Queensland scores its first Saint Laurent boutique in the heart of The City
You’d be hard-pressed to find pretty much anyone who isn’t familiar with the Saint Laurent brand. From rap songs to the runway, the iconic French fashion house has been redefining luxury since its foundation in 1961. Brisbane is about to get a permanent home for the cultural phenomenon that is YSL, with the brand opening its flagship Queensland store at QueensPlaza today, Thursday March 28.
Joining QueensPlaza as the latest shining instalment in its $36-million mega makeover, Saint Laurent’s first-ever Queensland store will be a haven for lovers of the legendary label. The store is kicking things off by showcasing the brand’s latest Summer ’19 collection, inspired by different eras and timeless icons, and will continue to keep its offering fresh and current. The store itself is just as beautiful as the brand’s offering – the boutique boasts a striking architectural design that is accented with detailing in anodised gold, mirrored stainless steel and leather joinery. In addition to this, no less than three types of marble have been used in the construction of the space, perfectly reflecting the brand’s opulent European aesthetic.
The opening of Brisbane’s flagship Saint Laurent store comes hot on the heels of Dior’s Queensland debut last year, further cementing QueensPlaza’s status as a true destination for all things opulent in the fashion world. These two exciting additions to The City’s sartorial scene join other highly coveted international brands such as Chanel, Burberry and Tiffany & Co. alongside beloved homegrown retailers like Zimmermann, Scanlan Theodore and Camilla. This isn’t all – QueensPlaza is set to welcome Italian fashion house Fendi later in the year, as well as the anticipated Stanton Cafe and Bar.
