Louis Vuitton is saying Tchau to Brazil and Konnichiwa to Japan! The French fashion house announced that it’s taking its Cruise 2018 collection to Kyoto, Japan this May for a runway show at the Miho Museum. Creative director Nicolas Ghesquière shared the news on his Instagram this morning, writing [the show] “…Will be held in a gigantic woodland” in the space. “The place inspired me right away,” Ghesquière told Vogue exclusively. “After the desert and Palm Springs, the ocean and Rio, I wanted to introduce people to another landscape, to immerse them in a sea of green. With the I. M. Pei’s Miho Museum, we are continuing an architectural voyage that suits the Maison Louis Vuitton to a T. For our 2018 Cruise fashion show we are transported into a tangled web of nature, geographical greatness, and a unique architectural vision.”
This will be Ghesquière’s fourth Resort collection for Vuitton. He’s previously shown in Monaco, Palm Springs, and in Rio de Janeiro. It will broadcast live on LouisVuitton.com May 14.
