Saint Laurent just opened a New York flagship in SoHo today at 80 Greene Street. Under the direction of Hedi Slimane, the 4,000 square foot store features an interior concept envisioned by the mastermind himself. The interior houses the original ceiling and columns of the Greene Street Building, complemented with iconic Saint Laurent materials like black “noir soie” and white “blanc statuaire” matt finish marble. For many, marble might conjure antiquity. But Hedi Slimane has put the majestic material to thoroughly contemporary use in the new Saint Laurent Paris flagship store. Dotted throughout the store is antique furniture, personally acquired by Slimane, from early-20th-century masters — including a 1935 daybed by Jean Prouvé, metal armchairs by Jules Leleu, an oak tabouret by Pierre Legrain and a pair of Lattenstuhl chaises by Marcel Breuer — all of which speak to the heritage of the company that Yves Saint Laurent founded more than half a century ago.
