A Giant Burberry Olympia Bag Installation Has Arrived in Singapore

The iconic Olympia bag from the British fashion house has journeyed all the way to the Lion City.

Of the many luxury fashion brands that you can wear, there’s no denying that Burberry is one of the most recognisable ones. Now, this remains true for art and sculpture as well as couture. From 16 Aug to 29 Aug 2021, the iconic British fashion brand is showcasing an art installation of a giant Burberry bag — the sophisticated Olympia bag, to be precise — at ION Orchard in the heart of Orchard Road in Singapore

Singapore is the third city in the world to display the giant Olympia bag, following Burberry’s past installations along the River Thames in London and Palm West Beach in Dubai. Check out the previous art installations in all their splendour below.

Viewed against the skyline of these urban destinations, the timeless beauty of the Olympia bag can’t help but turn people’s heads. In bringing these colossal installations to dynamic cities around the world, Burberry aims to showcase “the Olympia bag’s story of artistic precision and craft,” a statement from the official website reads.

Together with its streamlined details and adjustable shoulder straps for hands-free ease, this designer bag from the quintessential British brand adds a sleek look to any wardrobe.
