Saint Laurent Babylone: Anthony Vaccarello’s Parisian Cultural Oasis

In the wake of unveiling its sprawling Paris flagship, Saint Laurent, under the guidance of creative director Anthony Vaccarello, continues to deepen its ties with the city’s rich cultural heritage. Introducing “Saint Laurent Babylone,” the latest addition to Rue de Grenelle, transcends the traditional concept of a bookstore, serving as a vibrant nexus where art, music, fashion, and culture converge, all curated through Vaccarello’s discerning lens.

Mirroring the aesthetic of the brand’s flagship, Saint Laurent Babylone exudes architectural allure, seamlessly blending sleek marble tables with rugged, rocky shelving and walls. Within this space, rare books are meticulously displayed atop an archival Pierre Jeanneret desk, inviting visitors to explore with gloves for a tactile experience.

Yet, Saint Laurent Babylone offers more than just literature; it’s a multimedia haven featuring a carefully curated selection of records and magazines handpicked by Vaccarello himself. Among the offerings are Saint Laurent Rive Droite Edition titles, spanning from vintage classics to contemporary releases, alongside captivating photography by luminaries such as Rose Finn-Kelcey and Juergen Teller.

Venturing beyond retail, Saint Laurent Babylone is poised to become a cultural epicenter, set to host an array of events ranging from DJ sets to readings and listening sessions. Later this month, visitors can anticipate an exclusive book signing event with Juergen Teller, adding an interactive dimension to the space.

Situated at 9 Rue de Grenelle, 75007 Paris, Saint Laurent Babylone invites exploration and engagement, welcoming visitors Wednesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Sundays from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. Immerse yourself in the intersection of fashion, art, and culture at this captivating Parisian destination.
