Passard has gained attention for introducing vegetable-focused menus to fine dining - and he will be bringing such expertise too this pop-up! Did you know that Arpège is a Muslim-friendly fine dining restaurant in Paris? ?Credit: Louis Vuitton
This is in line with the fall garden theme of the pop-up, where the space is decorated with a variety of flowers and leaves. There's also a ton of natural wood and rattan chairs, for a rustic yet welcoming vibe ?Credit: Louis Vuitton

We're not sure what the menu is, but these first look pictures do look gorgeous and classy - almost too pretty to be eaten ? Lunch, dinner, and afternoon tea time services (between 6 to 9 courses by the way! ?) deliver exquisite seasonality paired with settings by French tableware brand, Maison Fragile.

And of course, such elegance comes at a price tag - prices start from 300,000 won (~SGD300). Well, it's LV for a reason, I guess ?
Aside from the tableware engraved with motifs of vegetables and fruits, Louis Vuitton has also put together sustainable napkin holders made from leftover leather from the construction of its products. Very classy, indeed ?Credit: Louis Vuitton
