The retail side of the Marina Bay Sands has been slow to take shape, but it’s finally starting to get together. About 40% of the retail space has opened so far, although over 90% has already been leased. Some of the major draws for fashionistas is the newly opened mega Chanel shop, Fendi’s flagship store which carries Fendi Baby and Men’s collection, Anne Fontaine’s first local boutique and Manolo Blanick’s boutique. The new shopping mall still has a "not-finished" feel and look but the three floors of luxury boutiques have the potential to become a major draw with the right combination of unique events and goods. Dior, for example, has announced that one of its 10 white gold and jade watch, La Mini D de Dior, will be available at its new shop. Chanel is also offering some limited edition handbags.
