It’s time to unveil the ‘limited editions’ that were released specially to mark the opening of Louis Vuitton at ION Orchard. Called the Louis Vuitton Orchard Road Singapore collection, it’s not 100% true that these pieces were just made specifically for us. Many of them are new season items like the Irene or just have the words ‘Louis Vuitton Orchard Road Singapore’ slapped across the box or tag.
The most prized of them all (in my opinion anyway) would be the Louis Vuitton Monogram Miroir Bel-Air in Gold. Only 100 available, the clutch comes with its own removable chain strap.
I’m actually liking this, the Louis Vuitton Apparence Transparent Sunglasses, which is actually from the next season. Made specifically for the boys, I love how the transparent acetate frame looks. There is also another pair for the ladies, the Louis Vuitton Soupcon Sunglasses which feature ‘inclusion’ details (inspired by the fancy jewellery).
Then there is this pair of ballerinas in Bronze, which feature the tinsels, stones and ribbons left over from the current season. There are also 6 silk trench coats for the ladies, 12 lambskin miniskirts (think perforated like the Mahina) and 80 cotton tees which has a removable patch on the shoulder that matches the ballerinas above.
Taken as a whole the collection is really ho-hum, though there are a couple of star pieces (like the sunglasses). Still I am thankful that they did not do a Merlion charm.
