Saint Laurent (formerly known as Yves Saint Laurent), is wooing Japanese customers with an expansive new store in the Omotesando District of Tokyo. Three stories high and occupying 10,000 square feet, this will be the brand’s largest store to date.
The store has adopted a linear, black and white aesthetic created through the use of white and black marble, clear glass panels and quilted black leather. The pictures are almost eerily futuristic and you would be forgiven if you thought you were seeing images of a movie set. It will certainly be an interesting experience to shop here.
The store will stock the full range apparel (for both men and women), accessories, footwear and leather goods. A range of limited-edition Saint Laurent surfboards designed by Los Angeles-based artist Lucia Ribisi will also be available at this store. With only 10 such surfboards ever created, each one is priced at $6,615.
