Set Sail For Louis Vuitton’s New “Island” Store in Singapore – 30/9/09

Louis Vuitton is making waves this week with the news that they plan to open a unique “island” store that will “float” on water in Singapore.

According to the Luxury Insider, this boutique at Singapore’s Marina Bay Sands will be enshrined in a stand-alone glass-and-steel crystal pavilion that appears to float on the water off the integrated shopping centre, restaurant and entertainment complex.

We like the sound of this novel concept, but can’t help wondering whether it was inspired by one of France’s most famous desserts, Oeufs á la Nage (which means ‘floating island’)?
