Since Hedi Slimane returned to Saint Laurent as creative director a number of changes and developments have been made and the opening of the new New York store further emphasises the shift in focus. Opening in Manhattan’s SoHo neighborhood, the store sits comfortably at 80 Greene Street, with the huge 4,000 square foot brick and mortar space minimized with a black and white colour scheme, utilizing materials such as black matte-finished marble, nickel-plated brass, and smooth concrete creates a post modern atmosphere.
