The 4,800-square-foot store store, located on  746 Thurlow Street, retails both women's and men's collections and is based on an adaptable, global concept championed by ex-creative director Hedi Slimane, before his shock departure from the label.

Based on the simple, contemporary codes of the Union des Artistes Modernes (UAM), using French Art Deco techniques and materials, the store features a variety of hard surfaces in black and white marble and highly polished metal, balanced with soft, quilted leather furniture.

The largest Saint Laurent store in the world, using these design cues, opened late last year in Tokyo.
