“You will do foolish things,

but you will do them with enthusiasm…”


Colette was born in 1873

Colette at The Phipps is inspired by Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette, a French novelist, journalist, and performer.

She was born in 1873 in Burgundy, France, and became one of the leading female writers of her time. Colette is best known for her novel “Gigi,” which was published in 1944 and was later adapted into a successful play and film.

Throughout her career, Colette explored themes of sexuality, femininity, and relationships, and her writing style was known for its vivid descriptions, frankness, and sensitivity. In addition to her literary work, Colette was also a performer, appearing in cabarets and music halls. She was a trailblazer for women in French literature and continues to be celebrated for her contributions to the world of French culture and literature.
