Louis Vuitton has claimed a second “island” in Singapore. The French luxury brand unveiled Southeast Asia’s first Island Maison at Marina Bay Sands in 2011 and, as of 28 November this year, will open the doors to its second piece of prime real estate on the waterfront for 25 days. The gleaming, half-submerged South Crystal Pavilion (formerly occupied by clubs Pangea and Avalon) will house the celebrated travelling Series 3 Exhibition, the third sartorially-inspired curation of art and photography that explores artistic director Nicolas Ghesquière‘s inspirations for his collections. Featuring captures by photographers Juergen Teller and Bruce Weber, this edition zooms in on the intricacies of Louis Vuitton’s fall/winter 2015 collection and savoir faire behind covetable leather creations, to be discovered in a series of experiential rooms that will immerse visitors in the universe and spirit of the man and brand.
The Louis Vuitton Series 3 Exhibition will run from 28 November to 23 December 2015, 11am-11pm from Sunday to Thursday, 11am-11.30pm on Friday and Saturday. Admission is free.
