or protecting products on your bag, don’t forget to ask a professional to advise you according to the leather type. Plus, never try a new product directly on the item. You may use the leather swatch provided with the authenticity documents or test it on a small hidden corner of the handbag.

I am delighted to introduce one of my favourite brands which my girlfriends and I have been wearing in Paris since its debut: IRO.
Founded in 2005 by Parisian brothers Laurent and Arik Bitton, IRO is since bringing “the essence of music to Fashion” for the assertive and cool women.
Unapologetically bold and Rock’n Roll in their approach, the two designers spread nonchalant vibes with a vintage feel that creates the brand’s signature.
I absolutely adore! And I’m not the only one as Kate Moss, Gwyneth Paltrow, Scarlett Johansson, Drew Barrimore, Karlie Kloss, Gigi Hadid & Hailey Baldwin are frequently spotted wearing iconic IRO pieces.
Wether you’re headed to an exhibition, a dinner with your girls or to a stylish concert, get in touch with your wild side.
In case you’d be tempted, the whole collection is now available in our 3 boutiques.
‘It’s all about the attitude. At the end of the day, everybody wants to seduce someone, be loved by someone, and be socialised, in one way or another.’
At COSETTE, new season means new collection. To welcome the arrival of winter properly, we gave our stores a little face-lift.
Wools, cashmere, fur and leather pieces are waiting for you to wrap in. And to adorn your warm winter outfits, you can always find the best matching designer bags – or should you find the best winter outfit to match your designer bag?
Let me share with you some pictures of our Double Bay boutique.
I love the area around (oh hey Pelicano!) as much as the store’s sunny location. When sunrays cross the windows and light up the boutique, it reminds me that it is now summertime in Paris – feeling beautiful!
Yes, we do love pink 🙂
Sweet, soft and rock-n-roll!
Céline, Givenchy and Isabel Marant
