Saint Laurent closing Paris flagship in August for renovations

Posted on

According to reports in WWD, creative director Hedi Slimane wishes to alter a number of design elements including the black concrete floor.  

The store was first opened in May in time to introduce Slimane’s new architectural vision for the brand (lots of black and white marble, and sleek mirrored elements). The closure is intended to allow the work to be done ahead of the fashion shows in September: “August’s typically calmer pace allowed for an opportunity to finalize and perfect the space for the beginning of the season,” said a spokesperson for the brand. 

The move won’t shock Parisian customers who are used to the city closing down for business during the traditional holiday period in August, but might surprise a few luxury-loving foreign visitors in town for the summer.
