Saint Laurent Unveils Enchanting Bookstore in Paris

Following the launch of its largest Paris flagship store in December, Saint Laurent’s creative director, Anthony Vaccarello, is further intertwining the brand with its Parisian heritage by unveiling a new, architecturally captivating space. Named Saint Laurent Babylone, this cultural oasis situated on Rue de Grenelle is not just an ordinary bookstore; it is a sanctuary where the worlds of art, music, fashion, and culture merge under Vaccarello’s curated vision.

Echoing the aesthetic of the brand’s recent Paris flagship, Saint Laurent Babylone blends polished marble tables with natural, rugged shelves and walls. Visitors can peruse rare books laid out on a historic Pierre Jeanneret desk, with gloves provided for handling these treasures.

Saint Laurent Babylone offers more than just books—it also presents a curated selection of records and magazines, handpicked by Vaccarello. According to WWD, the store features a mix of Saint Laurent Rive Droite Edition works, encompassing both classic and contemporary titles, alongside photography from artists like Rose Finn-Kelcey and Juergen Teller.
