Bagaholicboy Muses #98 – Louis Vuitton ION Orchard Singapore


Here are more bits and pieces from the newly opened global store in Orchard Road, the Louis Vuitton ION Orchard boutique in Singapore for the benefit of those in the region.


Walk through the main entrance and be immediately greeted by a curved 9 m Bag Bar just for women, the first of its kind in Asia. The men get a shorter 6 m Bag Bar nearby. Not bad at all in my opinion.


Climb up the marble circular stairway and be greeted by a wall of fine leather goods. If they don’t get to your wallet on the first floor, they will on the second. How clever…


Aptly called ‘Women’s Universe’, everything you’ll need from RTW to acccessories are beautifully laid out in this space.


The boys need not feel left out either. The ‘Men’s Universe’ is specially just for us, with mahogany floors and leather chairs. Besides the areas shown above, there are additional niches for men’s accessories (ties, cufflinks and the like), and even one just for women’s shoes. And for those of you who have already visited the duplex boutique, do share your experiences with us here ok?

    nice! is there any special editions they did just for the shop opening?

    The whiff of the leather goods greet you when u step inside. The array of colors and rows of bags is truly a sight to behold! It's definitely much better than Ngee Ann City although i feel that there could be handrails install on the way to second level as the steps were a bit steep especially for those wearing high heels..

    I think the boutique is not as big as it looks. The bag bar takes up a lot of space and hence the first floor is pretty limited in area. The 2nd floor ismuch much bigger and is impressive to see the mens and women's section.

    I also think the shop was rushing for time to open and hence reno works were not exactly very good. Carpets were fraying and the loose bits all over the floor. The tiling was not done nicely too. Kinda feel workmanship was not of a very high standard.

    But still nice to see LV flagship taking shape in Sg! Here's to more big flagships to come!

    I was there this weekend to get a travel notebook and boy is the boutique impressive! The boutique is spacious and there is definitely more things on display. I didn't manage to get to the second floor though. There was tons of people and I just want to get what I want and leave.

    Hi bagaholicsboy!

    I am delighted to read ur own personalised review on the LV ION Orchard! Been there last weekend for my GSS yearly holidays. The store is HUGE & impressive!

    Btw, me & my friends bought some handbags during our trip. One of us bought a Givenchy bag at DFS Scotts, one bought Marc by Marc Jacobs purse (at DFS) & one bought a Burberry tote and purse at Ngee Ann City.

    GSS is the best! Wish I could come back for more things, before GSS ends this month.
