Louis Vuitton—the eponymous founder of one of fashion’s most valued and recognisable brands—built his empire around sturdy trunks that meld innovation and functionality with great style. With trunks putting Vuitton on the world map, it is naturally the subject of “Malle Extraordinaire”, an exhibition that showcases precious pieces from Parisian fashion juggernaut’s storied archives. Now on display at Vuitton’s Marina Bay Sands Island Maison for a limited period of time, the exhibition makes for a great history lesson, too. After all, each trunk comes with a story to tell of its incredible journey.
The Louis Vuitton Island Maison at Marina Bay Sands is open daily: Sunday-Thursday, 10:30am to 11:00pm, and Friday-Saturday, 10:30am to 11:30pm.
