Louis Vuitton is ready to open its first Island Maison at Marina Bay Sands, Singapore on 18th September this year. Designed by internationally acclaimed architect Peter Marino,this new luxury shopping paradise will sit directly on water, with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the bay. It will not be just a luxury house of fashion, but a space that also incorporate art and cultural elements, which allows visitors to make their own discoveries.
The ground floor will feature a complete selection of men’s and women’s leather goods, ready to wear, shoes and accessories, while the mezzanine level will be a space dedicated to travel luggage and accessories in the first Travel Room in Asia Pacific. There will also be a private lounge for intimate presentations as well as an outdoor loggia reminiscent of a deck on a luxury yacht.
The island will be linked to the Marina Bay Sands mall by a tunnel. Visitors travelling through the tunnel will be able to view pieces of contemporary artwork, before it leads them to the Louis Vuitton bookstore where they can browse through a specially curated range of design, cultural and art books.
The Louis Vuitton Island will be the 12th Maison in the world, 1st Maison in Southeast Asia. As of today, Louis Vuitton has 459 stores in 63 countries.
