Here's what you need to know about the new store.
It's Southeast Asia's first standalone store
The brand will be situated within The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands, alongside a slew of key luxury fashion players within the complex. As if we need another reason to spend our days shopping here!
If you've visited the historic Parisian flagship at 44 Rue Francois l Er, this might be a familiar sight to you. Taking inspiration from the French store, the new 153 square meter store follows a clean, modernized and classic 20th century French aesthetic—white walls molded with geometric and elaborate ceiling details, Versailles parquet flooring, gold accents, a marble display in the center, mirrored shelving, and 40’s French design furnishings. It's luxurious and totally Instagram worthy. When we popped down to the store for a preview, we spied a floor length mirror in the changing room that's perfect for taking selfies.
The store will carry an assortment of women’s and men’s ready-to-wear pieces from Balmain’s seasonal collections, as well as a range of key and signature bags, shoes and accessories. Notable pieces include the signature Domain Bag and the men's distressed biker jeans.
