Situated in the elegant and affluent 7th arrondissment, at 9 rue Grenelle, Saint Laurent Babylone is a novel artistic and literary destination opening in the heart of Paris’ culturally sophisticated rive gauche. Close to rue Babylone, where Yves Saint Laurent and his lifetime partner Pierre Bergé moved to in 1970, the name refers to the historic connection and emotional attachment that the fashion house’s founder shared with the Sèvres-Babylone neighborhood.

As an extension of Saint Laurent Rive Droite, Saint Laurent Babylone is a unique collection focusing on creativity and culture. Conceived by Saint Laurent’s creative director Anthony Vaccarello, Saint Laurent Babylone is a realm where art, culture, and expression intersect. More than a mere bookstore, Babylone emerges as a cultural hub, hosting an eclectic mix of books, art, and music, alongside cultural events ranging from DJ sessions to book signings. Each item, curated by Anthony Vaccarello, reflects Saint Laurent’s rich heritage and innovative future. From rare finds, out-of-print publications to Saint Laurent Rive Droite Editions and beyond, Saint Laurent Babylone sees the expansion of Saint Laurent’s creative horizon.


With his immense knowledge and manifold interests in different sectors in culture and design, Anthony Vaccarello incessantly envisions new ways of expanding the Saint Laurent’s universe while maintaining the brand’s distinctive DNA. Saint Laurent Babylone is the best practice of how Saint Laurent enriches the Parisian culture scene, inviting artistic innovators to connect, share, and inspire. The opening of Saint Laurent Banylone will undoubtedly continue Saint Laurent’s longstanding legacy as a beacon to creativity and artistry.
