Housed in a spectacular Crystal Pavilion floating on the waters of Marina Bay, Singapore is one of the world’s largest Louis Vuitton boutiques – second only to the brand's flagship Champs-Elysees store in Paris.

With nautical-inspired interiors illumined by natural light, the Louis Vuitton Island Maison is a one-of-a-kind concept that connects to the main shopping centre through an underwater tunnel. (Marinabaysands.com)

The tunnel resembles a fashion show runway - currently showcasing the 2019 summer men’s collection and themed on the Wizard of Oz and the yellow brick road.

Louis Vuitton is known for its luxurious range of luggage - the top floor caters for bespoke luggage, personally engraved - from practical suitcases and overnight bags, where every whim is catered for - we saw a trunk designed especially for Christmas decorations.

And for a decadent picnic, the chauffeur would of course include the champagne carrier.

I read that LV burns any unsold bags at the end of the season. What a crime - the rumor appears to be true. Similar to Chanel, they burn them in order to prevent putting a lower price on them. Historically, it's known that LV does not put its pieces on sale

I'll just go back upstairs and purchase a few more outfits!
