PARK IN PARIS: To mark Paris Fashion Week, Saint Laurent will host an exclusive residency by Los Angeles-based restaurant Sushi Park at its Rive Droite store from September 28 to October 7.
The brand said the “culinary event” will mark the first time chef Peter Park and his team will bring the Sushi Park experience to another destination. The restaurant, which opened in 2006, is known for its chef-chosen menu and “has become one of the city’s most iconic culinary destinations,” the French fashion house said in a statement.
Park and his team will travel to Paris at the invitation of Saint Laurent’s creative director, Anthony Vaccarello. From 28 September to 7 October, the shop will host two evening services, at 19:00 and 21:30, where guests can discover the Park’s menu with a selection of fresh seasonal fish of the highest quality.
“I have always been grateful to Anthony for being a regular, when I was offered the opportunity to collaborate with YSL I said yes. I wanted to create a unique experience and invited an old friend and potter, Daeyong Kim, to create a new ceramic line just for this collaboration. I really hope it will be a joyful and memorable experience for everyone,” said Park.
The Rive Droite boutique, which occupies the space formerly occupied by the Colette concept store, is billed as a “creative and cultural destination” that regularly hosts exhibitions and events. It previously hosted a Sant Ambroeus food truck, but diners lucky enough to snag a Sushi Park reservation will be seated in the basement nightclub.
