Louis Vuitton Ion Orchard Opens This Week!
Isn't it befitting that the 100th post of My MANy Bags News is dedicated to the opening of one of the most anticipated luxury mall of Singapore?!?! Ion Orchard will house duplex level flagships of some of the world's most luxurious and coveted brands. And that includes Louis Vuitton who will get a headstart to opening its doors.
I am not sure whether if the store will open to the public on 2nd July as reported here or will it be 3rd July as rumoured on the Purse Forum. Nonetheless, Louis Vuitton Ion Orchard's opening heralds the arrival of Singapore's position as the retail mecca of Southeast Asia!
