Fully encapsulating Hedi Slimane’s vision for the company, the renovated Saint Laurent New York Flagship boutique opened this weekend. Decorated in a 21st Century Art Deco style, the stark decor has a limited color palette of black and white and is accented with mirrors, loads of marble and touches of silver and gold. It is an elegant and restrained backdrop for the collections.
In addition to the complete renovation, the boutique added a third retail floor to bring the total square footage to 14,000. The new layout allows clients to fully experience the brand’s lifestyle with men’s and women’s products on the ground floor, then dedicated women’s and men’s floors on the second and third floors.
To celebrate the reopening, Saint Laurent exclusively released four bags from the cruise collection for early delivery to the Flagship boutique. Our elite picks are the Folk Surf Sound Small Helena Bucket Bag, $1,650, and the Prairie Surf Sound Nano Sac de Jour, $2,250. The boutique is located at 3 East 57th Street.
