From its new atelier inside Hôtel de Sénecterre on the Rue de l'Université in Paris, Saint Laurent has been creating couture for the first time since founder Yves's last collection in 2002. Now you can see the fruits of Hedi Slimane and his team's labour as the brand reveals some of the new couture pieces in a campaign shot at the beautiful 17th-century mansion. There will be one-off women's pieces made in the Atelier Flou (for dress-making) and men's in the Atelier Tailleur (for tailoring) made at the Saint Germain location. The new imagery comes as the Kering Group (who own Saint Laurent), announces strong sales growth in all main product categories and across all regions.
