Saint Laurent heads to Miami Beach
For the latest installation of Saint Laurent’s immersive Rive Droite project, Anthony Vaccarello has partnered with Japanese artist Sho Shibuya, launching a gallery-cum-café that’s located quite literally on Miami beach. In the ephemeral gallery space sits Shibuya’s latest project, titled 55 Sunrises, in which 55 canvases act as a visual diary of cultural news and the view from Shibuya’s room during his morning meditations, all in lieu of the 55th anniversary of Saint Laurent’s first Rive Droite boutique opening in Paris. It’s not like we’re dropping major hints, but we hope someone does something on this scale for our 55th birthday…
Lanvin reopen their Parisian flagship
As part of Bruno Sialelli’s new direction for the famed French luxury house, which has seen campaigns starring Paris Hilton and stylish nods to Gotham City, Lanvin have reopened their alluring flagship store on Rue du Faubourg Saint-Honoré. Spotlighting all of the label’s new wares over three floors, inside the space has been totally reimagined with flourishes of modern craftsmanship and a good few frocks and suits too. The space also boasts a boatload of natural light, with the outside still upholding its own traditional architecture in a colossal meeting of old and new.
