A Store Is Born: Saint Laurent Store New York
Saint Laurent has a tony new home in New York — a remodeling, to be exact, of the Upper East Side flagship that originally opened in 2003. The new boutique, overtaking the Los Angeles outlet as the largest in the U.S., illustrates creative director Hedi Slimane’s rigorous and straight-edged retail vision for the house, a total concept that utilizes marble and brass almost exclusively.
A complement to the house’s Soho location, the renovated UES address has also added a third floor, where menswear is housed, in addition to women’s on the second floor and lifestyle on the ground floor.
