Saint Laurent, the aesthetically controversial design house most recently associated with the advent of "grunge tiaras," is back at its 57th Street flagship. WWD reports that after undergoing ten months of renovations, this store is now the brand's largest in the world, surpassing the Los Angeles store at 14,071 square feet.
Those who are familiar with the original will notice it's been upgraded from two stories to three with a new elevator and a staircase reminiscent of the Paris flagship. On the ground floor, expect to find both men's and womenswear, while the second offers solely women's ready-to-wear, shoes, and accessories. The third has the same for men.
Though you'll have to wait until the spring collections hit stores to actually pick up a tiara of your own, expect to see a pack of vaguely scene-y kids perusing the store in the meantime.
