News: Saint Laurent has opened the doors to its new flagship store in Paris, the first to be designed by Hedi Slimane since he became creative director of the fashion house last year.
Located on Avenue Montaigne near the Champs-Élysées, the art deco-inspired Saint Laurent store features a marble staircase encased by rods of nickel-plated brass.
Black and white marble has been used for the walls, floors and a row of shelves, above which hang nickel-plated bars for displaying clothes.
The monochrome interior is reflected in the black and white photographs accompanying the opening of the store.
Formerly known as Yves Saint Laurent, after its founder, the fashion house's name was changed soon after Slimane took over as creative director last spring.
Saint Laurent's Sloane Street concept store in London is set to open in the autumn.
Other fashion boutiques we've featured lately include a shop in Warsaw with an upside-down living room on its ceiling and a Milan boutique featuring glass silhouettes of male and female figures – see all shops on Dezeen.
