Step into The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands and its vast range of luxury brands is sure to awe. The upmarket destination is home to over 170 luxury brands, more than 50 of which are some of the world’s most prestigious watch and jewellery houses — making The Shoppes Southeast Asia’s very own version of Place Vendôme, with the region’s largest collection of fine watch and jewellery brands gathered in one striking locale.
A front-runner in the world of luxury shopping, The Shoppes goes the extra mile to offer not just variety, but something else: Experience. How so? Through its exclusive Personal Shopping service. And it’s the first luxury mall in Singapore to do that.
“The Personal Shopping service…is not only a great way to host our VIP customers and royal dignitaries, it is also a special way of engaging our everyday customers who appreciate undivided access to our comprehensive collection of global brands under one roof,” says John Postle, vice-president of retail at Marina Bay Sands.
Offering guests customised and exclusive sessions at the mall’s vast range of brands, the service assigns a chaperone who will be at your beck and call to cater to your specific shopping needs. Simply fill in an online form — providing information about style inspiration, brand preferences, availability — for your very own unforgettable shopping journey to begin.
As the only luxury mall in Singapore to offer a by-appointment only Personal Shopping service for luxury watch and jewellery brands, first-hand access to the newest collections debuting in Southeast Asia is guaranteed.
Had your eye on the newly premiered iterations from the seminal Tambour Moon collection — which marked Louis Vuitton’s watchmaking debut in 2002 — that have yet to be released? Well, the Louis Vuitton Island Maison carries its most extensive range of watches and jewellery in Singapore, including exceptional and high watchmaking pieces, such as the Tambour Moon Tourbillon Volant “Poinçon de Genève”* watch (pictured), with a manually wound flying tourbillon. New timepieces from the collection will only launch globally in October 2017, but because the Island Maison is one of the selected few to carry the pieces from this month onwards, The Shoppes’ Personal Shopping clients will be among the world’s first to own the new Tambour Moons.
Jewellery aficionados, on the other hand, can get up close and personal with (and take home, of course) the Cactus de Cartier fine jewellery collection at Cartier’s largest boutique in Southeast Asia. The bold three-dimensional pieces are sculptural and sensuous, taking inspiration from succulents and blooms. In addition to the covetable array of jewellery and wristwatches, the boutique at Marina Bay Sands is also home to its largest collection of leather goods and accessories, as well as four private yet spacious VIP salons for guests.
Another must-visit this season is Italian luxury house, Bulgari, where an enriching shopping experience awaits. Exuding the air of an art gallery, with vintage campaign imagery and photographs from the ’60s-70s of legendary celebs such as Elizabeth Taylor adorning walls and heritage-inspired furniture, it offers several VIP guest areas where the most precious creations can be viewed in total privacy by clients. Among the collections is Bulgari’s latest Diva’s Dream timepieces, which showcase a hand painted peacock motif.
While bespoke shopping experiences and first-hand access to exclusive collections may be the hallmarks of The Shoppes’ Personal Shopping Service, the service does not end there. At your desire, it can also provide special hair and make-up appointments to ensure you’re looking your best from top to toe. Post-shopping, guests are also treated to a delightful high tea at TWG Tea Salon and Boutique for a wonderful finish to the day’s activities.
Whether you’re looking for the perfect gift for a special someone, or wanting to add to your own watch and jewellery collections, Marina Bay Sands’ Personal Shopping service will cater to your desires with a personal touch.
