No less a tastemaker than Coco Chanel once declared that “whoever said money can’t buy you happiness didn’t know where to go shopping.” The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, as you can imagine, would most likely have been one of her top retail destinations. It is, after all, home to Chanel’s newly revamped and largest boutique in Southeast Asia, which is remodelled after her Rue Cambon apartment and fitted with private “salons” for clients to peruse in utmost luxury. This, alongside isles and isles of equally sparkling duplexes and triplexes like Christian Dior, Bulgari and Saint Laurent, and the Louis Vuitton Crystal Pavilion outside.
But beyond plush, intimate enclaves, it is The Shoppes’ Personal Shopping service that takes retail therapy to the next level.

Unlike traditional concepts where clients are attached to one stylist, you get a Personal Shopping chaperone at The Shoppes who will bring you to any of the 170 boutiques you wish via buggy. For once, shopping till you drop can actually be as fabulous as it looks. Then, in each store, you will find your very own dedicated personal shopper who will greet you with a wardrobe that’s been carefully curated based on your style affinities, silhouette and budget, all filled in by you online prior to the experience. Clients also get unparalleled first-hand access to collections and limited edition pieces debuting in Southeast Asia; while a Fragrance Profiling Service at Penhaligon’s will lead the way to your perfect scent. And to top things of, all sessions culminate with a lavish spread at TWG Tea.

John Postle, Vice President of Retail, Marina Bay Sands, said: “The Personal Shopping service caters to the progressive demands from our discerning shoppers. The new service is not only a great way to host our VIP customers and royal dignitaries, it is also a special way of engaging our everyday customers who appreciate undivided access to our comprehensive collection of global brands under one roof.” Indeed, the mark of a luxury shopping destination doesn’t just lie in the quality of the products it offers, but also in the immersive experience and level of service it provides—and The Shoppes ticks all the boxes. But be careful, one could get used to the royal treatment of savouring the sartorial season’s finest with a champagne in hand.
