You know Saint Laurent, and their creative director, Hedi Slimane, for pushing boundaries when it comes to edgy, rock ‘n’ roll-esque fashion, but how about their association with, of all things, glitzy casinos and the iconic slot machine? It seems like the brand’s taking a gamble here, but we’d say they’re pushing all the right buttons, what with a towering slot machine installation piece that makes an unusual kitschy-cool display for their accessories.
And this time, we can witness it in real life, at the Saint Laurent ION Boutique, from this Friday (Jan 15). Specially flown in from Paris, this display is usually only placed in the most exclusive boutiques, including Singapore, Hong Kong, New York, Paris, London and more; it will be with us for two months. Just as well, the slot machine here will debut three new mini handbags that are only available at the boutique. These are: the Saint Laurent Baby Chain Prairie ($2,290), Saint Laurent Baby College Black ($2, 490), and the Saint Laurent Baby College Camouflage ($2, 550).
