Louis Vuitton has seen some incredible transformations over the years, with streetwear-savvy collaborations and digital initiatives aplenty.
But the beating heart of the Maison remains its savoir faire. It is this that remains the central focus of its latest showcase.
With travel now a faraway thought, Louis Vuitton is determined to bring you on a voyage. What greets you as you step into the store is a tribute to tropical modernism. Foliage surrounds a patio in which you’ll find the Swing Boat by Atelier Oi and the Bomboca Sofa by Campana Brothers. Explore the space to find several thematic areas.
Head to the Women’s Vanity area for your first look at the iconic trunk. The Malle Coiffeuse beauty trunk is coated in a Monogram canvas complete with natural cowhide leather handles and a foldable stool, and comes with multiple compartments, drawers, and mirrors. Over in the Artisanal Corner, you can customise the trunk of your dreams. No request is too far a stretch of the imagination. An artisan on-site is able to paint initials, graphics, and personal designs. You can even request motifs of your pets, loved ones, and even family crests.
What really is the cherry on top of this showcase is the Men’s Lifestyle Room. A riff of a man’s enclave, the space is an homage to hobbies and gaming with a Monogrammed Foosball Table, and trunks for all your needs, including turntables, bluetooth speakers, sneakers, and even a portable casino. It’s an impressive space that commands attention to the Maison’s unwavering dedication to craftsmanship, despite constant technological advances.
Don’t leave without spending some time at the Malle Maison Vivienne, which is housed in a Monogram Canvas trunk. The split-level designer dollhouse is decked with removable furniture, including miniature versions of the Louis Vuitton Courrier Lozine and wardrobe trunks for the beloved Vivienne doll. The attention to detail is astounding here.
The Louis Vuitton Savoir Faire Universe Showcase is taking place from July 20 until August 2, 2020 at its Ngee Ann City store. Viewing is by private appointments only via Louis Vuitton Client Services at +65 6788 388 or via respective Client Advisors.
