The new Richard Mille Singapore boutique was inaugurated on 14th December in the prestigious setting of the Grand Hyatt Hotel on Orchard Road, one of the great bastions of luxury in the Garden City.
The Singapore boutique is one of the brand’s largest showrooms covering 200 m2 featuring a new showroom concept enhanced by very subtle lighting. All forthcoming boutiques of the brand will be inspired by this new design concept encapsulating a unique and enlightened atmosphere. A range of new areas, including a “watchmaker’s workshop” and a lounge bar, also characterise this boutique. The bar’s warm and friendly atmosphere encourages visitors to spend some time in this temple devoted to very fine watchmaking.
At the heart of the boutique, 24 display cases present and showcase the collection’s most exceptional creations. Curved display cases fixed to an all-glass facade recall the tonneau shape of Richard Mille timepieces and enable collectors and enthusiasts to admire these watches from all angles. Two distinctive sculptures – one located on the outer facade and the other on the inner facade – represent the spectacular mechanisms used in Richard Mille watches.
The inauguration of the boutique began with a ribbon-cutting ceremony in the presence of Richard Mille and Dave Tan, CEO of Richard Mille Asia, joined by a prestigious brand partner and friend, Michelle Yeoh, who wished to be at Richard Mille’s side for this momentous occasion.
After the ceremony, the new boutique was unveiled in spectacular fashion, and the 300 guests enjoyed an exclusive opportunity to discover the new RM universe. To welcome the guests, the evening’s waiting staff were dressed in various sporting outfits (tennis, golf, motorsports, etc.) typically worn by some of the brand’s partners, providing a glimpse of the world Richard Mille is truly passionate about!
After the cocktail reception, the evening continued in one of the Grand Hyatt Singapore’s luxury Salons, renamed the “RM Club” for the occasion. A fabulous programme was concocted and music took centre stage, with a performance from the famous DJ ed (Leo Lanvin) to start the show, followed by the South Korean girl group MISS A, who gave guests an exceptional concert to round off an exceptional evening.
