Saint Laurent opens its largest store at the iconic Champs-Élysées

Saint Laurent recently opened its largest flagship housed in a historic building on the iconic avenue des Champs-Élysées in Paris. “I wanted to realise one of Yves Saint Laurent’s wishes when he arrived in Paris and said he wanted his name to be written in fiery letters on the Champs-Élysées.” says Anthony Vaccarello, Creative Director of Yves Saint Laurent.

With this new boutique, Vaccarello introduces an entirely new design concept that celebrates the essence of the building’s original architectural elements, while instilling a sense of discovery with an interpretation of modern luxury. The striking, luminous interior features a series of unique spaces that flow naturally; there’s a tension between rough textures and precise details, with thoughtful design guides for visitors to explore the vast boutique, while products are showcased on marble displays.

Saint Laurent’s complete offering will be available at the Champs-Élysées boutique, including men’s and women’s ready-to-wear, handbags, shoes, accessories, and fine jewellery. A special assortment of items has also been curated for the space, reflecting its elevated nature. See the rest of the new boutique’s interior here:
