The celebrations continue at One On The Bund at the ‘Louis Vuitton Pop-up Hotel’  at the Fullerton Bay Hotel.   Guests were transported from the Louis Vuitton Island by boat.

The venue was transformed using design and imagery to showcase its history and craftsmanship, as well as its modern association with innovators such as famed tattoo artist Scott Campbell, who recently collaborated with the brand for a range of Men’s products.  Relevant Asian-inspired interiors provided a platform to highlight unique cultural elements that were on display for Singapore, China, Malaysia, India and home of Louis Vuitton, Paris.

Grammy Award-winner singer Estelle brought the house down with “American Boy” as well as her other hit numbers.

Guests had the opportunity to taste a variety of French delicacies prepared by the Four Seasons Hotel and Singapore-based pattissiere, Canelle.

Specially-designed cocktails by a commissioned mixologist and Ruinart champagne were served throughout the night.

DJ Falcone and DJ Antwone of France took and and performed their very best, with a back drop of visual and video graphics of Singapore, paying tribute to Asia’s style capital, which is now home to Louis Vuitton’s Island maison.
