Saint Laurent Opens Its First Café In Paris For Paris Fashion Week
Maison de luxe Saint Laurent opened its first coffee shop in its Rive Droite creative space next to its store near the Jardin des Tuileries in Paris on September 15, just in time for Paris Fashion Week.
The Saint Laurent Rive Droite café features top-to-toe black marble and neon interiors, and will offer your usual fare of coffee options—all created by the revolutionary Faema E61 espresso machine—as well as delicious pastries and viennoiseries.
The café will open alongside an exhibition of African art pieces curated by Saint Laurent creative director Anthony Vaccarello, featuring a selection of pieces that range from an ultra-rare sculpture of a SENUFO hornbill bird and an Ivorian mythical animal—the first piece of African art ever collected by Yves Saint Laurent—amongst other exotic and inspiring works.
Guests who like what they hear can download the café’s music playlist, which will be available via a QR code placed on its sleek black Saint Laurent branded coffee cups.
