The Yves Saint Laurent store in Soho still isn't open, so for now we're just going to have to settle for news concerning its facade. The Fashion Law noticed that the plywood was recently updated to reflect the new Hedi Slimane-implemented Saint Laurent Paris name. As you can see, not only has the "Yves" been dropped, but the font is much blockier.
By the time The Cut made it over, it had been covered up with a paper bill for the T-shirt company Rocksmith. The good news amidst all this name change flip-floppery and bill posting is at least something is happening down there.
