The wait is finally over. In what had to be one of the longest renovations ever at Marina Bay Sands with its hoarding perpetually up, Saint Laurent looks set to open their first Singapore boutique (and also its flagship) designed by none other than Hedi Slimane. Which also means it will look like a cross between a marble slab showroom and a spacious loo in a six-star hotel complete with lighting that’s even brighter than the sun.
But I jest. And once your eyes adjust to how well-lit the whole boutique is, you’ll better appreciate the rows upon rows of RTW, bags, SLGs and more that are simply presented in a space that’s been tuned to show off Hedi’s creations in the best possible erm, light.
Spread over two floors (last I heard it was supposed to be a duplex within Marina Bay Sands), what you should be checking out are the Singapore-only specialities that will be launched on opening day, including iPhone cases and a whiskey flask from its Toile Monogram collection. In other words, if you’re looking for something new to check out this weekend, here you go.
Update: 8 November 2014
Here are the two exclusive Toile Monogram pieces that you’ll only find at Saint Laurent MBS, the iPhone case and the whiskey flask that are retailing at SGD260 and SGD600 respectively.
Can someone get me the flask, please?
