For my last nighttime urban landscape from Singapore, I’m featuring the spectacular Louis Vuitton store up close. Nearly a month ago, when I started my Singapore coverage, I posted one from a very different angle.
Certainly, the super-wide-angle lens has added some extra distortion, but not by much. Yes, the store does look like this with its steeply skewed design. From afar, the building looks like it floats on water, and this gangway of a bridge leads to the entrance. Given all the distinct and modern architecture I featured for the last few days, you can see how this structure fits right in.
I’m sure a distinct flagship store like this has an outsized effect compared to a boxy space in the mall. Though very different from an Apple Store, it reminds me of Apple’s flagship on 5th Avenue in New York City. You know the one, the giant glass cube, that leads underground.
This warm-toned Louis Vuitton has a very different feel from the cool Apple Stores, but equally striking in its own way.
