EXCLUSIVE: Saint Laurent Debuts New Retail Format in Former Colette Location

PARIS — Colette has left the building, but its spirit is alive and well: the space that housed the Paris concept store for 20 years will reopen on Saturday as Saint Laurent Rive Droite, a new retail format developed by creative director Anthony Vaccarello that will sell everything from Jean Prouvé chairs to Saint Laurent-branded condoms.
Billed as “a creative and cultural destination,” the new boutique and its sister unit on Rodeo Drive in Los Angeles, opening the same day, represent a departure for Saint Laurent, known for its minimal stores featuring acres of veiny marble and gleaming shelves.
In addition to offering a wide range of products — including limited-edition collaborations and rare books and vinyl — alongside women’s and men’s ready-to-wear and accessories, the Paris space will also house a takeaway coffee counter and a club that can be turned into an event space.
The ground floor is chockablock with novelty branded items including gold skateboards, yoga mats, water bottles, earphones, Frisbees, phone cases, lighters, stationery, matchboxes, cocktail sticks and USB keys — there will even be biscuits featuring founder Yves Saint Laurent’s drawings.
“The idea was to propose a larger vision of Saint Laurent beyond the clothes, accessories and campaigns,” Vaccarello

MONACO BRIDE: Charlotte Casiraghi tied the knot with Dimitri Rassam, the father of her seven-month-old son Balthazar, in a civil ceremony in Monaco on Saturday.
The bride wore a short guipure dress embellished with crystal-embroidered bows and satin sandals, all designed by Anthony Vaccarello for Saint Laurent, the brand said in a statement. Her hair was styled by John Nollet, the hairstylist said in a separate statement.
Guests at the ceremony included socialites Bianca Brandolini and Eugenie Niarchos, as well as her brothers Andrea Casiraghi, with his wife Tatiana Santo Domingo, and Pierre Casiraghi, with his spouse Beatrice Borromeo, according to French media reports.
Rassam, a film producer, is the son of French actress Carole Bouquet and producer Jean-Pierre Rassam. It is the first wedding for Casiraghi, who has another son, Raphaël, from a previous relationship with French humorist Gad Elmaleh.
The daughter of Princess Caroline of Monaco and granddaughter of American film star Grace Kelly, Casiraghi is a regular at fashion week events, regularly attending Gucci and Saint Laurent shows.
The Monaco royal appeared in Saint Laurent’s fall 2018 campaign and had previously featured in ads for Gucci, which like Saint Laurent belongs to French conglomerate Kering, headed by François-Henri Pinault. She also

Catherine Deneuve’s Saint Laurent Wardrobe Raises $1M at Auction

MILLION-DOLLAR WARDROBE: The sale of Catherine Deneuve’s Yves Saint Laurent outfits raised $ 1 million during an auction at Christie’s Paris on Thursday, with every single lot snapped up.
Interest in the sale was so strong that 90 percent of the 129 lots sold for multiple times above their pre-sale estimate, while the pre-sale exhibition held during Paris Couture Week drew 4,500 visitors, the auction house said. Online bidding for a further 140 lots remains open until Jan. 30 at midnight.
“This week, with highlights including the view and the auction itself, has been a new experience for me and has exceeded my expectations in many ways,” Deneuve said in a statement.
“I would like to thank Christie’s for the beautiful catalogue and the fact they paid tribute to YSL’s talent by presenting his creations in such an exquisite way at the preview, attended by thousands of people. I sincerely hope that the new owners will enjoy these pieces of couture as much as I did,” she added.
The top lot was a haute couture evening ensemble consisting of a chiffon blouse, scarf and taffeta skirt from the Russian collection that Saint Laurent designed for fall 1977. It sold for $ 59,745, 10 times the top

Yves Saint Laurent Illustrations for Children’s Book Up for Auction

THE DEVIL IN PARIS: Parisian auction house Cornette de Saint Cyr is holding an auction on Dec. 19 of 100 drawings by fashion designer Yves Saint Laurent.
The pictures, drawn by Saint Laurent between 1961 and 1962, were destined to illustrate a children’s book commissioned by Parisian publisher Jacques Damase, but the project never came through. This is the first time the drawings are being unveiled to the public.
Named “Le Diable à Paris” (“The Devil in Paris”), the book, written by Damase, features a dapper-looking devil, drawn by Saint Laurent, wearing a red suit and little black horns on the cover illustration.
Other drawings see the devil dress up to visit a duchess, sport a leopard-printed suit and even a bull’s head in an illustration titled “Le Diable Espagnol” (“The Spanish Devil”), where he is pictured alongside a flamenco dancer.
Drawn in ink, pastel or graphite in mostly red and black hues, the title character is faced with an array of magical creatures, such as a giraffe in the shape of the Eiffel Tower or a human body with a dragon’s head.
A statement from the auction house explained Damase met Saint Laurent through accessories designer Roger Vivier. At the time of the project, the

Vintage Christian Lacroix, Yves Saint Laurent on Sale Benefitting Women in Politics

Christene Barberich, founder of Refinery 29, has partnered with Rebecca Taylor, Rachel Antonoff and Stacy London for a vintage sale of over 150 one-of-a-kind pieces from the likes of Christian Lacroix, Kenzo, Nike, Yves Saint Laurent, Miu Miu, Prada and more to benefit women’s empowerment in the second installment of a series called “Vintage for a Cause.”
The sale tonight from 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Rebecca Taylor store in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District will donate 50 percent of the proceeds to “Should She Run,” a charity working to put women in public office (the goal is 250,000 women in public office by 2030).
“Empowering women is something I’m extremely passionate about, so I’m very happy we’re able to host this event to support ‘She Should Run,’” Taylor said. “I think it’s a very important time to support women running for office, and I really admire Christene as a friend and fellow women entrepreneur for starting ‘Vintage for a Cause.’”
“Stacy and I share a deep mutual affection for vintage, so it was a given I wanted to do these pop-up sales with her, as well as other women, designers and shop-owners who share our affinity for beautiful pieces from the past,” Barberich said.

Nobuyoshi Araki and Saint Laurent Wrap Up Colette Era

PARIS — It’s a Saint Laurent-Nobuyoshi Araki send-off for Colette.
Sixteen images of a scantily clad Anja Rubik by the Japanese artist will serve as the store’s final display of artwork as part of the storied French label’s store takeover, running from Dec. 2 through to Colette’s closure on Dec. 20.
The 16-piece series is titled “Saint Laurent Shiki-in” or “lust for color” and is meant to bring together the world of Saint Laurent with Araki’s work, according to the brand, which lauded the photographer as “a key figure in modern world culture.”
Saint Laurent designer Anthony Vaccarello worked with the Japanese artist for the series that mixes photos with painting techniques.
Vaccarello last year chose Rubik for his advertising campaign at the French label, which, at the time, described the Polish model as projecting the image of a “a free, hedonist and elusive woman.”
In the final Colette exhibit, black-and-white photographs show various images of Rubik. In one, she is lying flat on her back, eyes closed and legs folded; naked except for an open jacket. Swathes of blue and purple are punctuated with splashes of pink.
Another shows her standing naked in high heels, her arms restrained by straps wrapped around her chest, matching

EXCLUSIVE: Tomas Maier Taps Laurent Claquin as CEO

NEW YORK — Tomas Maier has a new chief executive officer for his signature brand — and he’s already a high-profile executive at parent company Kering, WWD has learned.
Laurent Claquin, who will continue to head Kering Americas, takes on his additional responsibilities at Tomas Maier, effective today.
He reports to Jean-François Palus, Kering’s group managing director, and succeeds Giuseppe Giovannetti, who left the French conglomerate last week. Giovannetti’s next move could not immediately be learned.
Claquin joins the German-born designer at a busy time for his signature fashion house.
Maier recently rejiggered his boutique in Greenwich Village here into the brand’s first men’s-only flagship, and relaunched his e-commerce business through a partnership with Farfetch.
There are four other Tomas Maier stores selling men’s and women’s in the U.S. — Madison Avenue and East Hampton in New York and Bal Harbour and Palm Beach in Florida. The designer is mulling another men’s-only unit for Tokyo.
Maier, who has also served as the creative director of Bottega Veneta since 2001, founded his own brand in 1997. He entered into a venture with Kering three years ago, a move that allowed his label to expand its offering into a full lifestyle collection.
At present, 55 percent of the Maier business

Saint Laurent Men’s RTW Spring 2016

Hedi Slimane has been photographing the California beach scene for years — long before he decamped permanently from Paris to Los Angeles. He seemed to have a hoot with his “Surf Sounds” collection for spring, dressing a torrent of guys and gals for midnight shenanigans — even showering the audience with YSL-shaped confetti during the finale.
You could sense the designer’s light mood when your eyes adjusted to the pitch-black show venue and you noticed the usual industrial bleachers had been covered in kitschy palm-trees-at-sunset wallpaper. Similar motifs turned up on fancy satin jackets and mohair granny cardigans, which the young models wore with the same nonchalance as black leather jackets, hands thrust deep into their pockets as they barreled down the runway in white high-tops.
There was plenty of Kurt Cobain in the men’s looks: The shaggy hairstyles; the white plastic sunglasses, the plaid shirts; the denim with blown-out knees. And there were plenty of literal thrift-shop styles, a charge frequently leveled at Slimane since his debut grunge collection for fall 2013.
Yet as a styling and merchandising effort, it was hard to fault — except that it was hardly Coachella summery, what with all the knit caps, velvet scarves and fringed
