Saint Laurent is the latest luxury label to call Cherry Creek home, with its highly anticipated store now open on the upper level of Cherry Creek Shopping Center, near RH. Founded in 1961, Yves Saint Laurent was the first couture house to introduce the concept of luxury prêt-à-porter in a 1966 collection called Rive Gauche, synonymous with youth and freedom. This shift represented a first critical step in the modernization of fashion and revolutionized the socio-cultural landscape. In 1999, the luxury goods division of the PPR Group acquired Yves Saint Laurent and, under the creative direction of Anthony Vaccarello, continues to position the house at the summit of the luxury universe. The Cherry Creek locale showcases the iconic fashion house’s collections of ready-to-wear, handbags, shoes and accessories.
