Louis Vuitton confirms show location for Cruise '18
Miho Museum Bridge
It's confirmed! The Louis Vuitton Cruise show will take place on May 14, 2017 at the Miho Museum Bridge in Kyoto, Japan. The iconic location was originally conceptualised by the Louvre's architect I.M. Pei twenty years ago and today houses over 2000 artworks. Previously, the French maison's Creative Director Nicolas Ghesquière, staged his collections for the brand in Rio de Janeiro, Palm Springs and Monaco. Now, the luxury label is set to revisit Japan after showcasing the Volez, Voguez, Voyagez exhibition in Tokyo last year.
Speaking about the museum, Ghesquière said: "The place inspired me right away. 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 tee. For our 2018 Cruise fashion show we are transported into a tangled web of nature, geographical greatness and a unique architectural vision."
