Earlier this year, the Saint Laurent Soho boutique opened its doors after months of delay and serious anticipation. Since then (June 5th to be exact), I had been counting down the days until I was back in NYC so I could see this beauty for myself. Lucky for me, I was in the city right before the holidays, and after an amazing brunch at Felix, I took a stroll over to Greene Street so I could get a closer look.
When walking into the 4,000-square-foot Saint Laurent boutique, it is very apparent that the vibe is minimalist meets modern vintage. Floor to ceiling monitors featuring the latest campaigns greet you at the door while further inside, sleek fixtures house the latest collections on specially designed hangers. To complement, large glass museum-like cases hold beyond amazing jewelry and specialty items while vintage furniture comforts those who need to sit down — aka my man while he waited for me to finish up my "research."
But the back wall was the grand finale with grey marble shelves creating the most stunning (and longest) display of accessories I have ever seen! It was mesmerizing — so many bags (the Duffle, Sac de Jour, Betty, Cabas Chyc) and shoes to choose from.
Even though it took a little longer than expected to open, it was well worth the wait. Stop in and see for yourself!
