In Paris’ 7th arrondissement, Saint Laurent Babylone is opening its doors. Taking its name from Yves Saint Laurent and Pierre Bergé’s historical ties to the Sèvres-Babylone neighbourhood of the capital, the space is a one-stop shop for lovers of art and culture. A continuation of Anthony Vaccarello’s Rive Droite arm of the French house, the store offers a genre-bending collection of books, art and music comprised of archival pieces and out-of-print works from the likes of Andy Warhol, Peter Lindbergh, Bruce Webber and Richard Prince. Perhaps most importantly, the store also stocks the latest issues of HERO and HEROINE.
A series of Saint Laurent Rive droite exclusive editions will populate Vaccarello’s curated selection of ephemera as collaborations with artists such as Daido Moriyama, Bruno Roels and Jeanloup Sieff are unveiled, joining previously published created with Gray Sorrenti and Nick Turner. Launching Babylone, Vaccarello is ensuring the space makes its mark as a cultural hub with a calendar of upcoming cultural events including DJ sessions, author signings and readings.
Saint Laurent Babylone is located at 9 Rue de Grenelle.
