The new Louis Vuitton Island Maison at Marina Bay Sands is more than a place to buy high-fashion clothing and accessories, it’s a super-luxury experience in itself. Opened on September 17, 2011 with a star-studded cast of VIPs and celebrities, including Cate Blanchett, Hidetoshi Nakata, Godfrey Gao and many others, it’s the new place to be.
Sitting several meters off the Marina Bay Sands promenade, seemingly floating on the bay like a big diamond, the amazing Louis Vuitton Island Maison is a new way to indulge your luxury desires.
It’s the 12th Maison Louis Vuitton in the world and first in Southeast Asia (since, technically Hong Kong is East Asia). Designed by acclaimed architect Peter Marino with a nautical theme throughout, the bottom floor has the complete selection of leather goods, ready-to-wear, shoes and accessories for both men and women. The mezzanine level highlights the LV travel luggage and accessories in the elegant Travel Room.
In addition, the property features a private presentation area and an outdoor gallery with a luxury yacht ambience. A tunnel with exhibitions of contemporary art runs from the Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands to the LV bookstore, where you can find books on design, culture and art. Then it’s up the spiral staircase and a showcase of jewelry bags and exclusive watches. The space is highlighted by artwork from the likes of British artist Richard Deacon and Ruben Toledo (photo below).
The amazing Island Maison opened on September 17, 2011. Yves Carcelle, Chairman and CEO of Louis Vuitton exclaims with enthusiasm: “This new and exciting destination, incorporating art and cultural elements, will offer an unforgettable experience. We would like visitors to embark with us on a journey full of surprises on this unique island.”
The opening gala of the Louis Vuitton Island Maison at Marina Bay Sands included lots of stylish celebs, including Cate Blanchett and Hidetoshi Nakata.
