Fort Street Studio x Louis Vuitton Exotic Skins event in Singapore

Fort Street Studio was pleased to partner with Louis Vuitton Singapore in late September for a world premier shopping event dedicated to men’s and women’s ‘exotic leather skins’ accessories.

Border Reverse Slate greeted Louis Vuitton’s guests at the entrance to Atbara House.


Four rugs were underfoot at Atbara House, which was the former French embassy and the earliest known black-and-white colonial house in Singapore. Over 100 years old, this stately manor is an architectural jewel in the region, reminiscent of the style of the English Landscape movement with picturesque views of the famed Botanical Gardens.

The immeasurably chic, renowned interior designer Rose Anne de Pampelonne conceptualized Atbara House in the private home of a Louis Vuitton woman. She created five salons, showcasing a living room, men’s and women’s universe, lounge, and artisinal rooms.

Fort Street Studio’s Venetian Silver, Field Dark Navy, Drift Bone, and Border Slate Reverse were installed, along with elegantly well-appointed furnishings, lighting, sculpture, wall art, and decorative objects from Nilufar Gallerie, Mazel Galerie Singapore, Alexander Lamont, and Hubert Le Gall.

Stand-out, one-off pieces, such as an exclusive solid-gold malle and mini-Capucines with 3-carat diamonds, were placed center-stage in rooms alongside other pieces from the Exotic Skins collections, elegantly housed on the various tables, sideboards, and shelves.

The living room displayed Louis Vuitton accessories atop a Venetian Silver wild silk rug.

Demonstrations by Louis Vuitton artisans flown in from their Maison in Asnieres took place, showing the glossy or matte finishes of the exotic leather skins, and effects like tie-dye.

Louis Vuitton guests from Malaysia, Vietnam, Singapore, Thaisland, and Indonesia attended private day shopping appointments. In the evening there were receptions for clients, press, and trade. Fort Street Studio was pleased to see so many of our Singapore designers at the house to see full-size carpets displayed in a magnificent surrounding.
